KEYNOTE: Marianne Hirsch – Epi-Memory, Art and Action

This talk places new research into epigenetics into conversation with several feminist memory projects from different parts of the globe that each use fabric, skin and touch as media of transmission. It attempts to think about how art can mobilize the memory of violent pasts to foster solidarity and action in the present, and the possibility of transformation in the future.
