The past and post-scarcity data overload present challenges in terms of defining the right to be forgotten and implications on human need for community and to be remembered in the digital age. The preservation of memories and their accessibility allow their tracing, interpretation, narrativization and circulation. There is an accountability implied in such processes and indicate what is valued at a particular period in time. Mr Ricky Orellana, Secretary General of the Southeast Asia-Pacific Audiovisual Archives Association (SEAPAVAA) and Dr Jocelyn Martin of the Advisory Board of Memory Studies Association will be in conversation on this topic.
The talk is free and open to the public as part of MCAD Manila’s programs for its current exhibition, Flatlands.
