Between Personal Chronicles and Collective Memory
2. – 9.6.2021, Instituto Cervantes Berlin, Rosenstraße 18, 10178 Berlin:
What do we remember? Are memories a reconstruction of the real? Are they built upon real facts or merely fictional stories? Is it possible to create a historiography based on personal narratives? The exhibition examines the ephemerality of memories by portraying different methods, such as collecting material, tracing paths, recording or reconstructing oral histories. With María Linares (Bogotá / Berlin), Daniela Lehmann Carrasco (Santiago de Chile / Berlin), Ana María Millán (Cali / Berlin), Yoel Díaz Vázquez (La Habana / Berlin)
