Keynote Address by Christiane Hertel, Bryn Mawr College
“Contradiction in Perpetuity: Ulrike Truger’s Encounter Monument Elisabeth – Zwang Flucht Freiheit 1998/99”
 
Greetings delivered by Astrida Orle Tantillo, Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago
Representing three essential aspects of Empress Elisabeth’s life united in one monumental marble sculpture, yet in tension with each other, Truger invites the examination of the relationships between the concepts of monument and encounter both in the work and for its viewers. These relationships involve the histories of the three-in-one sculpture and the 18th-century aesthetic discourse about it, the Habsburg state imperial portrait in the medium of sculpture, as well as Elisabeth‘s place within Truger’s oeuvre and among several of her provocative works’ placements and displacements in Vienna’s urban spaces. Elisabeth‘s precise sculptural language of the in-between defines it less as a countermonument than an encounter monument.
Christiane Hertel is Professor Emerita of History of Art at Bryn Mawr College. She specializes in the arts of Northern Europe, from the Reformation to the twentieth century, mainly in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. Her interest in visual and literary traditions has led her to focus on research projects involving their interplay. Over the years this interest also resulted in studies of monumental sculpture, their topics ranging from the 18th-century sculptor Ignaz Günther (Pygmalion in Bavaria, 2011) to Käthe Kollwitz’ WWI memorial Mourning Parents (in Scarborough and Dixon, Art and Social Change, 2016), and from the monumental Dance of Death from the 15th through mid-20th centuries (2001) to Edmund Klotz’ sepulchral monument for the writer Otto Friedlaender in the Jewish cemetery section of Vienna’s Zentralfriedhof (JAS, 2015).
