“The truth of time, the truth of commemoration”, or free reflection on historical performances in the local public sphere
The 100th anniversary of Bydgoszcz’s return to the Polish borders allows us to deal again with the theory and practice of performances or public actions referring to local history. How is the past told in various places around the world? What means of presentation do we use in our city? Are reconstructions the only way to modernize the historical narrative?
Adam Gajewski — curator of Local Heritage at the Municipal Culture Centre in Bydgoszcz, author of films, TV programs and historical publications.
