ALL OUR TEARS – Stories of victims of wars in the region


We invite you to the opening of the exhibition All Our Tears, May 25 at 6 pm in the gallery Endzio Hub, Dobračina 4, Belgrade.

This unique exhibition is dedicated to the stories of victims of wars in the region. The goal of the installation is to acquaint the general public with the stories and make a plea for support for the victims and other affected groups in the region in their pursuit of truth and justice.

The exhibition consists of 34 original photographs, taken by four photographers in various places in Serbia, Kosovo and North Macedonia. The photographers did not know each other, yet managed to create a universal story with their photographs and unite the painful memories of an ordinary person and their suffering.

The stories represent several aspects of the wars in the former Yugoslavia – family photos of missing persons, sites of atrocities, mass graves, internally-displaced people and memorials, but also the lingering consequences of the conflict that are still felt today, showing all the tragedy and complexity of the war.

The exhibition All Our Tears aims to advance mutual understanding at the collective and individual level in order to increase social development and cohesion.

The process of creation is done in cooperation with associations of families of the missing and deceased from Serbia and Kosovo, as well as families of deceased civilians and IDPs from North Macedonia, with the aim to open space for new opportunities and joint initiatives when it comes to building peace and reconciliation in the region.

After the opening, you will be able to visit the exhibition every day from 2 pm to 7 pm, until June 1, 2022.

Organized by Civic Initiatives, Integra, Peace Action and New Social Initiative, with the support of PAX and ICTJ, this regional exhibition will travel from Belgrade to Skopje and Pristina, during 2022.

Photographers: Atdhe Mulla, Borislav Pešić, ArbnoraMemeti and Nake Batev.

Curator of the exhibition in Belgrade: Borislav Pešić.
