Four Faces of Omarska: Open Video Sequence, Public Montage #1

  • 28 April 2021
  • 18:00 - 20:00
  • Online via Zoom

This 'public montage' event consists of a screening of the latest iteration of Milica Tomić's video work Four Faces of Omarska: Open Video Sequence, followed by a public discussion with invited guests, which will inform future iterations of the work. It will address the mutual discontinuities and continuities of a single site in modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina as a means of surveying the demise of socialist Yugoslavia and the Yugoslav society. With a specific focus on the privatisation process and transition from societal property socialism to capitalism, the session will also explore the theoretical, methodological and practical challenges of presenting visual documentation of collective investigative processes. Those present will be invited to participate in this process, with various contributions subsequently being added to the existing 'open video sequence' through future iterations of the work.

The event has been curated by Lívia Páldi, and commissioned by Radar and the AHRC Research Network 'Interdisciplinary perspectives in transitional justice'. Dr Cristian Tileagă of Loughborough University's School of Social Sciences and Humanities, who leads this network, will provide an introduction to the event and situate it in relation to the network's work.
