The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live – and the way we think. The sense of disruption it provoked has also served as a platform for reflection and dialogue. Conversations in the Time of Corona: Live will explore the broad impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and discuss the many cultural and political issues that have arisen during these difficult times.

More than a year after recording the online dialogues in the Foundation for Art & Psychoanalysis' Oral History Collection video series Conversations in the Time of Corona, curator Fedja Klikovac meets again artists Zineb Sedira and Richard Wentworth – this time in person and in front of a live audience. They will be joined by Dan Hicks, Professor of Contemporary Archaeology at the University of Oxford, Curator at the Pitt Rivers Museum, and a Fellow of St Cross College, Oxford. The event will also have virtual participations by representatives of art institutions in the Middle East: Dr Adila Laïdi-Hanieh, Director General of the Palestinian Museum, and Heba Hage-Felder, Director of Beirut’s Arab Image Foundation.

In line with the project’s broader mission to actively support a dialogue between East and West, the pandemic’s repercussions in different geopolitical circumstances will be addressed. Topics of conversation will include approaches to collective memory, the future of museums, and our role in the production of cultural heritage.

A commentary by HE Hassan AL Balawi, First Counsellor at the Mission of the State of Palestine to the EU, Belgium and Luxembourg, will open the floor to audience questions.
