Abstract [en]

This chapter approaches the work of the Berlin-based Centre for Political Beauty [Zentrum Politische Schönheit] (CPB) with respect to the notion of 'activist citizenship'. It considers one of the CPB's political artworks—The Dead Are Coming [Die Toten Kommen]—which took place in June 2015, in terms of the politics of public mourning and contextualises it against a deeper genealogy of the performative use of digging as a form of protest in Berlin connected to the active remembrance of Germany's negative twentieth-century past. In turn, the chapter argues that The Dead Are Coming not only represented an 'act of citizenship' but also a form of 'activist remembrance'‚ which involved processes of mediatised performative commemoration. This emergent genre of commemoration is then introduced in more detail, before some of its digital gestural remains are mapped in order to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the artwork.
