The access to the dignity of mourning, that is the possibility for a given community to remember the dead and to transmit their memory, requires several semiotic acts of mediation. In this paper we concentrate on the Argentina case during its postdictatorship phase during which a number of places of memories have been created and peculiar rituals of commemoration in the urban space have been envisaged in order to remember the desaparecidos. The second part of this article is dedicated to the Parque de la memoria y los derechos humanos, located on the Rio de la Plata, very close to the airport from which the “flights of death” used to take off. How does the park represent a space that may help the working through of a traumatic past for those who have disappeared? And how does the design of this space constitute a peculiar practice of urban commemoration?

Abstract

The access to the dignity of mourning, that is the possibility for a given community to remember the dead and to transmit their memory, requires several semiotic acts of mediation. In this paper we concentrate on the Argentina case during its postdictatorship phase during which a number of places of memories have been created and peculiar rituals of commemoration in the urban space have been envisaged in order to remember the desaparecidos. The second part of this article is dedicated to the Parque de la memoria y los derechos humanos, located on the Rio de la Plata, very close to the airport from which the “flights of death” used to take off. How does the park represent a space that may help the working through of a traumatic past for those who have disappeared? And how does the design of this space constitute a peculiar practice of urban commemoration?
