Riga, 24.-25.11.2016

Baltic-German University Liaison Office in cooperation with the Tallinn University of Technology Tradition, convention and memory continue through artistic translation, nevertheless and critically ‚transformed’ by the perspective of the viewer.

„As if not any insight would set the frozen things in motion, thus becoming aware of the history
in them.” (Theodor W. Adorno, Negative Dialektik. 1966).

Experts of architecture, sociology, art history, communication theory, politics and urban design will discuss experiences and contemporary concepts about young or political built heritage of the 19th and 20th century as part of an interdisciplinary European Dialogue. In continuation of the first colloquium in Tallinn in May 2016, the topic will be discussed in a Baltic frame with experts of Estonia, Latvia and Germany.

Key focus How to maintain and transform difficult (young or political) built heritage to unfold vivid places of multifaceted architectural design, of materialized culture layering history with respect? How to enable collective memory in the contemporary re-programming of the sites? How to convey to meaning, relevance and subtlety of continuity consecrated in the materiality of cities to the ever-diverse audiences?
