This multimedia exhibit features the work of Hariz Halilovich and Adis Elias Fejzić, Bosnian-born scholars and artists who explore the nuances of human rights, migration, and identity in their research and work. Mjesta Bola – Places of Pain (Recognizing the Pain of Others) uses graphics, photographs, text, documents, drawings, sound, and video to explore the lives, deaths, and memories of people who have been displaced by conflict.

Additional Notes

In this exhibition, through a creative fusion of documentary and imaginary representations of social, spatial and affective landscapes in post-conflict contexts, the authors push the boundaries between the notions of subjective and objective, ethics and aesthetics, individual and collective, local and global and past and present. By mixing graphics, photographs, text, documents, drawings, sound and video in reconstructing the fragmented realities -- in which people both thrive and die -- the exhibition calls for recognition of the resilience of ordinary people and acknowledgment of ‘ordinariness’ and individuality of those who have posthumously been put into collective categories, mass graves and war statistics, or elevated to the abstract status of nations' martyrs.

The traveling exhibition was previously shown in Sarajevo, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Vienna.

Co-sponsored by Midwest BankCentre.
