WHAT IS THE MEMORY & ARTS WORKING GROUP?
The Memory & Arts Working Group considers the role of the arts in the transmission of memory and the ways in which they give expression to experience by transmuting it into form. They not only narrate a story but enact its affect. The presence of art thus can open up a space for a witness who did not directly observe an event. This space enables multiple connections across generations and cultures. The Memory & Arts working group invites scholars and artists to explore those interconnections by focusing on a variety of arts practices, still and moving images, artefacts, and performances. Our aim is to form a long-term working group that collaborates on different projects and publications.
