European Alliances of Academies: Contested Pasts, Shared Futures

Live Stream

To be able to think about the future, one must know the past, so the conventional wisdom goes. Narratives about the past, however, have become increasingly controversial. The reasons for this are manifold, as are the ways in which this contestation is articulated. Whether it is monuments in public spaces, the renaming or redesigning of art institutions, or even national history, the discourse around past and future narratives is omnipresent. Ultimately, the debate can lead to geopolitical conflicts. But it can also help shape new, shared perspectives. Examples from all over Europe are in focus.
