Reconciliations: The Evidence  of the Visible

Reconciliations: The Evidence of the Visible is one of an ongoing series of  exhibitions of art work produced in response to a call to artists to investigate the concept and practice of reconciliation, specifically, in this case, in relation to the Siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica massacre of July 1995. This exhibition explores how visual evidence of past crimes can play a role in post conflict remembrance, reconciliation and rebuilding. A fundamental question for art is how it should relate to and engage with the broader social, political and economic climate of the times, and how far the artist should concern themselves with the world they inhabit. These questions are particularly troubling in those parts of the world that have endured the scars of war, where artists and arts organisations have to deal with the complex and problematic issue of whether the past should be remembered and commemorated, or whether such attention is actually counterproductive in imagining how in the future further conflicts might be prevented. curated by Dr Paul Lowe
