Prof. Alona Nitzan-Shiftan: UN-SILENCING THE PAST

DOCUMENTATION AND PEDAGOGY BEYOND THE WORLD HERITAGE LIST

24/11/2021
16:00 - 18:00
ZOOM

WEBINAR within the framework of THE OURWORLDHERITAGE INITIATIVE
This session explores alternative methods of raising awareness to global heritage. The current listing procedures are caught in the politics of nation-states and reflect their power to canonize heritage. We seek instead an active engine that perpetually identifies meaningful sites for people around the world. This session turns to architectural pedagogy and new areas and modes of documentation to seek knowledge that goes beyond the boundaries of the state and constantly challenge and expand the list of heritage sites, and consequently, the histories they conjure.

We aim focusing on the acts of observing, inquiring, and networking that are necessary to identify sites that are constituted as historical resources, that are recognized as carrying attributes that amount to cultural heritage. The session raises questions about the potential of innovative documentation techniques and global histories networks to constantly identify new inventory of sites that escape institutional attention as a result of neglect, conflict, poverty and racism.
