DEALING WITH THE PAST

February 2nd, 2012

Presentation & Critical Debate with Raycho Stanev

Starting point for discussion is the interactive installations about the memories of Socialism time:
Stories for 1968 – the tipping point for East Europe
Visual Propaganda and how it use to work
The Great Excursion – project about bulgarian Turks hundreds of thousands of who were expelled from Bulgaria in 1989. A hidden chapter of European history, almost unknown in West Europe, it is a reminder of what happens when DNA, rather than our shared humanity, is the focus of attention.
