VRIJEME JE BILO LIJEPO AIDA HASANOVIĆ
The Kranzberg November 27 – January 29, 2022
Artist Talk The Kranzberg January 8, 4pm Vrijeme Je Bilo Lijepo is an exhibition that invites the St. Louis community, home to 70,000 Bosnians, to reflect on the legacy of the Bosnian Genocide, as well as larger connections to stories of migration and refuge within the U.S. Titled in reference to conversations among Muslim refugees across the Balkan Diaspora, the exhibition considers Hasanović’s personal experience of larger oppressive structures. Through new video and photography works, the exhibition questions how to represent a personal and collective history that spans generations.
Aida Hasanović is a Bosnian-American artist and writer currently based in St. Louis, MO. Her work explores how different issues of memory and migration interact in the re-construction of a synthesized cultural identity. Her practice weaves from working in photography, bookmaking and video. Aida’s recent work and research investigates how sociopolitical trauma and historical circumstances affect our notions of belonging. Hasanović’s work has been exhibited locally and nationally including the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis, SRLBX in Columbia and Cherry Gallery in Richmond, VA.
