The exhibition Silence Is Deafness Here examines the various migrations that have marked this region: from the figure of Gastarbeiter, through the war, and the so-called breakup of Yugoslavia, to the Balkan route. If we tried to map all past and present movements, we would get a moving image resembling an anthill – a river of endangered people. However, this is not an attempt to map all the movements in the search for the future, but a review of the fragments of certain journeys. How do we perceive them? What is our relationship towards them? How do we participate in them? How are we positioned within them? How do we (not) overcome them? The exibition is inspired by A Seventh Man (1975), a book in the form of photography and text by John Berger and Jean Mohr, on migrant workers in Europe.
