RE-MEMBERING THE CIV
Centre d'Identification de Vincennes
Remembering the CIV (Centre d’Identification de Vincennes) is a research project led by Beth Weinstein that aims to make this detention and internment camp’s location, its architecture and the events that occurred there knowable to a broad public. The research explores how AR technologies can create a dynamic experience of a virtual CIV, as well as previously silenced voices, in the site where this internment camp once stood. This project also speculates on how a site-specific event can expand engagement with the phantom CIV into an embodied, collective, performative, and spatial act of re-membering.
