Hi, I am researching the uses of ‘performativity’ in Holocaust memorialization. I seek to examine case studies of audience-participatory projects (e.g. artworks, new media, museum exhibitions, performances) which commemorate the World War II and the victims of the Holocaust.
Projects of interest for this study:
- ask participants to perform symbolic rituals and gestures of commemoration; or to contribute with written or oral responses
- present the audiences with an immersive and interactive environment
- re-enact moments from history through performance
- display other interactive aspects which challenge audience members' perceptions and understandings of the past
I would be grateful if you could recommend examples of works that present any of these characteristics.
Thank you in advance.
