Experience in a special way different aspects of the history of the Berlin Charité during the era of National Socialism. The REMEMBER app accompanies you on your journey through the Campus Charité Mitte in Berlin. The app leads you to six memorial sculptures and opens up artistic perspectives on this dark episode of history. As an interactive memorial, REMEMBER brings traces of this past into the present. It connects current technologies with contemporary art and thus allows previously silent sites of remembrance to speak.
Using the app on location gives access to interactive video art, 360 degree videos and augmented reality. Two fictional characters, a nurse and a caretaker, accompany visitors around the memory path and invite them to experience brief travels in time. Through the combination of different elements, the memorial sculptures, video art, and the original environment, REMEMBER creates a living remembrance.
“We want to emphasize respect for every human life and to initiate reflection on our own behavior.” REMEMBER is an art project developed by the artists Sharon Paz, Jürgen Salzmann, and Karl-Heinz Stenz and was selected as the winner of the competition “Memory Path”.
The project was developed in cooperation with GeDenkOrt.Charité – Science & Social Responsibility, an interdisciplinary working group of the Institute for the History of Medicine, the Berlin University of Art, and the Berlin Medical Historical Museum.
