Wits Art Museum | Men and Monuments: A conversation with the artist Paul Emmanuel
For the past decade, in a project titled "The Lost Men", South African artist Paul Emmanuel has challenged conventions around war memorials. He has questioned which soldiers are memorialised and which erased, and the stereotypes around soldiers and masculinity. In contrast to accepted practices where war memorials are erected using robust, permanent and immovable materials such as granite, he commemorates the forgotten using his own transient and vulnerable body to transform himself into a living, but temporary war ‘counter-memorial’ or ‘anti-monument’. WAM invites you to join us in conversation with the artist about his latest exhibition Men and Monuments.
