Mementos is a collective exhibition organised by students of the Transcultural Memory module, led by Astrid Schmetterling, part of the MA Contemporary Art Theory programme in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. The sixteen creative projects presented here were conceived in response to a diverse set of academic texts, historical events, artworks, fiction pieces, and films that were discussed over the course of fifteen weeks.
Given the freedom to use any medium and approach to engage with major threads of contemporary memory studies, these projects manifest as poignant examinations of remembrance that diminish the boundaries between personal, abstract, cultural, historical. Ultimately, they affirm that memory is not something to be relegated to the past, but rather that which occurs in the present and with which we can and should actively work through.
Featuring: Silvia Caso, Frida Chen, Eden Girma, Christine Gordon, Josh Grey-Jung, Wooyeon Hwang, Tina Keon, Elena Konyushihina, Julia Kozakiewicz, Agata Łakińska, Hannah Morris, Imara Paterno Castello, Maggie Sava, Sarah Scott, Joohyun Song, Berny Tan
