Museum of Random Memory Working Conference 2018

April 6 – April 8 2018

April 6-8, 2018. Artists, activists, social scientists, architects, and information designers convene for the 2018 Museum of Random Memory Workshop in Skagen, Denmark. The goal? To bring together a unique set of trans disciplinary perspectives on how public, arts-based, research-driven exhibitions can create social change. Using the 3-year old MoRM as a starting point, participants are brainstorming, producing conceptual models, building extensions of the original concept, critically analyzing the methods, and otherwise working creatively to push the project forward.

Day 1: Provocations

Day 2: Production

Day 3: Proposals

This Working Retreat solidifies the project’s commitment of bringing together diverse groups of young and experienced researchers and practitioners to critically examine and publically address the processes of memory-making in the digital and datafied era. This event is sponsored by Aarhus University’s Creating Future Memories project and CAD+SR (Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research).
