Preserving a monument goes hand in hand with destroying it. In order to preserve architecture, cultural monuments and relics, they are often re-located, allowing urban displacement to arise leading to the disappearance of the concept of autonomous geography and archaeology.The dislocation of a monument does not only alter the history of its original location, but also leads to a radical re-interpretation of the monument itself.For his exhibition in 2011 at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Cyprien Gaillard created a new work containing complex implications, which will only be revealed through an act of complete defiance.Similar to public amnesia, lost in the hopeless interaction with the monument, the gradual destruction becomes a part of the aesthetic of resistance. This catalogue depicts the gradual destruction of the sculpture.Included is a conversation with Cyprien Gaillard and Susanne Pfeffer.English and German text.
