    How to Remember, How to Forget? Post-Soviet Museum Practicies around the Baltic Sea

    Open symposium on the themes of the soon concluded research project Art, Culture, Conflict: Transformations of Museums and Memory Culture in the Baltic Sea Region after 1989, with Dan Karlholm, Annika Öhrner och Johan Hegardt.

    The occasion for this event is the conclusion of the research project “Art, culture, conflict: transformations of museums, exhibition spaces and memory culture in the Baltic Sea region after 1989” (sponsored by The Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies), which has aimed to map, analyze and interpret transformations of exhibitions of culture and art at museum institutions, art spaces and memorials around the Baltic Sea from 1989 until today. Key questions have included how discursive narrative structures about the nation, its culture, history and identity were changed ideologically and in terms of communication and mediation. Based on the critical discussion regarding international, transnational, Nordic, Baltic, European and global identities we inquire into the role played by art in historical museums, on cultural sites as well as in art spaces proper. We have tried to discover new structures, connections and patterns within this region that will enable us to reflect upon a number of the exhibitions covered. The material derives from countries within the former Soviet Union (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and two Western nations (Finland and Sweden).

    As the title of the conference discloses, the emphasis is on the actual changes in direction, in theory or in practice, literally or materially, of the museums and other exhibition spaces for culture, history and art from the years around the independence of the Baltic States until the present, when so much new work and museum reconstructions is going on. Of interest as well is how this new territory, literally and metaphorically, was dealt with (or not) across the Baltic Sea, in the neighboring countries of Finland and Sweden.
