For the past 20 years, Lithuanian-born artist Esther Shalev-Gerz (born 1948) has undertaken research into the construction of public memory through films, video installations, photographs and site-specific works that disrupt the discourses of such historiographic disciplines as anthropology, ethnology and museology. This volume surveys her work.
