About the book:
What purpose do monuments serve in Filipino society? Defaced, politicized, personalized or simply ignored, they now appear to stand for everything which they are not. No longer functioning as keepers of memory to be consumed/used by the public, monuments have come to stand solidly as parodies of a people’s past and present.
