Original post from 26 March 2019:
On 2 April from 1 to 8 pm an exhibition of the travelling memorial "Prijedor '92" by artist Anita Zečić takes place at Ravensberger Park in front of the Volkshochschule Bielefeld. The installation is a dedication for all civilian casualties of Prijedors of the war in Bosnien-Herzegowina (1992–95). Despite struggeling for many years, a memorial does not exist in Prijedor. This exhibition supports the demand of the survivors and makes a first step toward a permanent memorial. The intent of the installation is to facilitate the sense of fear in closed and narrow spaces without the option to escape. This is only a part of the emotions the captives of the concentration camps had to endure.
The exhibition accompanies the lecture The White Armband Day – Cross-boarder remembrance to the genocide in Prijedor (Bosnia-Herzegovina) by Johanna Paul (2 April, 6-8 pm, vhs). Both events are a part of the public lecture series Linie 4 "About the Dealing with Discrimination: News From Social Sciences and History" which takes place from 19 March to 25 June and offers various presentations by members of the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS).
