“Contemporary art in public space and collective memory”: Third Session Cátedra UIS-CAPAZ
The inauguration for the third part of the Peace, Coexistence, and Citizenship course run at Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS) will take place on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at the UIS facilities in Bucaramanga (Agora Auditorium of the Faculty of Human Sciences).
This part of the course is called «Contemporary art in public space and collective memory», and it will focus on monuments as representation and transformation of the imaginary in the elaboration of new memories and in the representation of the past, without memory being reduced to a social inscription and symbolic construction.
Assistant Professor at the Department of Art, Universidad de los Andes, Edgar Guzmanruiz, and Professor at Universidad Pedagógica Nacional, Fabio Castro Bueno will be the guest speakers.
The course will run from 27 September to 13 December 2019. The course is a CAPA-supported initiative implemented by UIS, specifically the Academic Vice-Chancellor’s Office, the School of Economics and Administration and the Oral Archive of Memory of Victims (AMOVI). UIS is one of the associate members of the CAPAZ Institute.
