Over the last six months, participants in the Transcultural Memory course in the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths have been exploring the intersections of the politics of memory, philosophy, psychoanalysis, race and colonialism.
This event will examine the temporality of remembering and forgetting (rewinding and fast-forwarding) through audio visual art practices, particularly in relation to migration. Freud’s’ writing and case studies will serve as the starting point to analyse the current political framework of the immigration crisis and the trauma of belonging.
Artworks are perhaps the best instruments to help us understand the journey of the migrant, its traumatic departures and the uncertainty of arrival. Tapes from the Freud Museum will explore the idea of memory and forgetting through film installations, soundtracks, archival materials and psychoanalytic concepts developed by Sigmund Freud.
Join us for an effective and non-spatial journey through time.
