Toppled Monuments Archive Presentation     

The Toppled Monuments Archive (TMA) is an artist and activist-run digital archive of toppled colonialist, imperialist, racist, and sexist monuments: monuments that are pushed into lakes, set on fire, pulled down by rope, and rolled down the street by the people. Formed in 2020, TMA is a radical international collective that has come together to create the most comprehensive, accessible, open-source online platform of recorded toppled monuments. In this presentation, TMA Founder Jillian McManemin will discuss TMA's present/future projects to reorient historic preservation and meaning-making.    

§  Wednesday, February 23rd from 6:15-7:00 PM ET via Zoom.
