On the occasion of this year's World Day for Audiovisual Heritage we are excited to announce a new thematic collection on EFG focusing on reconstruction efforts after WWII in Europe, particularly in the Czech Republic, France, Germany and Italy. This collection is one of the results of the EU-funded research project "VICTOR-E: Visual Culture of Trauma, Obliteration and Reconstruction in Post-WW II Europe".
The international research project "VICTOR-E - Visual Culture of Trauma, Obliteration and Reconstruction in Post-WW II Europe" that explores how audiovisual representations of public spaces – and particularly the documentation of war damage and of reconstruction efforts –, shaped the politics, policies and polities of post-WW II Europe, will hold its final conference "The Reconstruction of Post-World-War II Europe through the Visual Arts" from 20 - 22 April 2022 in Paris. The Call for papers is out now.
