Genocide Memorialisation


"Genocide Memorialisation: Political Imaginaries and Public Materialisations" is an international conference organised by the 'Genocide Memorialisation' seminar based at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

This conference is an opportunity for curators, commissioners, scholars and researchers across the arts, humanities and social sciences to consider the highly specific, but nonetheless pervasive, cultural phenomenon, of public commemoration of genocide and mass killing. The conference wishes to consider the unsettling intersection of questions of mass murder, historicisation, memory-work, artistic production and public culture at a historical moment marked by a resurgence of xenophobic, ethno-nationalist and racist mobilisations.

The conference is also realised in conjunction with the Public Art Courses of the Valand Academy that have been inititated in partnership with the Public Art Agency Sweden, to provide an opportunity for continuing professional development by artists, curators, commisisoners and policy makers in the public art arena.
