On Monday, December 4th, at 19:00 Vladimir Paperny, writer, art historian, culture researcher, architecture historian and critic, author of books Culture Two and Mos Angeles, and professor at UCLA, will give a lecture “City and Memory” at MARCH.

"There are two levels of memory preservation in the city - public and private, conditionally speaking. Public memorials are usually dedicated to victories, heroes, conquests, and achievements. But it is equally important to preserve small or “private” memory of the local residents, memory of losses, of destruction, of victims. Berlin is a good example of preserving "private" memory. The trauma of being divided by the wall is preserved in the remains of the real concrete wall, in museums ("Topography of Terror"), and contours of the wall outlines in red stone where it has not been preserved. Monuments to tragic events can be seen in other cities as well. The problem of Moscow is that the "private memory" and memory of tragic events is basically ignored."
