Individuals as well as entire cultures maintain memories, creating their "memory.” This allows them to define their identity and legitimacy, and confirm their goals. Aleida Assmannová asks questions about the various tasks of cultural remembering and its tools (including documents, images, monuments) in their historical and technical transformations as well as in the methods of handling the ever increasing amount of knowledge, endowing politics and science as well as art with increased importance.
