The exhibition “Difficult Pasts. Connected Worlds” includes works by Aslan Ġoisum, Jaana Kokko, Quinsy Gario, Lia Dostlieva, Andrii Dostliev, Paulina Pukytė, Ülo Pikkov, Vika Eksta, Zuzanna Hertzberg. The stories of this exhibition bring together the difficult and often-silenced aspects of pasts including violent conflicts, painful losses and their long-term legacies. The difficult pasts addressed here involve nationalist and communist regimes, recent warfare and histories of colonialism, and are focused on this complex heritage in the Baltic and Eastern European region. It was curated by Ieva Astahovska and Margaret Tali and took place as a part of a long-term collaborative project “Communicating Difficult Pasts”. For more information see here.
