How do we talk about and heal from genocide?
Why is it that we believe we have no agency?
Who are the custodians of our collective history?
ŠTO TE NEMA is a public monument to the 8,372 victims of the Srebrenica genocide organized through an ongoing partnership between the artist Aida Šehović and Bosnian diaspora communities in a different city each year. Collectively assembled and disassembled by people as a recurring nomadic monument made with donated fildžani (small porcelain cups) that are filled with Bosnian coffee every July 11th, the ŠTO TE NEMA nomadic monument has traveled to 12 different US and European cities since 2006.
Uniting survivors and everyone else directly or indirectly affected by genocide, ŠTO TE NEMA creates an inclusive space in which we can confront the universal issues surrounding genocide by remembering, mourning, and healing together as a unified community.
