The title of the exhibition taken from Jose Esteban’s and Stuart Hall’s idea of using archive material to explore the complexities of ancestral histories, this exhibition is an attempt to explore how the public’s collective memory is controlled and shaped by institutions that as legacies of colonialism, have authority over how the past is remembered and commemorated.
