Exploring the city’s POLITICS OF REMEMBRANCE – Online at porem.wien
POREM stands for “Politics of Remembrance and the Transition of Public Spaces: A Political and Social Analysis of Vienna” and is a research project conducted at the University of Vienna, Department of Government.
POREM investigated the memorial landscape of Vienna, dealing with political violence by the Austrofascist regime (between 1934 and 1938) and the National Socialist regime (between 1938 and 1945) and identified temporal, topical, actor-related, and scale-related layers of memorialization that have shaped the whole cityscape and its public spaces since 1945.
The interactive POREM map, developed by Christoph Fink, Tina Frank and Ramon Bauer, allows the user to define temporal, spatial, social, and thematic factors for drawing specific maps of remembrance and also maps of forgetting.
In July 2019, this map was awarded Winner of the Digital Products category at the International Cartographic Conference (ICC2019) in Tokyo
