CRIC Research Project

Recent conflicts in Europe, as well as abroad, have brought the deliberate destruction of the heritage of others, as a means of inflicting pain, to the foreground. With this has come the realisation that the processes involved and thus the long-term consequences are poorly understood. Heritage reconstruction is not merely a matter of design and resources – at stake is the re-visioning and reconstruction of people’s identities! This project has investigated the ways the destruction and subsequent selective reconstruction of cultural heritage impact on the way societies recover from war. With case studies in 5 European countries, the films presented by CRIC researchers give an introduction to research considering the following questions: What conditions and ideologies inspire the destruction of cultural heritage and what is selected for destruction? What are the consequences at local, national and regional levels of such destruction and the subsequent reconstruction of parts of people’s heritage?
