The 2023 annual exhibition of C-LAB, Memory Palace in Ruins, explores the historical memories in dislocated time and space from the perspective of mediums, with the intersecting themes of “textualized history” and “materialized memories” to interrogate how historical memories remain in the contemporary life. The exhibition focuses on the past events as well as what afterwards happened to the historical moments, and how they were reinterpreted and reutilized, turning into cultural memories in another form.
Joining the guided tours led by the curator is a great way to get to know the exhibition in more detail and brings people together for close looking and conversations focused on the exhibits. Two guided tours will be hold during the exhibition. Times and venue are listed below.
