Last November, in Timisoara and Bucharest, Nicolas de Ribou followed a research that aims at studying how visual artists involve their own practice working politically on the notion of memory in regards with the purpose, the fonction, the presence, the reassignment, the replacement and the reinvention of memorials and more widely monuments erected in the context of dictatorial regimes, authoritarian rules, colonial and slavery apparatus.
PROTECT ME FROM WHAT I WANT is the first event organized following his residency, aiming at introducing and screening video works by Romanian artists that deals with the writing of History, the storytelling and the fictions used to question the past and its consequences.
