Merging contemporary European societies with the experiences of refugees, thus creating a window of opportunity for a shared history.

Shared History is a cross-disciplinary project with the goal of critically connecting and artistically interpreting the different reactions on the refugee situation that are strongly affecting, shaping and dividing the European Union member states on a political and domestic level. With a Baltic scope, the project’s creative research process will approach issues such as policy making, judicial and geographical borders, statistics, identity, public opinion and post-truth information related to migration and integration in Sweden, Poland and Latvia.

This will be investigated through artistic interpretations – created through intertwining established artist in Sweden, Poland and Latvia with artists who recently arrived as refugees – with the goal of investigating and visualizing how experiences of migration and integration are merged into a shared history!

Shared History?

18.00-20.00. Färgfabriken.
Public program, free admission.


How do we develop cultural strategies to encourage a more inclusive historical consciousness based on integration? Shared History* is an art and research project rethinking the chronological way of thinking about History and and how we tend to imagine ”our" and ” their" community. What if we approach history as something that is open to everybody. A historical integration! Is it possible to approach history as a multi-linear process intertwining experiences instead of a single linear mind-set of top down history making. In what ways can we use Shared History as a starting point for artistic processes and collaborations?

The program for the 9th of November opens up our process and calls for dialogue in search for an inclusive future. We would like to share the experiences and challenges we had so far with you, through short presentations and panel discussion, where the audience is invited to react and discuss.

Panel participants:

Agnieszka Wolodzko, artist
Hala Alnaji, architect
Ibrahim Muhana, filmmaker
Reza Hazare, artist
Vanja Sandell Billström, artist and filmmaker

Moderator: Daniel Urey


*Aside from the title of our project, Shared History is a new academic research field in History. Shared history opens up emancipatory and unifying solutions. By problematising history as storytelling, two or more different or even contradictory experiences or perspectives on the same historical phenomenon are merged into meeting and dialogue.
