A Series of Discussions for Teens: Memory and TimeA Series of Discussions for Teens: Memory and Time

DESCRIPTION

This series of discussions for teenagers is based around current exhibitions at Garage, focusing on the historical and cultural understanding of time and memory.

Participants will engage in memory studies aiming to find answers to the questions of what memory and history are, how the ways of speaking about memory are changing, what oblivion is needed for, as well as the role of new technology in this context. Each subject will be considered through relevant media practices, including graphic novels, selfies, and TikToks, allowing participants to draw parallels with contemporaneity.

The meetings are not thematically interconnected, meaning you can visit only those that interest you the most or, alternatively, attend all sessions.

Cultural Trauma and Collective Identity. Why do We Remember Terrible Events?

“What is trauma?” The answer to this question is not as obvious as it seems. The twentieth century became the age of major world wars and global cataclysms, the consequences of which historians and philosophers are still analyzing.

The session will focus on how individual and collective trauma differ, why some events are traumatic, and others are not. Participants will also discuss the routinization phenomenon and define its role in coping with trauma.

Memory Across Generations. Graphic Novels as a Way to Tell an Important Story

Can other people's memories become our own? The descendants of generations that have lived through the great twentieth-century catastrophes, such as war or genocide, often feel that they have been influenced by events that happened long before they were born.

The group will explore Marianne Hirsch’s concept of postmemory and explore new ways of talking about disasters using the graphic novel Mouse as their example, aiming to answer the question of how the media (graphic novels, photo and video blogs) help to speak about difficult events and traumatic memories.
