Moments in between

2. 8. 2002 - 31. 8. 2002
Jens Olof Lasthein

The walls are peppered with bullet holes, while the remains of the blown up mosque act as a wood store. A young lad stops and looks down the street in both directions, comes closer but then turns away. After a few steps he spins round, comes back and says: “Everyone here knows what happened to the Muslims. They all know about the mass murder, but nobody can bear living with it. ” He then walks quickly away and disappears round a corner. A stop in the killing and a media withdrawal doesn´t mean the Balkan war is at an end. Jens Olof Lasthein´s book and exhibition deal with daily life in the shadow of war. Between shellings, after ethnic cleansing or before a shot is fired.
