Zuzanna Hertzberg, Ph.D. (Warsaw): Recovering Nomadic Memory of the Ignitions of the Revolution as a Spark for Embodiment of Utopia Today

Grafik zur Veranstaltung, © IZfG

Revolutionary acts bear affinity to the resistance of water. These are the ignitions that, even when thwarted, migrate under the surface. This nomadism of ideas breaks through and creates floodplains of the struggles for radical social equality. In her talk, interdisciplinary artist, artivist, and researcher Zuzanna Hertzberg attempts to elaborate on this idea while talking about her artistic practice: recovering herstories of women anarchists from the beginning of the 20st century. But in this lecture, she will mainly focus on International Brigades and antifascists. Hertzberg will present them in the frame of historical politics in the post-communist region, showing how this revolutionary memory migrates like a rhizome and how it creates the beginning of a new story.
