Memory Lab - Photography challenges History addresses the theme of photographic memory. How does the contemporary photographer approach the past, including the events that characterize Europe and its history, the world wars and the conflict in the Balkans and elsewhere? Beyond the desire to revive the memory of those cruel periods, the inability to “tell” the event through “photography” becomes ironic distancing or takes refuge in the personal journal, in a very particular subjectivity in which sensitivity outweighs the desire to document things in a quasi-scientific way. Photography abandoned its inviolable status as a witness to facts a long time ago and the contemporary approach combines in different ways a whole new personal sensitivity that characterizes the younger generation with a no less insistent reminder that history is bound to repeat itself.
