Politics of Remembrance - Explore Vienna's Culture of Remembrance


This English digital data visualization displays quantitative data in time and space along the subjects remembering and forgetting, space, place, types, social identity, personal identity and founders. Furthermore it offers filters to select memorials according dates of erection and issues. The digital map is based on a cooperation with the geographers Christoph Fink (University of Helsinki) and Ramon Bauer (University of Vienna) and graphic designer Tina Frank (University of Art and Design in Linz). It won the ICA Map Award 2019 (category "Digital Products").

Data for the period 2016-2018 will be integrated by September 2019.
