2011 European Forum of History and Arts

The project was focusing on the topic of ‘Forced Migration’ and was moving between the disciplines of history, art and design. Under the patronage of Prof. Dr. Gesine Schwan and Prof. Dr. Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, the idea of the Cross-Border Network was found on a new peak. In the village of Krzyzowa highly capable contemporary witnesses were incorporated in the symbiosis of sciences and art. In both the practical and theoretical scientific monitoring of the forums a great potential of innovation was found. Here a naturally triggered correlation between scientific discourses and artistic creativity emerged across nationalities.
