Lecture: The Conservation of the Memory:The Fake in Heritage Conservation
Date: October 10, Thursday– 12:30
Conservation of the memory is in general related to the idea of heritage, buildings and monuments. Yet we cannot work on the heritage of the built environment, if the concept of the personal, individual memory is not clear. This means that we need to face the problem of the personal, individual heritage, our memories and the way we preserve them.
