This interview was conducted via email between February and early April 2020. We asked Rothberg to reflect on how his work relates to questions of perpetration, guilt, responsibility, and complicity. We also invited him to talk about the status of memory and commemoration, the relationship between implication and multidirectionality, the role of affect, and the special status he accords to art as a site for thinking through and making visible structures of implication.
