August 25th, 1992, marked the destruction of Sarajevo’s most famous landmark of the Austro-Hungarian era. The s. c. Vijećnica served as the National University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina since 1947. On August 25th, the smoke from the grenades launched by the aggressor destroyed more than 90% of the library material, with over 2 million books, articles and other treasures lost forever. The destruction of Vijećnica meant the loss of invaluable books and cultural heritage as well as the destruction of a beautiful and cherished cultural monument.
As part of the In Memory of the Destruction of Vijećnica cultural event programme, the oldest square in Maribor will host an art exhibition. The Festić Gallery will act as the cultural bridge between Slovene and Bosnian artists by exhibiting a part of its rich permanent collection of works by renowned artists. The exhibition will bridge two different cultures, mentalities and gentle artistic souls, who have found a common existence in their artistic expression.
The beauty of art is oblivious to differences in skin colour, religious beliefs or nationality. In a time, when human compassion and spiritual depth have been pushed to the brink of society, the need for each individual to remember the atrocities of war and strive to never repeat them is more necessary than ever.
