Congres met Oost-Europese studies UvA, Russische en Slavische studies UvA, Hermitage Amsterdam, International Institute for Social History, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies (NIOD) en Raam op Rusland.

In 1917 deed de Russische revolutie de wereld wankelen. De ontwikkelingen die zich toen ontvouwden hadden een fundamentele invloed op de politieke en sociale geschiedenis van de twintigste eeuw. Het Rusland van de revolutietijd was een gamechanger, zowel geopolitiek als artistiek.

We were deeply saddened to learn that Heiner Becker, one of the world’s foremost experts in the history of anarchism, died from the results of a stroke on April 4, 2017, at the age of 65. He was a thoroughly dedicated collector, researcher, editor and publisher in the field, whose deep knowledge was only matched by his uncompromising quality standards.

Rethinking Museums Politically: Berlin's Altes Museum, Museum Island and the (reconstructed) City Palace

Social and Labour History News - Tue, 2017-04-11 10:05


Since its opening in 1830, Karl Friedrich Schinkel's Altes Museum has been located in Berlin's highly symbolic centre, defined by the royal City Palace, Cathedral and Armory. While the museum's performative architecture responds to its location, the current curatorial concept and display no longer reflect the original museological significance of the building.

The contemporary documentation has been in some way, even if not a deliberate one, a part of memory institutions from their origins. In the Czechoslovak context a deliberately created image of the present intended for the future generations became a program in the communist period, the main purpose being the documentation of the socialism building and thelegitimization of the regime. At that time, the contemporary documentation also became a subject of scientific research.

Behind the Mask: Artists in the DDR

Social and Labour History News - Tue, 2017-04-11 08:59


In der DDR gab es eine offizielle Staatskunst; sie sollte politisch wirken. Diese ideologischen Verflechtungen wurden in den vergangenen Jahren in zahlreichen Ausstellungen untersucht. Wie aber reflektierten die Künstler im kritischen Blick nach innen ihr Selbstverständnis und ihr Verhältnis zur vorgeschriebenen staatstragenden Funktion? Die Ausstellung "Hinter der Maske. Künstler in der DDR" widmet sich den Spielarten künstlerischer Selbstinszenierung in der DDR zwischen Rollenbild und Rückzug, verordnetem Kollektivismus und schöpferischer Individualität.
