Join uf for a two-day event (December 14–15) for artists, activists and researchers, organized in Warsaw by the Zapomniane Foundation, the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and FestivALT.
The event is a meeting of experts and practitioners – heritage professionals, memory activists, artists, educators and civic society organizations – to reflect on the potential of various approaches to difficult heritage. In particular, we are interested in the potential of the use of art and multidisciplinary toolbox to tackle difficult and/or contested issues.
The event consists of four sessions. The first two are focused on sites and objects that can be called difficult heritage. The third will be a debate around a single object and questions it poses. The fourth will be a panel discussion on the uses of art as a method of working with difficult heritage and contemporary challenges.
