The REMEMBER Memorial Path has now been opened at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The interactive monument was created as part of the GeDenkOrt.Charité – Science and Social Responsibility project and in cooperation with the Berlin University of the Arts. REMEMBER addresses the role of Charité in the Nazi era, visibly and audibly tracking this time in the past at authentic locations on the Charité Mitte campus.
The project by the REMEMBER artist team, consisting of Sharon Paz, Jürgen Salzmann, and Karl-Heinz Stenz, uses emotionally touching audio-visual installations to make the silent places of memory on the campus speak for themselves. The commemorative sculptures at six historical sites are the central starting points. At the respective stations, the corresponding app provides access to interactive video art.
