International symposium “Prisms of Silence” in Tallinn

February 21, 2020 - February 22, 2020

On 21–22 February 2020 the symposium “Prisms of Silence” was held at the Estonian Art Academy in Tallinn. The event brought together artists, curators, art historians and literary and theatre scholars from different countries who sought to rethink the silences about WWII, its aftermath and the Soviet era, and reflected on the present social change that evolves from it. The symposium was part of the project “Communicating Difficult Pasts” (2018–2020), which is held in collaboration between the Institute of Art History and Visual Culture at the Estonian Academy of Arts and the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art and is curated by Margaret Tali and Ieva Astahovska.

The project “Communicating Difficult Pasts” will continue with an exhibition “Difficult Pasts. Connected Worlds” at the Latvian National Museum of Art in April.
