Uses of the Past research programme presents:

Closed Prisons, Former Refugee camps and Other Spaces of Past Repression Revisited

Have you ever visited a prison? Do you know about FÆNGSLET in Horsens?

And did you know there is an ongoing project to open a museum in Oksbøl, where German

refugees fled right after WWII?

What should we do with former spaces of repression, suffering, atrocities and despair once closed?

Who makes this kind of choices? And why? For whom?

Our guests:

Oriol López Badell (European Observatory on Memories. EUROM)

Laura McAtackney (Associate Professor AU, prison heritage)

Merete Bøge Pedersen (FÆNGSLET, Horsens Prison Museum)

Anne Sofie Vemmelund Christensen (Refugees Museum Project in Oksbøl)

Sarah Smed (Danmarks Forsorgsmuseum)

 

will join a round table to discuss on interaction and cooperation between cultural institutions and citizens to give shape to public spaces and use them actively as sites of learning, participation and vital change.

Join us!

November 8 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Building 1481, room 239 (Nobelparken)
