LDA NIS: PHOTO EXHIBITION ON FASCISM’S SYMBOLS ON THE WALLS OF NIS. 19th of May 2012



On the occasion of the upcoming Night of Museums in Nis, on 19th of May, Centre for Development of Civil Resources (CRCR) and LDA Nis in cooperation with the National Museum of Nis, is preparing the second exhibition of photographs entitled "Words too strong".
The exhibition theme is the presence of fascism in Nis.

We live in the time where "fear of difference" is strong. Fascism tends to manipulate and strengthen this fear, mostly in the form of racism, homophobia and xenophobia. Nowadays on the territory of Nis, one can observe graffiti swastikas or various messages that promote hate speech.
Most people do not pay attention to the symbolism of these characters. Messages of hate cannot be valuable framework appropriate for a democratic society and a tolerant environment.
With this exhibition we wish to put again emphasis on this problem and oppose further dissemination of hate speech in Serbia.
This year's exhibition will take place at the concentration camp from the Second World War, "Red Cross" in Nis and will be, for the first time, organized as multimedia exhibition.
The venue of the concentration camp "Red Cross" makes a symbolic link between time and events which belong to the history of the camp and today's worrying appearance of fascism in modern society, all of them associated with our city.
The authors of the exhibition are young prominent photographers from the region of Nis.
