Migrating Images and Image Migration: How Popular Culture Shapes the Visual History of the Holocaust
This international conference explores ways of inquiring, searching and curating historical images in film, video art and digital environments.
Our memory of historical events, especially the Holocaust, is significantly shaped by films and other visual content. The conference explores the impact of historical film footage and photographs from Nazi atrocities on popular culture representations of the Holocaust, particularly on films, graphic novels, artworks, video games, and digital media. Artists, directors, creators, and producers from the local and international creative industries join scholars and researchers to discuss artistic methods of integrating, referencing, appropriating and curating liberation- and other Holocaust-related images and their effect on the memory of the Holocaust.
The conference is hosted by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in cooperation with the Jerusalem Cinematheque, the Center for Austrian Studies at the European Forum and the Cardinal Franz König Chair in Austrian Studies and organized within the framework of the 4-year EU Horizon 2020 project “Visual History of the Holocaust. Rethinking Curation in the Digital Age”, (https://www.vhh-project.eu), which started in 2019.
