Event Description : The Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi is delighted to present "Days without a Night" featuring Video, photography, installations and sculpture 

To be able to remember is crucial for humans to be able to survive. And to commemorate is one of the many ways to tell ourselves where we come from and where we want to go. Every remembrance and every commemoration is the invention of a new narrative about what is considered to be the past. 
While historiography claims to reconstruct the truth about the past, the truth may in fact lie in peoples’ emotions and their ways to tell themselves what their past has been.

Trauma is the returning of something one has suffered from as a passive victim, in the form of its re-enactment. It is the experience of something that makes itself heard again and again, while wanting to be forgotten. Trauma produces a subject, in which individual and collective pains coincide. This is what makes trauma a socially, and not only a psychologically relevant phenomenon. Trauma is active, until it is worked through, is integrated and can be forgotten. If it remains active, it becomes coded in the pattern of neurotic compulsive repetition, re-establishing the victim–perpetrator divide again and
again, producing fresh pain so one can forget older pain.
The exhibition Days without a Night brings together a selection of works that address the topic of forgetting and remembering, of trauma and compulsive repetition, of guilt and remorse in different ways. It speaks about traumatized landscapes, scarred idylls, and about the self-infliction of pain, of stolen memories and foreign familiarities, of the process of mourning and reconciliation.
