"Never Again: Art against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries"
Never Again was an interdisciplinary conference of two parts - "Art Against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries" on October 24th, 2019, and "Internationalism After the End of Globalization" on October 25th and 26th, 2019.
This event took its name from the concurrent exhibition "Never Again: Art against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries", which was organised in cooperation within the EU programme Our Many Europes and L’internationale coalition of European museums, to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War.
The first two days of this event hosted conference papers from European museum directors, academics, and practice-based researchers. The third day manifested in an assembly of participatory working groups that brought together cultural producers from across Europe to propose, develop, and network practical forms of resistance.
The polyphonic composition of the below presented report stands to acknowledge the range of voices and perspectives that made Never Again a wellspring of new learning and emergent solidarities as it bridged knowledge of fascism, past, and present.
