The conference 'Technologies of Memory in the Arts' focuses on art as a
cultural and technological practice to process and construct the past in
the present. Central questions to this conference are: How do art and
artistic practices function as technologies of memory? How are cultural
artefacts implicated in complex processes of remembering and forgetting, of
recollecting and disremembering, of amnesia and anamnesia?

Nobby's story has its roots way back. It's part of a bigger
historical picture and a longer story of hardship passed down from
