Postmemory – Is This About Me? (in Polish)

Workshop relate to the unique European and later world phenomenon of ‘postmemory’ –indirect knowledge and experience of the past; memory we do not understand, we are concerned about and sometimes even reject it. We invite you to follow the subject in art – monuments, sculptures, museums, excerpts of theatre performance which were artistic ways of expressing the voice of postwar generations; for them II World War was both distanced and very close event building and shaping their perplex identity. Does ‘postmemory’ mean ‘to remember’? Is it possible to remember events we have not lived through or experienced ourselves? Isn’t it enough to simply remember the past and live on? Does postmemory phenomenon still describe our contemporary reality and life?
