Arch+ Features – Nikolaus Kuhnert
In occasion of the 72th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Nikolaus Kuhnert rises to speak at the end of the ARCH+ Features 56. The long-standing chief editor and publisher of the renowned architectural magazine draws attention to the current political events such as the speech of the AfD chairman in Thuringen, Björn Höcke, who labeled the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin as “disgrace”. Kuhnert warns against the growing radicalisation and the “reappearing ghosts”. He addresses the urgency to re-engage with memorials such as the Holocaust Memorial by Eisenman and Serra, its importance and history in times like these.
