The works in this international group exhibition tackle the politics of silence and genealogies of forgetting of colonialism, anti-Semitism, and turbo-nationalism in Belgium, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia. The exhibition takes a critical look at these three European regions, their histories, and their current experiences of collective amnesia in relation to traumatic pasts. The positions shown are interventions aimed at the present and the future and form counter-narratives against forgetting. Stories of Traumatic Pastsis the result of the FWF research project Genealogy of Amnesia at the Academy of Fine Arts.
