EVERYTHING PASSES EXCEPT THE PAST - Digital Festival

EVERYTHING PASSES EXCEPT THE PAST is a digital festival taking place on October 17: Alongside a keynote contribution from Bénédicte Savoy, round-table talks with activists, artists, experts, curators and researchers from Africa, Latin America and Europe will take place. The debates will discuss the challenge to decolonize museum collections, public space and film archives in order to bring views from the Global North and the Global South into intensive dialogue. Besides, the presentations focus on the question how we could learn from the methodologies of art, critical theory, and activism to provoke politicisation and critical metamorphosis.

The festival is part of the Goethe-Institut’s 2-year long international project “Everything Passes Except The Past” which organised various workshops and events in Belgium, France, Portugal and Spain in 2019. Many of the participating artists and experts present works and statements that have been developed during this research period.
