SREBRENICA TODAY was initiated on the occasion of the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide and the signing of the Dayton Agreement and will be shown on 11 July at the Srebrenica-Potočari Memorial Center as part of the official commemoration ceremony.
The exhibition is displayed in the premises of ERSTE Foundation in Vienna, it was shown at the Cultural Center Parobrod in Belgrade and at the European Forum Alpbach 2015, and in 2016 it will be shown in the Philantropy House in Brussels.
Twenty years after the genocide SREBRENICA TODAY is a visual portrait of the town and its residents showing moments of everyday life in the town of Srebrenica and its surroundings. The exhibition is comprised of eight posters. Each of them features photo-portraits of the residents, their everyday life or professional activities.

Each author tells his/her own story about how they see SREBRENICA TODAY, how it developed in the last 20 years, where it is now and what its future is or could be.
