During this lecture performance the principle of the art of memory used by ancient Romans is illustrated by memorizing a text about mnemonics. For this way of remembering something an imagined architecture is used. Within the architecture one places fictive images that are constructed according to certain rules. By using various metaphors, symbols or even private references, relating to whatever should be remembered, these composed images are produced. "Walking" through this architecture "seeing" these images one would be able to remember the original content of, for example, a speech or a list.
