opening reception on Thursday October 13,12:45pm, for the exhibition:
Thank You for Loving Me till the End.
Life, Memory and Reconstruction in Post-Atrocity Bosnia and Rwanda
at Yale School of Architecture, North Gallery.
The exhibition is a synthesis of travel research about post-trauma recovery of urban landscapes. Living in a world with much ongoing violence and destruction, we are inevitably entering a new round of discussion about post-war reconstruction. Are we, the future builders of post-atrocity cities, ready to engage with these socio-political issues? Through a series of maps, drawings and a VR installation based on the stories told by survivors, the exhibition takes us through the aftermath and recovery of Bosnia and Rwanda.
This exhibition is about violence, destruction, and the incomprehensibility of mass atrocities. More importantly, it is about the fragility of life, the beauty of love, the resilience of survivors, about living and healing – about what we share as human beings.
Refreshments and snacks will be served at the opening reception. The exhibition will run from October 13 - November 5
