Silence Is Deafness Here
The exhibition “Silence Is Deafness Here“ analyses various migrations characterising this region: from the figure of Gastarbeiter (guest worker), through the war and the so-called breakup of Yugoslavia, to the Balkan Route.
If we tried to map all the past and present movements, we would get a moving image resembling an ant hill—rivers of people whose survival is threatened. However, this is not an attempt to map all the movements in search of the future, but rather some fragments of certain journeys. How do we perceive them? How do we treat them? How do we participate in them? How do we position ourselves within them? How do we (not) overcome them?
