Curatorial practices & historical narratives | panel discussion
The panel discussion will reflect on methodologies when curating complex, unresolved and difficult histories within both the local and national contemporary art scene.

Vessela Nozharova with her expertise on contemporary Bulgarian art will discuss her methods of working with artists, spaces and curatorial experience in regards to the memory and trauma of the communist regime. Bonita Bennett, the former director of the District Six Museum, will share her experience of leading the museum, and working with the narratives of people who had been forcibly removed from various areas in Cape Town, South Africa. Petrică Mogoș & Laura Naum, the founders of Kajet Journal, will share their encounters with the difficult histories, unresolved and hidden stories of Eastern Europe belonging both to the past and present, which they curate in a physical and online platform.

This panel is a part of the online programme of the project History in Between. History in Between (Project for interventions in the Museum, Sofia) is a collaboration between the Art Affairs and Documents Foundation, and the Regional History Museum of Sofia; and it is supported by the Calendar of Cultural Events of Sofia City.
