Abstract

TRACES is a three year research project funded in 2016 by the EuropeanCommission within the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme.Through an innovative research methodology based on an experimental indepthartistic/ethnographic approach, TRACES focuses on the challenges andopportunities inherent in transmitting contentious cultural heritages incontemporary Europe. Involving a multi-disciplinary team, which bringstogether established and emerging scholars, artists and cultural workers,TRACES develops rigorous and creative investigations on a range ofcontentious cultural heritages. To do so, it sets up a series of art-basedresearch actions supported and complemented by theoretical investigations,in order to eventually identify new directions for cultural institutions andmuseums, to effectively transmit contentious cultural heritage andproductively contribute to evolving European identities.The project Transforming Maze / Long Kesh (Krenn & O'Beirn) was presented (by O’Beirn) at Queens University’s Belfast, Festival of Conflict Transformation, an International Conference that addressed the social and political issues presented by the Irish Border and cultural responses to those issues
