      Contested Ground: Design and the Politics of Memory

      How can historians, architects, and designers make visible and physically memorialize lost histories—what the founding Director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, Lonnie Bunch, refers to as “histories that hide in plain sight?” What are the design implications of spatializing the politics of memory? To whom will these memorials speak, and what do they tell us about our shared past? A three-way conversation between Jeanne Gang, Amanda Williams, and Mabel Wilson will explore these questions based on their research and design projects addressing public space, race, and cultural memory.
