To mark the dismantling of Monument at the Zuiderzee Museum after ten years, Clare Twomey engaged with the visitors of the museum in a participatory artist project: Monument – the golden thread. Visitors were given the opportunity to select a historic tile from the sculpture, which were then registered in the name of the new owner and provided with a golden wax seal and authentication by the Zuiderzee Museum.
In a conversation convened by the design historian Tessa Peters with Erik Schilp and Clare Twomey, they reflect on the role of the sculpture and the changes it has witnessed in museology, society and culture. Read a transcript here.
