As part of the project “TESTIMONY – TRUTH OR POLITICS: The Concept of Testimony in the Commemoration of the Yugoslav Wars”, in addition to the exhibition, the conference “Testimony. Poetry. Language” will also be held at the Centre for Cultural Decontamination and at the Institute for Philosophy and Social Studies from 14th to 17th December 2017.
The basis of the project “TESTIMONY – TRUTH OR POLITICS: The Concept of Testimony in the Commemoration of the Yugoslav Wars” is made from an audio archive of over 200 interviews conducted with participants in the war and anti-war activists. The project develops in two intertwined research trajectories which address the concept of testimony in the context of commemorative practices and the Yugoslavian wars of the 1990s, and is founded on the interviews and artistic works which deal with these interviews as testimony. In October of last year a call to artists to participate in this project was issued. The artists have been invited to research, on the one hand the material aspects of testimonies (sound and voice) and on the other, the content itself – the political, economic, social and cultural context in the various key moments of testimony. The exhibition of the works of 15 artists and artist pairs strives to increase the production of knowledge capital, spreading the reality of the facts about the wars – about their participants, causes and consequences through the gathering of testimonies from the direct participants in the war and anti-war activists.
