“ImmagineMemoria. Archivio di un’Europa in costruzione” exhibition has been organized by the research project “Bodies Across Borders: Oral and Visual Memories in Europe and Beyond (B.A.B.E.)”, in collaboration with the Historical Archives of the European Union and the State Archive in Florence. Its opening will be held at the State Archive in Florence on Thursday 05 April at 15:30
The aim of the BABE Project is to explore the changes induced by global mobility into visual memories of Europe, focusing on visual art production and on the traces of memory produced by mobile people (oral and visual interviews, maps, objects, drawings). The fieldwork has been done in two countries, Italy and The Netherlands, chosen for both their similarities and differences in relation to past and present movements of people, as this tension allows for a productive comparative study.The BABE project is funded by the European Research Council and based at the EUI, Florence.
The exhibition “ImmagineMemoria. Archivio di un’Europa in costruzione “ will present audio and video materials collected by the research team during five years of field research on the theme of memories of migration in Europe. All this material will be deposited at the Historical Archives of the European Union, at the end of the research project.
The exhibition, coordinated by Luisa Passerini and curated by Barbara D’Ambrosio and Costanza Meli (Associazione Isole), will continue until 05 May 2018.
