The year 2012 started off very well. Successfully I finished my Master thesis at the Sandberg Institute and I completed my study with an interesting exhibition at the SMBA in Amsterdam.
At the moment I am enjoying a research scholarship and work on a project in Berlin.
I am researching the culture of remembrance in archives. I focus on two different kind of archives. One archive is preserving historical documents and the other – the Stasi archive – provides individuals with these documents to reprocess their personal pasts. The result will be a paper on that subject.
I am furthermore preparing a lecture to invite other bright minds to speak about these issues. I am planing on presenting the activity in Amsterdam and Berlin. For more detailed information I will keep you updated.
I wish you a good start for 2013 and all the best!
