Curated by Natasha Marie Llorens
Conceived by Anna Dasović

The group exhibition conceived by Anna Dasović and curated by Natasha Marie Llorens brings together six contemporary artists, a team of researchers, and an architect to consider a crucial question posed by Croatian-Bosnian author Jozefina Dautbegović: from what fragments – images, stories, archives, historical scraps – does one represent a life in the wake of genocide?

The exhibition positions the genocide that took place in and around Srebrenica, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 25 years ago as a historical moment connecting all the artworks presented. Each perspective represented in the exhibition offers pieces toward the reassembly – towards reimagining – of the memory of violence and loss, acknowledging that lives continued to be lived in spite of that violence.

From what will we reassemble ourselves invites the viewer to both identify with and scrutinise the position of the bystander to genocidal violence – the one who is often neglected by the historical frame, or who remains unmarked, yet whose witnessing continues to be mediated through representation.
