There is still someone in the woods // Jersey city New York (JCTC)

The art exhibition “THERE IS STILL SOMEONE IN THE WOODS” was staged at the Jersey City Theater Center in New York on April 23 and will run until April 28. The exhibition was created in collaboration with the photographer Oriol Casanovas and the writer Teresa Turiera-Puigbò – Cultura i Conflicte, and talks about Nevenka, Meliha, Milica, Alen, Lejla and Ajna: All of them were born in the war or survived it, but they are “victims of a peaceful age” because for 30 years they have been suffering from institutional oblivion and social stigma, as well as the physical and psychological consequences of wartime rape.

As part of the exhibition, there was also a screening of the film There’s Still Someone in The Woods, after which the attendees had the opportunity to participate in an interactive panel discussion with artists and organizers on the topic of “rape as a weapon of war”. The audience was delighted with the work of the Forgotten Children of War Association, which was presented by our friends from Cultura i Conflicte, as an initiator of positive changes 30 years after the war.

The installation of the exhibition and the screening of the film was made possible by the Catalan Institute in America in cooperation with the Jersey City Theater Center, all as part of this year’s festival of literature and art #SantJordiUSA.
