Between Private and Public
Workshop by Péter Forgács
Péter Forgács. Hidden Histories
Tuesday, 12 October – 3.30 PM  | Sala Refettorio, Istituto Storico Parri – Bologna
live and online 

An afternoon with Péter Forgács to deepen with him his more than thirty years of artistic work of recontextualizing private footage for his films and installations. How did this artistic path originate and how does a private archive lend itself to reflection on memory? How to interrogate these images today? How to transfigure them from a private and intimate dimension to a public and collective dimension? Which alternate history is possible? To what extent can the filmmaker himself consider himself in a certain way an anthropologist or a historian? Forgács will be asked to answer these questions and to talk about films and installations of such great impact.
