on Stories of Traumatic Pasts: Counter-Archives for Future Memories

As part of the exhibition Stories of Traumatic Pasts: Counter-Archives for Future Memories, the Weltmuseum Wien is organising an international symposium focussing on the exhibiting artists in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts (FWF research project Genealogy of Amnesia). The works tackle the politics of silence and genealogies of forgetting of colonialism, anti-Semitism, and turbo-nationalism in Belgium, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia. They are intended as interventions aimed at the present and the future and form critical counter-narratives against forgetting.
The event will be held in English.
