Thematic exhibition at Conflictorium

Museum of Conflict, Conflictorium is currently running the thematic ‘Again and Again and Again’ that looks at the “phenomenon of repetition critically”. This thematic “attempts to expose the truest-lies of the systems and power structures by repeating what has been lost, forgotten and erased. Remembrance is that repetition which cannot be erased and forgotten”. And as part of the thematic programming, an exhibition titled ‘Still, we can’t step in the same river twice’ is set to open this Sunday. Organizers reveal that the exhibition attempts to “investigate through the certain day-to-day practices how the certain repetitive practices can be modified, so that we stop chanting for a saviour and chant our rights”. In the coming weeks, the team will be putting together workshops, a film and a zine.

WHEN: Opening: Sunday, 6pm
