Перформативная память и памятник вианбу в Южной Корее

The article is devoted to a visual and commemorative analysis of the monument to the victims of the Japanese-Korean War (vianbu). The installation of visual-sociological analysis is realized in this case not by means of exclusively visual hermeneutic, on the contrary, the idea of ​​the monument is deciphered in the context of the history and museum culture of Korea. It is shown that the meaning of the monument is recreated through rituals of performative resonant memory. The historical events to which the monument is dedicated still do not have a consensus in national and international historical memory, therefore they require a performative format of commemoration as a constantly redefined and confirmed by narrative accomplices of the commemoration. Among the participants in the commemorative process around the Vianbu memorial are social actors with various mnemonic abilities and institutional resources (actually surviving witnesses, activists of the commemoration fund and the public). In response to the social demand for commemoration, a new memorial aesthetic of anti-monumentality emerges, commensurate with the person, pulsating in the weekly ritual mode and habitable, like with scarf wrapped street sculpture.
