Virtual Commemoration: The Iraqi Memorial Project

by Joseph DeLappe and David Simpson

Critical Inquiry, Summer 2011, v. 37, no. 4, pp. 615-626

Joseph DeLappe and David Simpson discuss —a virtual exhibit that provide a "forum for unsponsored art and for the expression of an unfunded grief" (617). The Iraqi Memorial Project privileges anti-monumental proposals that engage commemoration as an ongoing event rather than a permanent or fixed monument.
