How do creatives decide, define, and design cultural preservation?
Eden Redmond invites us to examine the tools and processes of preservation with an interdisciplinary approach of art history, media studies, and land advocacy work. Written and visual media are used in classrooms, museums, parks, and popular culture to teach and uphold society’s most essential beliefs and histories. How are the artists and creatives who produce that media and text implicated in and uniquely positioned to shape what is preserved and taught? Is there such a thing as an objective author, and if not, what roles can subjectivity play?
