01 April 2014:
The Sklonište exhibition will open on Saturday the 5th of April at 7.00pm at the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, presented by Memory Modul and featuring the photography of Jim Marshall.
This exhibition results from photographs mostly captured over the last three years. This word on the walls of Sarajevo was highly visible across the entire city during the siege but is now rapidly disappearing, replaced by graffiti and new facades. It is entirely possible that this word will have completely disappeared from Sarajevo’s walls in just a few years, as if it had never existed at all.
The photographs featured in the Sklonište exhibition are a means of preserving the memory of this word written on these walls. Of the less than 80 examples that the photographer was able to find throughout the city, many have already disappeared forever, existing now only in the photographs taken of them.
The stories featured in the Sklonište exhibition, provided by citizens of the city, are a means of conveying the survival, humanity, humour, warmth and kindness of Sarajevo’s citizens during the siege. They describe an atmosphere in which the remarkable became routine, the extraordinary became normal.
The exhibition will be open until the 9th of May 2014.
