Notes on Historical Amnesia

installation, 2015

 

Notes on Historical Amnesia displayed the research process behind the film Negotiating Amnesia and it was conceived as a learning resource to be activated and transformed by a series of workshops with high school students. The film was deconstructed to explore its pedagogical potential. Most surfaces were painted in blackboard paint so that the students could intervene on them. Through a teachers’ pack and a workshop, they were introduced to methods for the analysis of images and texts, in order to empower them with the instruments to approach and deconstruct historical and documentary practices in a critical way.
