Cultural Exchange - Macromedia Professor Presented at German Parliament

Macromedia professor Dr. Gernot Wolfram spoke to International Parliamentary Scholarships’ holders about "Cultures of Remembrance". The key lecture was held at German Parliament in Paul-Löbe-Haus.

In cooperation with the Federal Agency for Civic Education/bpb in Berlin, Prof. Dr. Gernot Wolfram has been researching questions on cultural exchange, cultural education and sustainable media education since years. Recently, he spoke to International Parliamentary Scholarships’ holders about "Cultures of Remembrance". His approach especially focusses on the aspect of activating recipients.

Digitisation: Wolfram demands polyphony for cultures of remembrance

In the context of remembrance and the handling of German history, Prof. Wolfram emphasised that polyphony, conversation and dialogue should rule the perception in times of digitisation. The era of centralised remembrance of historical monuments would not comply with a decentralised exchange of multiple opinions anymore.

"Remembrance needs conversation and active discussion; frontal conveyance doesn’t lead to the fact that knowledge and sensitivity towards events are anchored in consciousness", the scientists stated. Wolfram demonstrated with multiple examples that media and cultural artifacts stimulate these activities within the critical work of preserving memories. At the end of his lecture, scholarship holders were invited to address their questions.
