Every Sunday afternoon, you can join a 15-minute introductory lecture on the exhibition In the Presence of Absence and hear about the stories the participating artists are telling us. This short lecture provides insight into the central theme of the exhibition and highlights several works by participating artists. Afterward, you can see the real works in the exhibition.

In the Presence of Absence shows a selection of artworks and design projects that challenge the idea of collective knowledge and public consciousness through stories that remain unseen, have been ignored, or maybe told more often within large public institutions. When not addressed by organizations such as schools, libraries, archives, and museums, the absence of these stories forms knowledge gaps within the public debates that shape our collective consciousness and memory.
