Which current conditions enable or make it impossible that art/institutions/history writing/s have histories of witnesses of that time in one place and not in another? How to refer to ones own contribution to the production of practises of suppression and lacking dynamics of dealing with the past if it is also the one which is regulating the becoming of the voids of prevalent politics of visibilities at the same time?

Perhaps by continuous consensual interacting with survivors, open questions and images of the collective memory, which became established on a media level? By translating, transforming and re-staging the involvement that far that it leads to new negotiations?
