The purpose of the projects DENKMAL ANDERS is, to sustainably contribute to the support of the awareness for the protection of species and biodiversity.
As part of the academic education young artists develop memory signs – and forms that can be rethought within the sphere of the local flora and fauna and are dedicated to those. This will happen in a tight collaboration with the natural sciences and the six national parks Austria.

Within the framework of lectures and conversations, the topic „Remembrance” will be examined through a historico-cultural and contemporary lens. The meaning of cultural memory, its forms and functions will be analysed.
Commemorations will be transformed into a new context.
