The exhibition AS MUCH ABOUT FORGETTING has the tensions of history and memory at its core. The participating artists use installations, sculptures, videos, large-scale backlit vinyl and performances to re-call, reclaim and re-enact our past as imperfect. Some works draw upon the intangible, unstable and unofficial while others embrace archives and artefacts.

At the same time, the exhibition itself is an unfolding process, where the audience is given the opportunity to experience and participate in the experiments of contemporary art. Alongside the exhibition there will be a sequence of events: workshops, performances and a symposium. For more details check the Viborg Kunsthal calendar.
