Two European cities of comparable size yet very different cultural and historical backgrounds are the starting point for this exhibition. What is on display are works created by artists from Sarajevo and Graz which refer to the respective cities and address questions pertaining to identity and (urban) life. With regard to the subject matter, the artistic contributions explore private and collective memories, hidden hi/stories, transformations and discontinuities in the present and in the past as well as positive fictions of living together.
