SREBRENICA, June 11 (FENA) – International art advisor and curator, Filippo Tattoni-Marcozzi, visited the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial on Thursday and said he would help the institution and try to connect it with internationally recognized galleries, museums and cultural institutions.
Tattoni-Marcozzi visited the Memorial Room and the graves of genocide victims and got acquainted with the currently ongoing projects of the Srebrenica Memorial Center.
“Mr. Tattoni-Marcozzi has participated in several important global campaigns involving designers and global brands with humanitarian goals. We were particularly interested in the project he worked on in connection with the Halo Trust, a mine clearance organization that operates around the world,” said the Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Center, Emir Suljagić.
Suljagić explained that the Memorial Center seeks to bring the facts of the Srebrenica genocide closer to the world and that it has never been more important to repeat learned or unlearned lessons about genocide in order to prevent new genocides from taking place anywhere else in the world.
“Last year, I visited this place for the first time to attend the annual genocide commemoration in Srebrenica. This time I was honored with an invitation to learn about the commitment of the Srebrenica Memorial to building a touching and powerful exhibition experience that would honor the memory of the survivors, but at the same time universalize the message of hope, peace and reconciliation.
The world must remember, learn and never forget,” he added and announced that he will do everything he can to connect the institution with internationally recognized galleries, museums and cultural institutions, and expressed readiness to contribute to the development of the Center through workshops with members of the team.
Tattoni-Marcozzi also took this chance to speak with a team of cameramen, photographers and public relations experts, as well as curators of the Memorial Center who showed interest in opportunities for innovation and improvement of communications of the institution, stated the Srebrenica Memorial Center.
