Aphasia

Jelena Jureša
2019

The book is published at the occasion of Jelena Jureša’s solo exhibition at Argos, Centre for Art and Media and is an extension of APHASIA, the new film by Jelena Jureša.

As a medical term, aphasia refers to the inability to speak or to find the right words. Starting from the themes tackled in the film, this book focuses on the collective silence surrounding crime and the compartmentalisation of historical events, and it traces the line between Belgian colonialism, Austrian anti-Semitism and the wars in Yugoslavia.
