Since the members of »Four Faces of Omarska« have withdrawn the exhibition, it is closed from 18/October.
»The statement issued by the Maxim Gorki Theatre of 14/October 2023 pushed us into the reality ruled by an injunction to accept the world without Palestinians. We, gathered around the exhibition Four Faces of Omarska, state that we cannot speak about Omarska without speaking about Gaza. We therefore withdraw the exhibition and all accompanying programs from the Berliner Herbstsalon.«
Authors of Four Faces of Omarska and participants of the Public Sessions (Damir Arsenijević, Ivana Bago, Abdelrahman Elbashir, Abdelrahman Elbashir, Jasmina Husanović, Nusreta Sivac)
The session raises questions about the history of art practices that have sought to address the trauma of war and economic transition in the post-Yugoslav space. It asks how memory becomes history, and how individual knowledge and traumatic experience catalyze legal formations into international legal paradigms. The guests will discuss the war and the post-Dayton Bosnian state through the paradox of waste as social wealth.
