BarCamp #ClaimingHeritage in Berlin, 5 October 2019
Our cultural heritage is multi-faceted, diverse and individual. A rich selection of places is protec- ted in order to preserve them and give them a future. But this selection often does not represent the values and interests of all. The terms monument and heritage relate to various aspects of our built environment, but capture unconventional places and concepts often inadequately, just as experts have only a limited insight into value creation processes and social conceptions of the relevance of places and buildings. Techno clubs and ballrooms, skateparks and parklands, virtual and real reconstructions - who determines what is relevant for whom and how it should be handled?
On October 5th 2019, the working group »AG 2020« from ICOMOS Germany is organizing the BarCamp »ClaimingHeritage!«.
A BarCamp is a user-generated conference without preexisting programme. All participants create the course of the event at the beginning of the day.
Under the hashtag #Claiming Heritage, experts as well as interested laymen can suggest topics about the recognition, significance and handling of cultural heritage and discuss them in workshops, talks or round table discussions.
Date: October 5, 2019
Place: Werkstatt der Kulturen, Wissmannstraße 32, 12049 Berlin
Registration: until September 30th via firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is organized in cooperation with the DFG Research Training Group 1913 »Cultural and Technological Significance of Historic Buildings« at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg.
