But it is also obvious that a change of frames due to historical ruptures, new political debates, and artistic interventions can easily render them visible again and propel them into the focus of general and even scandalous attention. The first part of the essay inspects historical cases and contexts in which monuments suddenly lost and regained attention, analyzing the particular circumstances and strategies that drove these changes. The second part deals with migration monuments, presenting examples from immigration countries such as the United States, Argentina, and Brazil in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, where they played an important role in nation-building. In Germany, migration monuments are a newly evolving genre that is directly related to two highly contested themes: colonial history and Germany’s transformation into a more culturally diverse society.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>(In)visible Monuments : What Makes Monuments Controversial?</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56634"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/38"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-02-22T09:30:39Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-02-22T09:30:39Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2022</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
