About the workshop

Any war is a disaster, it is a trauma in the space of memory. This is an experience that is difficult to live through and comprehend, it affects entire generations, our ideas about security, justice, and the permission to  use violence. The memory of wars is a space where the state occupies a lot of space, storing the narratives that support it. To understand the influence of state narratives, it is important to look at history personally, at the grassroots level.

We will try to find a connection between our current political positions and our memory of past wars. Together we will try to collect a collective memory map of the wars of the past, consisting of personal experience, family stories, memes, associations, fragments of state narratives.
