Podcast on “The Landscape of our Memory”

We are pleased to share a podcast hosted by the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre in which we are interviewed about our latest project, the Landscape of Our Memory. You can access the podcast here.

We would like to thank the Johannesburg Centre and the four academic leaders who interviewed us, including Andrea Pető, Central European University; Tali Nates, Executive Director and Founder of the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre; Steven Carr, Professor of Communication and Director of the Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Purdue University in Fort Wayne; and Bjorn Krondorfer, Director of the Martin-Springer Institute and Endowed Professor of Religious Studies at Northern Arizona University. A special thanks is due to Bjorn whose work we have admired for a long time and who recommended us for this podcast.

The Landscape of our Memory is a long-term artistic project that addresses the “dispersed Holocaust” or “Holocaust by Bullets” by commemorating the more than 2 million individuals who were killed in or near their hometowns rather than in concentration camps. Inspired by the work of academics studying the Environmental History of the Holocaust (a relatively new sub-field of Holocaust studies), we also explore the links between genocide and ecocide and call attention to the environmental crises we currently face, including climate change. You can find more information, including initial imagery from this “work in progress” here

Although this is a difficult topic, we consider it an important and necessary one to address, and we plan to continue working in Poland and neighboring countries in the months and years to come. We welcome your comments and suggestions as we move forward.
