Radar & Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Transitional Justice Present
Four Faces of Omarska: Open Video Sequence, Public Montage #1
Wednesday 28th April, 6-8pm (BST)
Free, book here.

Join us for a 'public montage' event consisting of the screening of Four Faces of Omarska: Open Video Sequence, the latest iteration by Milica Tomić of a collectively made video material, followed by a public discussion with invited guests, which will inform future iterations of the work. It will address the mutual discontinuities and continuities of a single site in modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina as a means of surveying the demise of socialist Yugoslavia and Yugoslav society. With a specific focus on the privatisation process and transition from societal property socialism to capitalism, the session will also explore the theoretical, methodological and practical challenges of presenting visual documentation of collective investigative processes. 

Featuring contributions from Milica Tomić, Ivana Bago, Anousheh Kehar and Branimir Stojanović. 

The event has been curated by Lívia Páldi for Radar and the AHRC Research Network 'Interdisciplinary perspectives in transitional justice'. Dr Cristian Tileagă of Loughborough University's School of Social Sciences and Humanities, who leads this network, will provide an introduction to the event and situate it in relation to the network's work.
