The summer issue 142 MONUMENT takes a deep dive into questions around monumentality, historicization, collective mourning, temporality and public art, turning to the practices of Life of a Craphead, Pejvak (Rouzbeh Akhbari & Felix Kalmenson), Charlene Vickers, Stephanie Comilang, Rebecca Belmore, Chris E. Vargas and the Museum of Transgender Hirstory & Art and more, to consider what a monument used to mean, what its status is today, and what alternatives might be to the construction of monolithic, weatherproof statues to signal ongoing processes of commemoration and thought.
