Memoryscape is the site of memory which is crystallized and can be defined in the location of cultural practices (Nora, 1989). The practice of collective memory which is shared experiences becoming a social phenomenon (Halbwachs, 1992). Then, sometimes the dynamic of collective memory comes to term as politics when it is reinterpreted, contested, subverted, and supplanted in the communicative process (Maurantonio, 2014). Therefore, memorycapes are also parts of resistances. This panel recollects past experiences with the preliminary notion of memoryscapes as a resistance to the state’s domination of identity and justice.
