Gallery 11/07/95 is the first memorial gallery in Bosnia and Herzegovina whose aim is to preserve the memory of the Srebrenica genocide and its 8 372 victims who were killed after the Army of Republika Srpska captured the eastern Bosnian town on July 11, 1995.
The permanent exhibition provides documentary scenes of what was left of Srebrenica in the wake of the genocide, including wall with the names of the victims, old family photographs, the scenes from the survivors’ camp, bones that were once scattered and later collected, offensive graffiti, photos of women from Srebrenica in front of Anne Frank’s house, as well as video and audio documents. Through a wide range of multimedia content – images, maps, audio and video materials, the Gallery offers documentary and artistic interpretation of the events that took place in this small town in Eastern Bosnia during the month of July 1995. The concept is a museum-gallery hybrid: this blend of artistic and documentary forms counteracts the homogenous and ideological interpretative strategies. What makes it special is that it does not deal with history in its final, recorded form: it also intervenes into the historical moment that is not only recent past, but belongs to the present as well. The overall aim of this museum is to be a strong and decisive voice against all forms of violence in the world. Srebrenica is a symbol – not only of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also of the suffering of innocent people and the indifference of others. The gallery employs mixed media – photography, video, and interactive documentary motivating the spectator to reflect on the particular politics of memory and forgetting, that have come to characterize not only the event itself, but also how the event has been (re)presented.
