Advanced Participation by Participation in advance. Public History as Shared Authority at the Exhibition “Ost-Berlin. Die halbe Hauptstadt”

There is more than just one East Berlin. People made very different experiences with the capital of the GDR. Hence there are also plenty of different memories of the East German capital. An exhibition on the history of East Berlin has to take these different perspectives into account and should be based on shared authority.

La « Grande Guerre » entre souvenir et oubli

Le 11 novembre 2018 a eu lieu la commémoration du centenaire de l’armistice qui a mis fin à la Première Guerre mondiale. Quelle mémoire garde-t-on aujourd’hui des événements, des victimes et des traumatismes d’une guerre qui a ravagé l’Europe de 1914 à 1918 ? De quoi se souvient-on et qu’est ce qui a été réprimé et perdu ?
