My walk from the south American rainforest to art - and memory and history - and public spaces, to the Bauhaus University and back to South America. The lecture will show my way from a forestry scientist to an artist, who started with abstract sculptures and turned to art and memory on public spaces (projects and exhibitions in Germany, Austria, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Lithuania, USA (MoMA, Jewish Museum, NY). I will discuss the revival of monumental memorials in our time and show some counter monuments (Holocaust Memorial, Berlin). At the end I will talk also about my new experiences as a guest professor of the Bauhaus-University. (some remarks to the MFA-studies). (Horst Hoheisel)
