Politics of Concealment and Genealogies of Forgetting Colonialism

Belgian colonialism in the Congo. Anti-Semitism in Austria. Turbo-nationalism in former Yugoslavia. Over the last two centuries, these three historic lines of violence and annihilation (re)enforced a process of oblivion that to this day prevents a processing of the genocides they caused. Today, involuntary or performed amnesia again threatens to destroy what has already come to a point of possible coexistence. This exhibition catalogue goes back to these traumatic events in history and the recent past, which had such a violent impact on communities and people, states and territories, and confront them with a system of interventions. The scars that remain after atrocities, although hidden and obliterated, are recovered through artistic, scientific, and political reflections.
