Memory & Arts WG | Cultural Program USB G.003
Jul 04, 2023 13:00 - 14:00(Europe/London)
20230704T1300 20230704T1400 Europe/London Memory & Arts WG Lunch & Talk - ‘Weaving/Mining, or an Archive of Promise’

The Marrakech-Berlin group will present a collective work developed through the method of 'cadavre exquis' (exquisite corpse) by which individual contributions are assembled to form a collective composition. This work is inspired by weaving and mining as possible ways of approaching forgetting/memory and of experimenting with layering and interweaving different sorts of cultural archives: songs, sounds and languages, gestures, stories and embodied remembrance, images, objects and textiles. This process of working individually together and of assembling singular notions, or fragments, of an extended archive also interrogates contemporary issues of memory and ways in which they present themselves in different cultural geographies - a process we frame as an archive of promise that is, at the same time, a futuristic palimpsest.
