Videos of all participating speakers at Art of Memory, Bonniers Konsthall, 4 September 2013. In cooperation with Time, Memory, Representation.

On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition series Art of Memory at Bonniers Konsthall and at surrounding museums, a symposium was set up together with the research program Time, Memory, Representation (histcon.se, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond) at Södertörn University. The symposium presented artistic as well as theoretical aspects on recent transformations in historical consciousness. The invited speakers did not only revolve around what we remember today, but also why and how, and how that is configured in the artistic field as well as in the science of humanities and history in relation to society at large.
Introduction by Sara Arrhenius, director of Bonniers Konsthall and co-curator of Art of Memory and Hans Ruin, professor of Philosophy at Södertörn Univeristy and director of the research program Time, Memory and Representation.
The symposium is a collaboration between Bonniers Konsthall, Time, Memory, Representation (histcon.se, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond) and Polish Institute, Stockholm.
