The work of memory collapses time and breaks down the boundaries between past, present and future. To remember, can be to collect and release the stories of silenced voices and experiences into the present, changing the future.

To remember can be to resist the deliberate act of forgetting the violence and exploitation that marks colonial history, its practice and self-celebratory story-telling. The word “re-member” carries the meaning of making whole and restoring, but also of mourning. To remember can be a process of artistic practice, and a work of art.

In their works and processes, artists Katarina Pirak Sikku and Tomas Colbengtson explores and represents the works of memory. In the Open School-format, they will share their experiences of artistic thought and practice in lectures and dialogue.
