1968 was an iconic year when people all over the world revolted against authorities. In an exceptional spirit of creativity, imagination and determination they banged on the doors of those in power and asked for change. Fifty years later the values people fought for then are under pressure. In a brand new pop-up museum the Iron Curtain Project connects the past to the present.

Fifty years after the student protest against censorship a special pop-up museum on the spirit of 1968 in Europe is opened in NOWY TEATR. On the occasion of the opening there will be the Big 8 March Media Debate.
Exactly sixty years after the Hungarian Uprising in October 1956, the Iron Curtain Project starts with a traveling pop-up museum about Protest in Europe. It raises the question: what do we Europeans want to fight for?
The museum pops up on: > 5 March - Raad voor het Openbaar Bestuur, presentation essay book on the discontent citizen - De Balie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. > 23-31 March - Moves that Matter Film Festival - The Hague, The Netherlands.
What do you really know about your parents’ past? Could you ask them about it? In October we conducted an interview workshop in Budapest for Hungarian students. We asked them to interview their own parents about the the communist times, to ask them that one question they never dared to ask them before. And, very important, register it on video. Not an easy assignment, but they came up with some spectacular stuff.
