Judge Carmel Agius, the last President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) will open the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open until April 16, 2018.
The basis for the exhibition is the interactive narrative Targeting History and Memory (http://www.heritage.sense-agency.com), which shows the way in which crimes against cultural, historical, and religious heritage that were committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia were investigated, reconstructed, and processed at the ICTY in The Hague.
In the framework of the exhibition, a complementary screening of a poetic-documentary film Monument (2015) by the contemporary visual and film artist Igor Grubić is organised at Filmhuis Den Haag (Spui 191).
