Gallery N and S: The Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina
Duration: March 11th – April 30th 2021.
The topic of forced labour during the German occupation of the Balkans is seldom tackled in collective memory – the relevant documentation is scant, public events or debates dealing with the topic are rare, and this sad chapter of European history is left out in history classes and textbooks. On the other hand, numerous families remember the fate of their ancestors who were engaged in forced labour in Nazi Germany during the occupation, be it in factories, labour camps or agricultural work. Owing to this, the destinies of the forced labourers are also present in the individual memories of the current generation, with artists and intellectuals approaching them in a special way.
The aforementioned art pieces will be exhibited as part of the “Missing Stories” tour exhibition in the origin countries of the artists – Serbia (Belgrade and Novi Sad), Albania (Tirana), Montenegro (Podgorica) and Germany (Berlin and Augsburg).
