Launch of UCL’s digital exhibition ‘Compromised Identities?’

Invitation to public launch of UCL’s digital exhibition ‘Compromised Identities? Reflections on Perpetration and Complicity under Nazism’ on 15 October 2020, 5-6:30pm BST / 18.00-19.30 CEST.

The exhibition explores how perpetration and complicity are represented and understood both at the time and later. It examines direct and indirect involvement in violence, everyday practices of exclusion, and post-war confrontations with the past. While focussing on experiences under Nazism and attempts to address its legacies across the post-war era, the project remains all too relevant to questions of racism and collective violence today.

The site features rare archival sources, an interactive map, and audio-visual materials. It is home to thirty short films created by UCL researchers, exploring historical developments and the challenges involved in representing perpetration and complicity.

We would like to invite you to the launch event hosted on Zoom. Featuring project research team members Professor Mary Fulbrook, Professor Stephanie Bird, Dr Stefanie Rauch, Dr Christoph Thonfeld, and Dr Bastiaan Willems, this event will be an opportunity to discover more about the key ideas and collaborative research which have inspired this new exhibition.

The webinar will take place from 5:00-6:30pm BST on Thursday, 15 October 2020. Please register here for free tickets.
