"Overcoming Past"

Exhibition, panel discussion, presentations, National Gallery, Sarajevo
The project “Overcoming Past” deals with the different forms of art and culture as indicators and correctives of historical attempts to create a political consciousness. The exhibition presents artistic positions which critically query identifi cation with collective symbols and create their own repertoire of symbols taken from a parallel, virtual reality. The panel discussions “Working Out the Past” and “Art as Social Corrective” extends the themes addressed in the exhibition. Furthermore, artists present concepts for new or already realized “monuments,” including Sokol Beqiri (Peja, Kosovo) with his project “Skenderbeg and Mother Theresa Monuments” and the group “Urban Movement” (Bosnia-Herzegovina) with their plans to erect a Bruce Lee monument in Mostar.
