This volume presents installations, videotapes, photographs, sculptures and paintings on historical themes by 37 internationally renowned artists. These works - predominantly from the last decade of the 20th century - are notable for their absence of analytical narrative. Instead they work with symbols and metaphors, with excerpts and montages from documentary films and with unmanipulated press photographs. Works like Sigrid Sigurdsson's 'Bibliothek der Alten' or 'Das Geschenk' by Jochen Gerz are in effect co-authored by ordinary people. Remembering becomes an active process common to all. Informative essays by experts in the field pave the way for a deeper understanding of the topic. Featured artists include: Marina Abramovic, Lutz Dammbeck, Hanne Darboven, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Günther Förg, Jochen Gerz, Johannes Grützke, Alfred Hredlicka, Jörg Immendorff, Ilya Kabakov, William Kentridge, A.R. Penck, Raffael Rheinsberg, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra, Hiromi Tsuchida, Rachel Whiteread
