Raycho Stanev, Sandra Hall: The Great Excursion  

The starting point for discussion is the interactive installation about the memories of Bulgarian Turks, hundreds of thousands of who were expelled from Bulgaria in 1989. A hidden chapter of European history, almost unknown in West Europe, it is a reminder of what happens when DNA, rather than our shared humanity, is the focus of attention. The Great Excursion is an interactive media exhibit examining a period in recent Bulgarian history when over 400,000 Bulgarian Turks were expelled from the country during what the government called an ‘excursion’ – which normally means you can return – but not in this case. 23 October / 15:00-16:30
