Who has the right to remember?
What stays on the top of our minds? How do our reflections connect us?
The body is a living memorial.
Of collective memory. Of moving memory.
Yugoslavia, the place where reminiscences collide.
Did we know what was happening on the “other side”? Why didn’t we?
Who creates narratives of collective memory?
Being disturbed is an unavoidable part of the recollection process and coming together. Is disturbance what we tend to avoid while remembering?
Soft, tender, nurturing spaces. For silence. For listening. For witnessing.
Raw. Entropic. Multilayered. Horrendous. Painful.
Spaces of softness and care, for memories to take a rest.

“I will listen,
I will hold your hand,
We can cry,
We can sing Sevdah,
While remembering,
While breathing,
While taking a rest in the midst of grief.”
