REPOhistory and the Lower Manhattan Sign Project

This project explores the collective REPOhistory’s inaugural project, the Lower Manhattan Sign Project (LMSP). The LMSP was a public installation of temporary, site-specific historical markers consisting of 39 signs in 36 locations by 49 members in 1992. The intent of REPOhistory’s LMSP was to reveal absent or missing historical narratives, which also commented on contemporary social issues, and to question standard historical representation.
