Three speakers from Ukraine, Mykhailo Glubokyi from the east, Yevhen Hlibovytsky from the west and Vasyl Cherepanyn, Director of 2015 ECF Princess Margriet Award laureate Visual Cultural Research Center from Kiev, will give a short impulse presentation on their view of the current conflict from the perspective of collective memory. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion including the public moderated by Ivan Krastev.
The conflict in Ukraine is often seen in a global perspective: geopolitical spheres seem to compete again, often with reference to cold war rhetoric. On the ground the conflict has another dimension: clashing collective memories resulting in seemingly different cultural identities. Panellists will try to deconstruct cultural reference points that form the basis of the conflict and talk about what would be needed to construct new, inclusive narratives.
