Abstract

This document presents a discussion of forms for monuments to complex histories. It is designed to be read alongside Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner: The involvement of Aboriginal people from Tasmania in key events of early Melbourne. The working group which guided the research for Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner: The involvement of Aboriginal people from Tasmania in key events of early Melbourne considered the forms that a ‘monument’ to such a history may take and unanimously agreed on a conceptual framework for commemoration that is suitable for a history of this nature, complexity and gravity. This framework takes into account developments in the ways that publicly important histories can be commemorated. The reinvention of the monument by artists and some architects over time has offered interesting and engaging forms of commemoration. If it were recommended to publicly commemorate these stories, the issues detailed below should be considered. They could be used in a brief to artists and part of a process of commissioning a work. -- See also: "Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner: The involvement of Aboriginal people from Tasmania in key events of early Melbourne.
