Remembering and forgetting are ever-present features of life. The exhibition playfully reveals the manifold practices people rely on to recall specific moments in life, from birth to death, but also to forget about them. War and peace, colonialism and independence: the exhibits on display show similarities and differences in how significant events in society are passed on by word of mouth, carved in stone, or, as the case may be, never disclosed.
