Exhibition “Imagining the Balkans” Opens at National Museum

 

A regional travelling exhibition “Imagining the Balkans, Identities and Memory in the Long 19th Century” will open at the National Museum in Ljubljana on Monday. Created in collaborative efforts of 12 regional museums, the exhibition is part of UNESCO’s efforts to encourage intercultural dialogue.

The member museums are all national institutions, which have been created and are functioning as promoters of exclusive national identities and ideologies, usually posed one against the other and originally not created for working together, said coordinator of the exhibition Philippos Mazarakis-Ainian.
