“Transitions” is a four-part international cultural exchange between the cities of Chicago, Bogotá, Goma, and Sarajevo. This multimedia exhibition highlights several national journeys of transitional justice in post-conflict environments. Through collaboration, community conversations, and workshops, the four teams of curators and photographers have explored and reflected upon the unique and shared experiences of a country’s evolution from war to peace, alongside the lessons learned by their colleagues and audiences.
After its openings in Chicago and Bogotá, “Transitions” premiered in Sarajevo on the iconic Skenderija Bridge during WARM Festival 2017. In summer 2018, “Transitions” opened in Goma, DRC.
