DESCRIPTION

Gert Jan Kocken’s work is an ongoing research into the remembrance and visual representation of pivotal episodes in world history. When these episodes are committed to our collective memory, they form intricate constellations of facts, interpretations, opinions and visual impressions. This process of memorization is influenced by official chronicles and mass media, which offer clear-cut accounts of inherently ambiguous events. Kocken critically engages with these accounts, and offers multiple viewpoints that encourage the contemplation of alternative readings and counterfactual histories.
