Thursday Sessions: The Fake, The False and the Fraudulent: coding and undoing public monuments in contested spaces.

In the upcoming discussion in Lund, a co-sponsored production between the Skissernas Museum and r-Lab at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, we plan to assess how deception in the public sphere becomes an alternative version of truth. It seems wherever we go these days, physical history is misrepresented, whitewashed or dubiously erased. Johanna Bratel co-founder of Disorder in Malmö, Alessandro Petti Professor in Architecture and Social Justice at the RIA, Johanna Gustafsson Fürst, Stockholm artist, Patrick Amsellem, director of the Skissernas Museum will bring their distinct perspectives on issues concerning heritage sites, collective memory, urban culture and design.   

Moderated by Peter Lang, r-Lab instructor and Professor of Architectural Theory and History at the RIA.

This event is organised by The Royal Institute of Art (RIA) in Stockholm in partnership with Skissernas Museum. The program is in English.
