From October 22, 1987, through May 10, 1988, Dia Art Foundation presented a series of lectures organized and conducted by Barbara Kruger and Phil Mariani under the title Remaking History. In their compelling introduction to the project, Mariani and Kruger asked: “What administers the souls of the dead? What is the euphoria of the panorama? What is the nearly voluptuous plenitude which, arranging sequences and ordering events, locks in the world? What revels in the site of the so-called objective with the abandon usually reserved for the body, but has no body? The Answer: History.” Scholars and writers from diverse fields, including literary criticism, history, media studies, feminist theory, architecture, and urbanism, came together to address the problems encountered in historical and historiographical production. Bernard Tschumi, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Cornel West, Michele Wallace, and Edward W. Said were among the participants.
