Pièce de Résistance

How do we remember and relate the protests on Cairo’s Tahrir Square? Which objects trigger memories of the February Strike in Amsterdam? What do the stories circulating about Nelson Mandela’s ANC tell us? And what about our own Nieuwmarkt riots? How do we write and remember history? Mediamatic and Partizan Publik created a marketplace, workshop and exhibition space for personal stories and objects of resistance. You could become a researcher yourself and contribute to the expanding archive of stories and objects. Participating artists were Abner Preis, Sissel Tolaas, Mike Ballard, Saron Paz, Guy Königstein, Michael Haas, Julius von Bismarck, Moataz Nasreldin, Ghalia Elsrakbi and Roger Cremers
