Sarajevo, soliter

I have learned to stay silent and to listen

…A preponderance of history per square meter in other countries makes it a haven for tourists, but here it is only a guarantee of the presence of death, or at least it has been up till now.

Exhibition “War of Memories”, Bosnian Cultural Centre of the Tuzla Canton, 21 February – 4 March 2017

Although we hear from various sources that reconciliation is impossible and that there is no readiness for dealing with the past, the exhibition “War of Memories” organised by the Centre for Nonviolent Action (Sarajevo-Belgrade) tells a different story.

The Paths of Wartime Suffering

…We marked unmarked sites of suffering with stickers that read: “UNMARKED SITE OF SUFFERING – At this site, during the war, human beings were subjected to inhumane acts. By not letting these events be forgotten, we stand in solidarity with all victims. May it never happen again to anyone.” Western BiH, Autumn 2016.
