Uncommissioned Interventions: Unofficial Heritage Management + The Untergunther (UX), by R Price

If it is not possible to reform the fundamental authority structures and power relationships that continue to contribute to the misinterpretation and misrepresentation of cultural heritage despite ‘progressive’ efforts, maybe the ideal solution is to empower and train communities to manage their own heritage. ‘Uncommissioned Interventions’ conducted outside of the official sphere, by groups like The Untergunther, while problematic, are worth exploring as a form of true community participation.

Target Audience

Conservators and Cultural Heritage Management Professionals.


  1. You may be interested by the conference that the historian Jon Lackman gave at the Long Now Foundation with Lazar Kunstmann (spokesman of the Untergunther).

  2. Dear Anonymous, thank you for the link. I briefly spoke with Lazar after his return from this conference, unfortunately, the video was posted a bit too late to contribute to my research.
