Come and Forget, at the Oslo Architecture Triennale

CCA elsewhere, in English, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, 28 September, 8pm

Join us at the Oslo Architecture Triennale for five toasts to acts of mass, benevolent amnesia, with special guests.

Individuals act as their own historians, suppressing some stories and emphasizing others. But at the scale of nations and cultures, and especially in an age of ubiquitous digital memory, it has become more difficult to forget and more important to challenge what we do remember. Reflecting on history and its uses, and questioning the responsibilities of the research museum, the CCA launched a series of proposed acts of mass, benevolent amnesia: precise and universal erasures of a place, person, object, or idea from our collective memory. What forces might be let loose, and what new ideas could emerge from fruitful forgetting? Over nearly two years, Evgeny Morozov, Craig Hodgetts, Johannes Grenzfurthner, Chus Martinez, and Sophia Roosth responded.

Participants include Mirko Zardini, CCA Director; Phineas Harper, Curator, Olso Architecture Triennale 2019; Lev Bratishenko, CCA Curator, Public; Dubravka Sekulić, architect; and others.
