Open Archives – 5th Conference including “ArchivCamp” @ The Federal Commissioner for the Stasi Records (BStU) Stasi headquarters. Campus for Democracy
Nov 4 – Nov 5 all-day

The opening of the Stasi Records was a unique act following the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 turning the archive into a role model for many post-dictatorial societies. With the enactment of the Stasi Records Act on January 2, 1992, citizens for the first time were able to view their files in order to clarify the influence the Stasi had on their fate. The former Stasi headquarters meanwhile was turned into an educational site addressing issues of dictatorship and resistance, as well as a learning space for democracy. This unique location will be host to the fifth edition of the “Open Archives” conference in Berlin on 4th and 5th of November 2019, on the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution.

Keynotes and lectures

Part of the programme are thought-provoking keynotes and short lectures and a panel discussion on archives, digital and cultural policy on November, 4th :

  • Roland Jahn (Federal Commissioner for the Stasi Records)
  • Gerald Maier (President of the State Archives of Baden-Wuerttemberg)
  • Helene Hahn (Wikimedia Germany)
  • Erhard Grundl (MdB, spokesman for cultural policy of the Alliance90 / The Green party’s parliamentary group)
  • Martin Rabanus (MdB, spokesman for culture and media, SPD parliamentary group)

BarCamp

But the programme has more to offer! A BarCamp allows participants on both days of the conference the opportunity for low-threshold, but also intense discussion. Topics can be contributed spontaneously. Established ways of thinking in the traditional world of archiving can be challenged!

Conference: The art of preserving culture @ Wien
Nov 14 @ 14:30 – Nov 15 @ 16:00

The event is at the same time the closing conference (fourth conference) of the international research initiative ‘En route to a shared identity. Sources on the history of Central Europe in the Digital Age’, led by Adelheid Krah (University of Vienna/AT).The international team, whose members are renowned scholars working at universities and archives in the field of research and teaching in Austria as well as in neighbouring countries of Austria, has existed since 2014 and is explicitly addressing the question of conservation and preservation of culture in the Central European and European area.

As it apparently becomes more difficult, despite the digitization and the opening of borders, to preserve the right of people on culture, cultural networking and the traditionally connecting construction of a shared identity, within this final conference also the study of music as another discipline as well as the dimension of the art of the interpretation of a piece will be included. To the existing co-operations of the working team comes a further collaboration with the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna. We are looking forward to this!

At the conference, next to numerous talks on new topics and issues also two pieces will be presented:

  •  the in the Vandenhoeck&Ruprecht publishers as well as in the Böhlau publishing house issued edited volume of the conference in November 2017 ‘Sources, neighbourhood, community. En route to a shared cultural history of Central Europe’, ed. A. Krah (Wien, Köln, Weimar 2019, 302 p.),
  • the new CD ‘postscriptum B. – Beethoven-Katzer-Kontraste’ with cello sonatas by L. v. Beethoven and G. Katzer (interpreters J.-U. Krah, B. Parz) in a concert at the MKU Vienna at the occasion of the coming Beethoven year.

All contributions of the conference will again be released in an edited form on the blog ‘En route to a shared identity’, link: https://dighist.hypotheses.org/ and published until February 2020 online. At this point, the team will lay down its collaborative work until further notice.
