One of the particular interests of this discussion will focus on how the collective memory of our violent past is being shaped through different forms of art and what is the role of the dissenting artist in confronting established doctrines and social orders in the face of official censorship and new narratives.

The panel discussion will bring artists, filmmakers, and media representatives from the region to discuss the challenges of confronting mainstream narratives and the ways in how art can contribute to reconciliation.

This panel discussion is organized jointly with Humanitarian Law Center in Kosovo and will be moderated by Bekim Blakaj.
