Aims & objectives

In „Democracy : Dictatorship”, we examined the legacy of parliamentary democracies and authoritarian ideas of the twenties. We took a close look at how these developments influence national collective memories, European discourse and public spaces to the day.
The workshop took a closer look at the diversity of political movements in different countries that sprouted in 1918 and analysed how they are related to current phenomena. The participants created a multivocal and mobile installation – an interactive map, based on source materials from the countries of participants, „revived” with multiple voices and storytelling.
