Paris, 7 March, 2013

The exhibit was created in the belief that Nations and their History should not be a matter of division, and developed as a historic opportunity to place national histories in a global context, compare disputed narratives, and revive shared memories. This is the very first time that all national history museums from South-East Europe are coming together to put in perspective and compare their collections and their national histories. The exhibit, which is structured around eight thematic areas, rather than on exclusive and contrasting parallel national histories and narratives, presents shared key processes and experiences, common features and historical interactions, including with the rest of Europe.

The exhibit will be inaugurated on the occasion of the meeting of the Council of Ministers of Culture of South-East Europe, in the presence of the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova; the acting Minister of Culture, Education, Science, and Sport of Slovenia, Žiga Turk; the President of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), Dr. Hans-Martin Hinz; and the Director of the National Museum of Slovenia, Barbara Ravnik. All Ministers of Culture from South-East Europe will attend the opening.

Julien Anfruns, Director General of ICOM, explains: “We are delighted that ICOM has participated in this project, which is fundamental since it sets museums at the heart of society as active players in the healing efforts in a complex political situation and in the construction of a harmonious coexistence.”

It will then travel to Belgrade (Serbia) and Bucharest (Romania) in September/December 2013.
