“Counterfactual history is, at the very root, the idea of conjecturing on what did not happen, or what might have happened, in order to understand what did happen.”(Jeremy Black and Donald M. McRaild, 2007)
“A monument is something that represents power, or selects a piece of history and tries to materialize it, visualize it, represent it, always from the point of view of the elite. The anti-monument on the contrary is an action, a performance. Everybody is aware of its artificiality.” (Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, 2002)
Today we are releasing our latest project of 2014. Titled Anti-Monuments to Counterfactural Histories, the artwork consists of a series of LEGO sculptures.
We appropriated and altered four LEGO Architecture kits.
The first artworks are titled 02/20/1909, 12/12/1969, 07/15/1972 and 09/12/1987.
The project is ongoing.
You can see the entire series here.
