COUNTER-MEMORIES: HISTORY IN MINOR MODE
BASED ON ARTISTIC, LITERARY AND SOCIOLOGICAL WORKS THAT EXPLORE THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION, THIS EVENING QUESTIONS THE PLACE OF WITNESS AND THE FORMS OF REMEMBRANCE IN THE WRITING OF HISTORY - AT THE ARTICULATION OF THE PERSONAL AND POLITICAL, THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE COLLECTIVE, THE FAMILY AND THE SOCIAL.
The aim is to explore the potential of counter-memories to write a story that is not the one of the winners.
