The following dossier was first published in ART PAPERS Fall/Winter 2020, Monumental Interventions. It highlights the work of seven artists, in various stages of their careers and hailing from multiple nations, who have interrogated and intervened upon the symbolic and formal language of monuments. Monumental Interventions presents possibilities for a radical reformation of monument traditions. These artists, in concert with many others, have fought—and continue the fight—to transform their public spaces by uncovering suppressed histories, resisting oppression, and telling formerly silenced truths.
