Jasmin Werner - Melted memoria - Walther und Franz König 2022
The publication Melted Memoria documents a five-part series of sculptural works by artist Jasmin Werner, in which three buildings interwoven history and materials are investigated: the Palace of the Republic, Berlin's City Palace, and Burj Khalifa. To enter a discussion on the culture of memory in public space, Werner draws on the controversy surrounding the construction of Berlin?s new City Palace, which was erected on the site of the former Palace of the Republic, and embarks on a search for clues of financial and ideological forms of exchange, which leads her from the Middle Ages to the globalized present.
