The 'Comparative History' project pursues several  trajectories, not necessarily focusing on chronological history of  events, but rather highlighting generational specifics in modes of  remembrance. In every country a change of scene is occuring in regard to the way younger generation relates to history. Less concerned with forming a concept of history and displaying a seemingly unproblematic integration of the past, this generation explores its conflicts and correspondences while engaging the present moment. Restaging these encounters for the contemporary public, we would like to engage the political dimension and perform 'critical history,' which is making the past useful for the present day.
