Regional seminar, Mapping memories: the politics of remembering in former Yugoslavia
thursday, 11.december 2008. − 13.december 2008.
10:00, CZKD

The Seminar Mapping memories: the politics of remembering in former Yugoslavia is launched as a part of multiannual project Community of Memory. The Community of Memory project is a unique research-promotion platform that continues, gathers and encloses various projects, initiatives and ideas distinct for their treatment of the immediate and more distant past and our relation to it. The Community of Memory tends to reconsider the theoretical mechanisms the study of the past is grounded on, to analyze testimonies and discourses on the past, and set up a typological framework of the memorial culture in the region.
 
The Seminar Mapping memories: the politics of remembering in former Yugoslavia is scheduled from 11th to 13th December 2008. The aim of the seminar is to bring together artists and activists, academics and researchers, whose work, in field of culture and art, aims critically to re-appraise and question current practices of remembering and forgetting in the societies of former Yugoslavia.
 
The Centre for Cultural Decontamination intention is to advance in the direction already begun through earlier stages in this project (i.e. Community of memory) by continuing to gather varied initiatives who complement, and develop one another. Research projects, seminars, conferences, exhibitions and performances are all elements that stimulate and promote the active engagement of already existing actors and new actors in the field. The networks created by them are key in facilitating cooperation between initiatives - incorporating the broader public, art/cultural producers and the academic public - and moreover, developing these through critical insight into theory and practice gleaned from action, discussion and (re-) action.
Former Yugoslavia is an intersection of memories at which loss and trauma, identity and belonging, past and communality, are constantly re-negotiated. In the context of a proliferation of initiatives whose central theme is memory and remembrance, there prevails an implicit assumption that all these initiatives share the same purpose and similar objectives. The purpose of this seminar was to create a space and creative conditions for an articulation and discussion of similarities and divergences of insights, concepts, and politics that each of these initatives is developing and espousing. It was our intention to encourage the discussion by inviting artists and activists, academics and researchers to reflect on their initiatives through the following broad structure:
 
1.      Subject of memories: which are the groups/communities that are involved in activities that seek to remember the socio-political changes since 1990s to date?
 
2.      Materiality of memories: what are the concrete material practices through which these groups/communities carry out remembrance and how do they implement them?
 
3.      Politics of memories: On behalf of what kind of politics do these groups/communities remember? Can memories be harnessed for imagining and articulating an emancipatory, transformative politics? What would such emancipatory, transformative politics entail?
