Members of the artistic and academic team behind the Bulgarian Pavilion at the 2024 Venice Biennale will be in Regensburg. They will offer a workshop on 6 May aimed at researchers and students, while on 7 May there will be a public talk open to all.

Please register by 30 April at campus@europeamerica.de.

The sessions will be based on the long-term research and creative projects that have led to this installation piece, which explores working through the communist past in Bulgaria.

This workshop is aimed at academics, graduate reserachers and students who are seeking creative ways of developing research output beyond traditional publications, showing how film and art can provide outlets for findings and for generating public discussions on difficult pasts. The session will offer an opportunity for practical reflection on how to break down barriers between different domains of knowledge creation and dissemination. There will also be reflection on the Neighbours project, including the challenges and failures encountered along the way.

This ScienceCampus event takes place in cooperation with: The Center for Commemorative Culture (Zentrum Erinnerungskultur), Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS Regensburg), and the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies (GS OSES UR).

The event will be followed by a public artist talk on Tuesday, 7 May at 18:00, titled
„The Making of The Neighbours: The Artist Studio as a Transitory Archive or How to Visualize Silenced Histories?“
