Abstract

The objective of this article is to direct a critical look, and, from there, to make a general assessment about the public art policies developed in our country regarding the place of memory “The Civil War in Euskal Herria” (P. Nora, 1997), in light of the debates and critical theories that have arisen at international level regarding memory and public art. The analysis will start from the field of cultural memory (A. Erll, 2008), focusing particularly on sculptural monuments and the place of memory “the Civil War in Euskal Herria”, but with the ultimate aim of being the opening up of a proposal for a more general basic reflection on the democratisation of public art policy procedures related to memory.
