Panel: Art as Public History

Part of "To Be Continued." Virtual NCPH Conference 2023

Sasha Gora (Universität Augsburg), Egemen Özbek (Universität Duisburg-Essen), Marissa Petrou (University of Louisana), Fatemeh Rezai (KWI)


About “Art as Public History”
Our panel explores examples of art as public history in the international landscape. Case studies from Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, Armenia, Germany, Switzerland, and the land now known as Canada demonstrate how art can be used in public history of violent or traumatic events, how art can be used to tell marginalized histories, how artists are offering new ways of working with archives and suggesting new/perhaps more effective ways of telling underrepresented or suppressed histories through visual or sculptural media, as well as performance and writing.

About “To Be Continued.”

Join NCPH for “To Be Continued,” a virtual fall conference that will follow up on content from NCPH 2023 (“To Be Determined”) in Atlanta last April and build on that program with brand-new content. If you missed select sessions in Atlanta, or if you couldn’t travel at all, this is your opportunity to network with fellow public historians, catch up on work in the field, and enjoy free (first come, first served) professional development workshops.
