Memorials are sites for a group to remember the past as part of its identity and present challenges. Over the last hundred years there has been a shift in memorial forms from a figurative representation of heroes and victories to a modern, abstract focus on victims and loss, exemplified by Maya Lin’s 'Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial'. This talk will explore this change and analyse from a psychological perspective how visitors experience and interact with different kinds of memorial sites, including ‘Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe’ in Berlin and the ‘Ground Zero National September 11 Memorial’ in New York and ‘Valley of the Fallen’ in Spain. Brady Wagoner is Professor of Psychology and Director of the MA and PhD programs in Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University (Denmark).
