eCommemoration

In an ever more closely connected world, information and ideas flow freely, forging a sense of global community and enabling a public discourse that transcends hereditary borders. Yet when dealing with history, national echo chambers still define the discussion.
With its eCommemoration programme, Körber-Stiftung aims at facilitating a new understanding of remembrance, linking people and praxis across national and societal, disciplinary and generational divides. Harnessing the transformative dynamic of digitalisation in Gaming, Social Media and within Hybrid Spaces, the programme encourages innovative approaches to history and memory and opens new perspectives on creative and participatory commemoration.

eCommemoration Convention

The annual eCommemoration Convention opens a space for historians, memory workers, influencers and creative minds to come together. As a platform of exchange, it encourages digital creativity and cultural sensitivity in future endeavours of presenting, debating and understanding Europe’s shared past. In doing so, Körber-Stiftung facilitates the development of standards for a multi-perspective and innovative digital dialogue on history and remembrance.
