The Culture Lobby: an archive of cultural memory
City Gallery Collegium artisticum (Sarajevo)
October 30 – November 11, 2010
The exhibition of photographs of the territories of the Western Balkans that have yet to join the European Union is the product of a three-year collaborative photographic project entitled The Culture Lobby. The Culture Lobby project offers opportunity for critical reflection during this period of cultural anomie, as well as the creation of a common European identity, as part of a supranational structure in which diverse and different identities and cultures can co–exist.
