ART WORKS Projects is pleased to announce the launch of Transitions, a four-part international cultural exchange between the cities of Chicago, Bogotá, Goma, and Sarajevo.
With major support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Transitions will bring together creative teams from Bogotá, Colombia; Chicago, Illinois; Goma, the Democratic Republic of Congo; and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This group will co-curate a photography exhibition to highlight several national journeys of transitional justice in post-conflict environments.
This project will consider multiple aspects of post-conflict society and challenges and successes at varying stages of transitional justice, from across the centuries to recently established zones of fragile peace. It will foster a discussion of varied definitions of otherness and the difficulties these multi-faceted communities face. By sharing diverse post-conflict experiences, Transitions will foster the development of new ideas and solidarity among fellow global citizens.
