Languages of publication
The article discusses the phenomenon of the copying of Lieux de mémoire situated in the public space of the city of Poznań on the example of the Poznań 1956 Protests Memorial. The study is focused on the problem of the production of new meanings, which are generated in relation to the monument – prototype. The context of the reception of Poznań 1956 Protests Memorial and the meaning of the initial commemoration changes depending on the form and location of copies. The article also considers the problem of consolidation of identities of social groups which occurs by reference to the symbol (memorial) of the 1956 Protests. In her research the author makes use of such concepts as Andrzej Szpociński’s “monumental memory”, Jean Baudrillard’s “simulacra and simulation” and Pierre Nora’s lieux de mémoire.
