WOULD WE SAY NO ? III

[Concept for a gallery installation] / performance on NS-“Vergangenheitsbewältigung” and intercultural communication

concept alexandra reill
production kanonmedia | vienna 2009

The card objects WOULD WE SAY NO ? I form a pile placed on an old wooden farmer’s table, a kitchen table. Visitors can take cards with them.

The installation is accompanied by a moderator professionally equipped with knowledge of contemporary positions of NS-“Vergangenheitsbewältigung” and intercultural communication competences, going into talks with gallery visitors on occasion of looking at and taking the card objects.

The performative installation can be combined with the sound installation RESPONSIBILITY? contrasting Walter Benjamin’s text The Desctructive Character, text citations out of the media on contemporary fascism in Austria 2009 and answers given by passers-by in interviews led by Alexandra Reill on how follow-up generations of the 30ies and 40ies of a so-called Austrian “mainstream society” feel about taking on responsibility for NS atrocities in Austrian history.

In another version, the installation can be accompanied by an interviewer and a video camera worker recording the talks and discussions.

In this form, the concept was implemented in the framework of Südwind Festival 2009.
