CALL FOR PAPERS - IC Memo conference 2018


IC MEMO conference Tel Aviv & Jerusalem, Israel, October 14-18, 2018

Submission deadline: June 30, 2018


IC MEMO is one of ICOM’s 31 International Committees. The aims of IC MEMO are to foster a responsible memory of history and to further cultural cooperation through education and through using knowledge in the interests of peace, which is also a key goal of UNESCO.


The 2018 IC MEMO conference theme is “Art, Memory, and Identity.” In this conference we will examine: the influence of memorial museums on shaping personal and collective memory; the intergenerational transmission of memory - how artist reflect different zeitgeists and express them visually. Therefore you are invited to present your lecture guided by the following topics and questions:


List of Topics

  • Topic 1: "Memory, Art, and Identity" Special Conference Theme
    • Taking into account the relevance of remembering the past and what influence memorialization can have on the way a society moves forward from trauma and loss, we wonder:

WHAT is the role of the artistic language on memorialization, democratization, and justice?

How does your institution incorporate art to help shape collective memory of the past? Could you elaborate examples of how your museum /memorial leverage art, art production, and art collections to assist in healing our society from public crimes?

Can art HELP transform tacit knowledge of a public crime (hidden knowledge known only to an individual) to explicit knowledge (knowledge that is articulated and becomes embedded in the fabric of cultural memory)? In particular, how can art and artists revolutionize the way in which personal stories become a part of public histories?
 

  • Topic 2: Memory Building through global Justice Departments & Courts

  • Topic 3: Eichmann Trial / Lessons from different World perspectives

Conference Keywords: 

Memory, museums, remembrance, Holocaust, history, cultural memory, audiences, multiple perspectives, memory studies, visitors, individual and collective memory, Jewish history, commemoration, memory institution, cultural heritage, community, art, global courts & justice systems
