About Heritage Space Platform
Initiated in 2016 by CHwB Kosovo, Heritage Space (HS) is a platform that engages with the processes of meaning- and value-creation in the field of heritage. HS invites researchers and cultural practitioners to preserve cultural heritage using interdisciplinary approaches such as written research, creative fiction and non-fiction, contemporary art, film-making, digital storytelling and alternative archives.
Deliberately moving away from the view that confines the field of heritage to conventional preservation practices, which often attribute innate and static value to materials and sites, HS attempts to explore how heritage-making is a dynamic and subjective negotiation of historical narratives, collective identity, memory and place. These questions are all the more relevant in the context of Kosovo, where any heritage discourse is underwritten by the complex consequences of war, trauma, colonization and the struggle for recognition.
The experiences around heritage that HS gives focus to are often vulnerable, difficult, transient, invisible or disrupted. Articulating these experiences requires unconventional and experimental tools that have largely been absent in the field. Consequently, HS is highly preoccupied with the question of methodology—how something comes to the fore as heritage is just as important as what.
