Border Memories: Re-enacting Difficult Heritage by Elisa Mansutti (POLIMI April 2014)

The project aims to re-discover the past of the transnational territory called Venezia Giulia, shared by Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, where the ethnic fights along the years have left numerous traces fixed in the soil and geography of the place. Traces that need to be somehow re-activated since the memory of all dark periods have been, sometimes consciously, sometime involutarily, removed and never re-elaborated.

Form of Memories: Thinking about history in public places

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

[“Places of Remembrance” by Stih and Schnock, Berlin 1993]

lablog has been invited at the Newcastle Fine Art School [26NOV2013, at 16:00 in the seminar room at ground floor] for the lecture  “Form of Memories: Thinking about history in public places” as part of the REcall project initiatives.

The presentation deals with how monuments and memorials seem over time to have lost their effectiveness and have become empty simulacri of a remembrance and a memory they are no longer able to reactivate or keep alive. And this is where the investigation on traditional and new form of commemorative art works takes off.

The Venice workshop has for REcall a double challenge: is the occasion for launching officially (and in public) the project and also to test the quality and the quantity of its research queries. But the choice of Venice is not by chance, but a carefully elaborated decision connected to the specific concept behind the fore coming 13th Architecture Biennale titled ‘Common Ground’.
