Peace and the Politics of Memory

7 december 2022 kl 13:15 - 8 december 2022 kl 12:30

A two-day conference that explores the topic of Peace and the Politics of Memory. Join distinguished panels in conversations on a range of themes at the intersection of research, art, and activism.

Politics of memory is central for the rhetoric and practice of war and conflict. At the same time, understanding the role of the past is key to a more peaceful and just future.

How does the use of monuments, museums and commemoration affect the possibilities to build a peaceful society after conflict? How does colonialism imprint on present day peacebuilding? Can art function as a realm for dealing with the past through truth-seeking, memorialization and even fact-finding? Can memory activism challenge revisionism and bring just peace?

New imaginations through art
Does art hurt or heal? Art is a realm for dealing with the past – through truth-seeking, memorialization and even fact-finding. The roundtable discusses art as a site for resistance as well as a path towards reconciliation after war and state violence, including the Swedish state violence against Sapmí people. It asks how imaginations of cultural heritage can be expanded and challenged.
