Project Description

Human Times aims to present new understandings about the relationships between human nature and modern European history through the lens of art

Our multidisciplinary project focuses on new researches and understandings about the relationships between aspects of human nature that resulted in the rise of totalitarianism, the ways that individuals preserved their human dignity and the influence of this period on contemporary European society. Co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme.

Using creative actions and documentary approach, the project aims to commemorate the victims of totalitarian regimes and to open up discussion about what happens when intolerance takes over, and most of all, honor the strength of nations to get through the repressions and build a democratic and peaceful Europe, what we know it today.
