Bosnia and Herzegovina: The two Empires can be unified through Art

The upcoming conference will make use of Sarajevo's museums as examples of how post-conflict nations should support culture to maintain peace.

Culture can of course relate to a number of different things, with art, social norms, and even enjoyable pastimes such as playing casino games that can be found on casino zonder licentie, as well as sports. Each of these can help to promote peace, too, which is why it is important that countries ensure they do everything they can to ensure certain cultures are followed.

As the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia began to disintegrate in 1991, Bosnia and Herzegovina followed Slovenia's and Croatia's lead and proclaimed independence.
However, a civil war that produced horrifying humanitarian crimes, such as the three-year siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica tragedy, quickly followed this momentous, happy pronouncement. Due to the war, more than 100,000 people perished.

Despite having a troubled and tragic past, Bosnia and Herzegovina now enjoy unbroken peace despite having a troubled and tragic past. Thanks to organisations like the History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Srebrenica Memorial Center, cities like Sarajevo and Srebrenica are now at peace with their pasts.

The worldwide conference “Why Remember? Peace, Conflict, and Culture”, which these centres are co-hosting, will examine some of the most critical issues post-conflict societies are currently grappling with, including what should be remembered and what should be forgotten, as well as how this process might contribute to the establishment of sustainable and meaningful peace based on mutual understanding.

A team led by Dr Paul Lowe, a famous photographer and course director at the London College of Communication, has put together the conference. Dr. Lowe initially travelled to Sarajevo to capture the siege while serving as a British photojournalist in the early nineties. According to Lowe, the talk will illustrate the methodical character of genocide and how, despite the appearance of unpredictability and chaos at first glance, events like the Srebrenica massacre are frequently organised and overseen by a core group of leaders. According to Lowe, thinking about trauma at home might be made more accessible by considering war abroad.

Tali Nates, the founder and director of the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre and the conference's keynote speaker, echoes this. When referring to South Africa's history of Apartheid, Nates states, "My team and I are struggling with my country's own traumatic past as the founder of a museum in Johannesburg." But we're also talking about the past of nations like Rwanda, Mozambique, West Africa, and others on the African continent.

Because our past has occasionally been so traumatic, Nates asserts that it is always beneficial to consider similar situations. "Apartheid ended 28 years ago, and I can attest that talking about your own past may be challenging. It impacts how you view the present and how you view the future, and it shapes every discussion about everything. Therefore, studying another history can be helpful sometimes.

According to Nates, memorials and museums have a duty to develop into "places of memory activism." She says that we encourage our guests to become activists for change in our severely damaged world. "To actively understand that memory, to contribute to its repair, and eventually to improve our world."

Final words
The best pieces from several design disciplines are displayed, together with the producers of well-known works on the national and international design scene. Every work of art will demonstrate the importance of peace in the nourishment and progress of humanity.
