MEMORYWORK







MEMORYWORK is a platform for sharing interdisciplinary artistic research on performative memory work. The project is developed by artists with backgrounds in Choreography, Theatre, Performance Art and Art in Public Spaces.  

We ask questions about whose memories and which memories count, and how do we remember? Whose lives are afforded space?
