Weinheber ausgehoben – Unearthing a Nazi Poet 

The project deals with a memorial to Austrian poet and Nazi Josef Weinheber (1892-1945) which stands at the Schillerpark in Vienna’s city centre. A temporary intervention, carried out in 2013, aimed at exposing the monument’s conflicted history. Public debate and years of negotiations with the authorities led to the permanent artistic reconfiguration and contextualization of the monument in 2019.
