About the project
In dialogue with the partner region Ex Yugoslavia (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia), FotoDoks 2015 examines the status quo and the potential of the past within the present. The documentary approach of this year’s exhibition finds various ways to explore the theme Past is Now: they work with existing archives or create new ones; they go on a search for historical traces and reflect on cultural stereotypes and musical myths; they look back at the past 25 years since German reunification and 20 years since the Dayton Peace Agreement which ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They question the promise of Europe, and, as is always the case with FotoDoks, the works reconsider the role of documentary photography and the media – they are not afraid to extend their documentary sensors to the areas of video and painting and put contemporary trends like the term “post-documentary” up for discussion.
