This project addresses a number of questions dealing with the complex interrelationship between technology, specific user generations and spaces or places of cultural memory production in home movie making and screening. More concretely we are interested in the question how changing technologies of cultural production (film, video or digital camera) have shaped new practices and rituals of memory staging (screening of the films in domestic of public venues) and thereby initiated processes of (re)negotiating user generations and group identities.
This research project is supported by the Netherlands Institute for Scientific Research (NWO) for the period 2012-2015. It exists a collaboration between Maastricht University, University of Groningen en the University of Luxembourg.
