TNB Conferences – Cristian Teodorescu: Lost Memory – the National Theatre’s Atelier Hall – 11 am – “The topic of this conference – which is also the theme of the novel ‘Medgidia, orasul de apoi’/ ‘Medgidia, The Town at the End of the World’ – occurred to me after some journeys throughout the country, during which I realized we know nothing or close to nothing about our grandparents’ generation. The spoliation and the annihilation of the middle-class in Romania led not only to the erasure of a world, with all its faults and merits, from collective memory, but also to a rupture between generations and the breakdown of an entire system of values, whose effects we feel to this day in the attempt to recreate a local middle-class”.
