Forget deals with one of the most interesting layers of memory: forgetfulness. Forgetfulness is largely considered as an opposite of remembering. We cannot recollect large amounts of lived times, remembered moments form only tiny part of our lives. But even those parts we can recall, could be recalled falsely, because even a clear memory can include unconscious forgetfulness, or it can function as a variation or mixture of lost and recalled episodes. However, forgetting can also be seen as a part of remembering – only something that is forgotten allows memories to come forth. Forgettable is making room for memorable, creating it.
Therefore, we invite you to share your forgetting – the same way people share their memories. Many forgotten events may suddenly rise from the inner oblivion, at least partly. We are kindly asking you to share your stories about those moments or occasions, which caused something forgotten to spring back. We would gladly draw some inspiration from those cases – in order to continue with our oeuvre of forgetfulness.
