CASE STUDIES

If you are working with objects and contested heritage, we invite you to fill out our survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/V7WZ9XD

We are looking for initiatives that bring together groups of citizens or small circles (20+/-) of cultural mediators (artists, activists, journalists) to discuss pressing and controversial issues of contemporary societies, fragmentation, populism, exclusion, new narratives and languages, roadmaps and manifestos. We are especially looking for initiatives that use a site of memory to create a protected environment, a closed setting, a space in which people feel safe to enter into a dialogue about conflict issues with other participants who hold opposing opinions. Thereby heritage becomes a laboratory, a workshop in which nothing is set and all is in motion and thus historic transgression becomes possible. In these cases heritage environments offer an objectifying space in which the individual perspective is taken serious but not absolute, because it is experienced in relation to a historic perspective.
