Building Memories: The Art of Remembering
31 May 2013 - 24 February 2014
Room 85, Library Landing
This display offers alternative ways of understanding the “art of remembering”, explored by Hari Kunzru in his narrative for Sky Arts Ignition: Memory Palace. It features historical mnemonic approaches to developing memory skills: from classical texts (printed in the European Renaissance) to Victorian manuals and card games, and also presents contemporary visual interpretations of home – an emotionally resonant space where you may mentally store what you want to recall.
