“The Archaeology of Pain” is a one year research project with the collaboration of volunteered archaeologists and ethno-archaeology students whom try to discover new forms of behavioral patterns and conditions of life in this region, free from all propaganda.
We are asking you, our fellow Syrians all over the world and anyone with the passion for this cause, to share with us your concerns about the devastating and irreversible consequences of the on-going war on Syria’s natural, man-made and/or human heritage.
This small project covers a series of Podcasts depicting the rich and yet virtual stories of the cities of the Orients through narration of a dream-like story-telling gift of Italo Calvino in his fascinating book the ‘Invisible Cities’!
This project orients itself towards the engagement as well as education of school pupils and at some point university students in Berlin-Brandenburg in order to find and acquire a better understanding of the cultural heritage in the countries of the so-called Orient in the broader concept of Global Learning (Globales Lernen).
The project aims at working with each city’s collective memory, in order to store, to express and share them, and in so doing everyone can in their own way interact with them. Cities have always been storehouses for our shared memories and act as our sources of daily inspiration and motivation.
