54 artists read the history of the territory through the gestures of contemporary heroes, considering – among others – the themes of hospitality and coexistence.

The exhibition marks a new chapter in the research dedicated to the Middle East and the Mediterranean area. It illustrates the artistic buzz in former Yugoslavian countries with a specific interpretation key.

Can the Socialist legacy help to recover the concept of the “common good”, in a complex territory that has recently suffered the drama of the Civil War and the rise of nationalism in opposition to the multi-ethnicity that distinguishes it and the economic crisis that has affected the whole of Europe?

Over 50 artists read the history of the area through the gestures of contemporary heroes, who contributed to the crisis of nationalism, favoring important reflections on the themes of hospitality and coexistence.
