»Missing Stories. Forced Labor under Nazi Occupation. An Artistic Approach« is an exhibition of the Goethe-Institut Serbia with the support of the Stiftung EVZ (Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future) at the Willy-Brandt-Haus Berlin.
For the transnational artistic project, artists from Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and Germany have created works on the subject of forced labour in the Third Reich from the perspective of the inhabitants of the Balkans. Some of the artists have an autobiographical connection to the theme.
The artworks are of different genres from photography and film to oil paintings and audiovisual spatial installations and were shown as part of a tour in the artists’ countries of origin. Finally, the Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus presents the exhibition on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of National Socialism from 27 January 2022 in Berlin.
