No one/ bears witness for the/ witness

Borrowing from Paul Celan’s famous poem Ashglory -“No one/ bears witness for the/ witness.” on the one hand and from the prevalent use of testimony in many disciplines on the other, this workshop questions the way testimonies are collected by having participants create questionnaires regarding historical events that interest them addressing the participants of these events. 
The workshop is built on the experience gained in the projects Naming IT war and Testimony – Truth or politics: the concept of testimony in the commemoration of the Yugoslav wars in which over 200 interviews were conducted with war participants and anti war activists. 
(workshop in English)
