CatenArt Workshop "Roots', Berlin, 17-27 July 2017
“We can be sure only of our past…” – Erich Fromm
“…And a man returned to the city where everything was as in his native city but till the end of his life he would miss the first one…” – The Eastern parable
After the mankind resolved the problem of production, having gone through its industry revolutions, it has taken up the technologies. The technologies development has cardinally energized the perception of time. And now we are moving forward rapidly, but it seems that our future is flying toward us. Isn’t it worth to use this opportunity and let the stream of the future come through ourselves and for a while turn our sight toward the past? The memory, a genetic and a family one, can serve as the best tool for this. It’s a kind of a test how far we can dive into our own history and predict possible traits of the future.
During 10 days in Berlin the workshop participants had a chance to use tools for creating video, photo as well as their workpieces in their own technique on the topic of the memory, past, their personal story.
