What constitutes our Houses of
Memories? What does it contain, who do we share it with? How do
collective, national traumata haunt individual biographies? And how can
cultural memory studies and artistic works influence one another?
Participants, among others: Jane Jin Kaisen (artist, Copenhagen), Lizza May David (artist, Berlin), Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa (artist, London) (tbc), Elahe Haschemi Yekani (Europa-University Flensburg), Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky (Ruhr-University Bochum), Anja Michaelsen (Ruhr-University Bochum), Karin Michalski (Academy of Media Arts Cologne), students and graduates of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
Concept & organisation: Anja Michaelsen (Ruhr-University Bochum) & Karin Michalski (Academy of Media Arts Cologne).
