Conference 2017, Memory Building

ICMEMO, International Committee of Memorial Museums in Memory of Victims of Public Crimes & ICAMT, International Committee of Architecture and Museum Techniques.

 

Cincinnati, Ohio, the "Queen City" in the heart of America offers an unexpectedly apt venue at the crossroads of a complex political time to explore the topic of engaging societies in self-reflective museums. The Underground National Railroad Freedom Center will host the meeting that begins with an examination of American narratives in its national museums, and moves to other themes of interest to ICAMT and ICMEMO members as we hold joint and parallel sessions -including the "Architecture of Memorial Museums on Historical Sites and Off Site", the "Human Rights Struggle and Slavery in Exhibitions throughout the World", creating innovative spaces, and recreating spaces where the narratives used for years are no longer resonant with its current visitors.
