Symposium "Memory of the City", Exhibition "Blue Print"
17 August – 1 September 2011
The Cultural Centre of Belgrade
Opening: Wednesday, 17 August, 8pm
The project explores the memory and the cultural heritage of the City of Belgrade, striving to identify different ways to activate the memory in urban regeneration and city identity formation, ranging from those which are in the domain of public policies to different practices in the field of art and culture. It is based on the premise that collective memory enables citizens to identify with history, as well as with the tangible and intangible heritage of their city, showing how the collective memory plays a defining role for the identity of a city, enhances cohesion within the community and incites citizens’ participation in the development of the city.
Beside the exhibition of Dušica Dražić’s artwork Blue Print, which deals with the individual memory of citizens of Belgrade and its possible impact on the city development, an important part of the project are the international symposium Memory of the City, workshops with students of the Faculty of Architecture and an art installation put in public space on the topic of collective memory.
