MemoryLab – Photography Challenges History
14 November 2014 – 12 January 2015
In 2014, the European Month of Photography (EMoP) celebrates its tenth anniversary. 2014 is also the year in which Europe commemorates the outbreak of World War I. For this reason, partner cities have collaborated on a joint exhibition on the history of the 20th century.
Burdened with a fraught historic legacy, which includes the two World Wars, the Yugoslav Wars, and the challenges of integration within Europe, artists participating in these exhibitions, organized in various European capitals, explore the histories of their native countries and reflect on subjective experiences in order to help us gain a deeper understanding of the official accounts of the past and its repercussions.
