The exhibition Stories of Traumatic Pasts, curated by Marina Gržinić, Christina Jauernik and Sophie Uitz is on view at the Weltmuseum Wien until April 3, 2021.

The exhibition focuses on three European regions, their stories, and their current experiences of collective amnesia in relation to traumatic events from the past: Belgian colonial rule in the Congo, Austria after the "Anschluss" in 1938, and the denial of war crimes since 1990 after the breakup of Yugoslavia.

Marina Gržinić, will have a lecture on the exhibition, take the audience for a travelogue on the concept and contexts of the show, participating artists, and future perspectives.

The online lecture will be held in English. Follow this link https://fairteaching.net/b/khm-7x9-cfm!
