Dealing with the past

Activities that involve dealing with the past are the core of the museum’s entire operation. The basis for the implementation of the museum program is the result of research on various sensitive and painful topics from the recent history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the aim of opening up space for dialogue and a thorough analysis of the past.

The museum works daily to collect objects and stories, musealize the war and develop activities that can be used in the education of different sectors of the musuem public. Programs dealing with the past include: museum exhibitions, workshops, lectures, book promotions, film screenings, seminars, and conferences. The museum often makes use of the language of art in dealing with the past.
