Why Are We Afraid to Call It What It Is: Genocide - A conversation with Majd Nasrallah and Bojana Piškur

25.04.2024. - 25.04.2024. / MSU, 1. kat


Why Are We Afraid to Call It What It Is: Genocide
A conversation with Majd Nasrallah and Bojana Piškur
Sad Songs of War exhibiton, Museum of Contemporary Art, 1st floor
25th of April, 7 p.m.

Supporters of a free Palestine within the global solidarity movement find themselves in a precarious position: opposing human annihilation against one people is framed as an accusation of endorsing it for another. This paradox, where resistance to genocide is seen as problematic and threatening and is censored and demonized, highlights the grave risks facing global affairs today—signaling the dangerous rise of neo-fascism and right wing politics of a new dark era.

ŽIVA ŠKOLA is a free educational arts program for youth aged 18 to 30, focusing on community and arts. The program's foundations include collectivity, resource exchange, and art as both an activist tool and a therapeutic method. Participants learn about community and contemporary art at the Živi Atelje DK, a centre for creativity, experimentation, friendship, and collaboration, located in the studio where the Zagreb sculptor Vera Dajht Kralj worked for almost 60 years. The program is run by Jutro and Živi Atelje DK, and Živi Atelje’s key component, the Women to Women collective, through ongoing dialogue, rotating roles and knowledge exchange. Using various methods and techniques, across four sessions in April and May 2024, we will explore topics such as otherness, sustainability, community, multilingualism, identity, memory, heritage and equality.
