Reznica is a visual and social research, a collection of stories and portraits, of listening and sharing.
It’s a journey to discover what it means to feel at home for those who became refugees in Serbia, 30 years after the outbreak of the Yugoslav conflicts (1991-2021).
A project that focuses on the word “home” to bring a new narrative to the story of that dramatic historical period that shocked the whole world in the early 90s of the last century.
Today more than ever, in the midst of the pandemic, the housing issue has become crucial and Reznica, through an intimate narration of various personal stories, seeks to bring into the public debate a reflection on the need to change the processes of inclusion, consolidated for decades in a perspective of mere assistance, towards an authentic participation of the people who benefit from these aids.
