Reconciliations is a two-part exhibition running in parallel at the Exchange, Bush House, King’s College London from 1 November-1 December 2018, and at the Knapp Gallery, Regent’s University London, from 1 November 2018-19 January 2019. The exhibitions are part of a major AHRC-funded project, ‘Art & Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community’, led by King’s in collaboration with the University of the Arts London and the London School of Economics, and funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Partnership for Conflict Crime and Security Research Programme (PaCCS) and by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

Art and Reconciliation explored the politics of reconciliation across the Western Balkans and beyond from a variety of perspectives in three strands, History, Discourse and Practice. The exhibitions offer a chance to see the specific project art commissions, as well as other works relating to the broader concept of ‘reconciliation’.

There will also be a series of events, including artists’ talks, seminars, and performances.

29th June – 31st August 2018: ‘REconciliations’ exhibition, Sarajevo

‘REconcilaitions’ brings together regional and international artists who have produced artwork in response to the collection of the History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Undertaken as part of Art and Reconciliation, the exhibition has sought to ask questions about the role of the artist in post conflict societies. How can artists look back and critically re-interpret history in order to look forward and re-imagine a different future?  ReConciliations features the work of seven artists working with film, sculpture, drawing and audio visual installations: Lana Čmajčanin & Adela Jušić;  Milena Michalski; Mladen Miljanovic; Paul Coldwell; Sabina Tanović & Dario Kristić; Vladimir Miladinovic; Ziyah Gafic.  For more info see here.
