Conversations with images

July 12– 15:00-19:00 CET

As part of the MSA week of Virtual Events 2022, The Memory & Arts Working Group is offering two consecutive sessions in which artworks take centre stage. We would like to invite conversations that explore how the works address questions of memory in their medium-specific way.

A short introduction to each work will be followed by brief responses that open up further perspectives and generate a wider conversation that involves the audience. By looking at six works from different cultural and geographical contexts, we hope to create a multi-directional conversation that makes the works and the memories they address speak to each other and provides a context for transnational mnemonic solidarity.

The works we shall be looking at are:

3 – 4:15 pm (CEST)
