Travelling Back: Reframing a 19th-century expedition from Munich to Brazil

This one-day conference explores the contributions of artists and scholars working with archives (and their silences) on public memory and history writing.

By taking the exhibition "Travelling Back: reframing a Munich expedition to Brazil in the 19th century" (Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, 9 February - 5 April 2024) as a starting point, it draws on concepts such as Saidiya Hartman‘s ‘critical fabulation’ to inquire about fiction and visual imagery as means of knowledge production about past and present.

Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.
