Connecting Things: Objects and Heritage Constructions (Sixth Annual Conference)

25-26 November 2022, Architekturforum Berlin Narratives that inform heritage references are linked to certain forms of materialisations; among them, artefacts, built structures and places, photographs and other images, texts and oral accounts. What insights can a focus on such ‘things’ yield about present-day references to the past? For example, how ‘things’ come to be considered significant, irrelevant or offensive by certain actors, whether they carry fixed socio-cultural meanings, and what role they play in the formation of new or as yet under-recognised constructs of heritage?
