On September 11, 2001, the old world ended. The tragedy of the twin towers has changed the lives of thousands of people forever. It has created a real break in history, which for eighteen years has been trying to bring the world together.
History breaks have happened before - humanity has the experience of scarring such wounds. But no previous experience will lessen the horror we've experienced. Before the trauma of September 11, a hand had yet to file - several stitches had to be applied. At the lecture we will try to see how it works out.
- What should not be expected -
It will not be about the causes, events and conspiracy theories. And not even the prophecies of the French philosopher-postmodernist Jacques Baudrillard about the fall of the twin towers. It will be about memory, the ability to remember and talk about what happened.
The ability to remember speaks more about who remembers, not what they remember.
