Project Description

Project Period: 01 Feb 2021 - 31 Jul 2022

Human Times is a multidisciplinary project that aims at presenting new researches and understandings about the relationships between aspects of the human nature that resulted in the rise of totalitarianism, the ways that individuals preserved their human dignity and the influence of this period on the contemporary European society through the lens of art.

Creative actions and documentary approach will be used for bringing citizens together to commemorate the victims of totalitarian regimes and to open up discussion about what happens when intolerance takes over, and most of all, honor the strength of nations to get through the repressions and build a democratic and peaceful Europe, what we know it today.
