Albert Coers

Streets Names Lights. A Monument for the Mann Familiy

In 2018, Albert Coers (b. 1975) won the competition to design a memorial to the Mann family at the center of Salvatorplatz, a square in the heart of Munich. His proposal Streets Names Lights incorporates street signs bearing the names of various members of the Mann family, along with streetlamps from cities of particular importance to the family, including Munich, Lübeck, Nida, Rome, New York, São Paulo, and Zurich. The memorial conveys experiences of a life in exile, of internationality, and the family's charisma while simultaneously exploring the global reception of their work. This publication documents the creation of the memorial, together with the research behind it; interviews, texts, and images round out the volume with extensive background information.
