Opening of a new temporary exhibition
Up YU Go! Stories of Identities on the Line

The opening of the new temporary exhibition Up YU Go! Stories About the Identities on the Line will be held on Thursday, 9 December 2021, at 6 pm.

The exhibition will be opened by the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor.

Due to anti-COVID measures, we invite you to virtually follow the opening live via museum’s YouTube channel (Muzej novejše zgodovine Slovenije).

The exhibition Up YU Go! Stories of Identities on the Line highlights the stories of immigrants from Yugoslavian republics to Slovenia and their descendants in the period after World War II. It offers an intimate view into the complex personal stories of three generations, their relationships and family dynamics, their transition into a new home, and the impact of Slovenia's independence and wars in Yugoslavia on their lives. It illuminates the multiplicity of possible identities that interact and shape the reality of every individual. In so doing, the processes of belonging, self-discovery, remembrance, exclusion, stigmatisation, othering – and continuous shifting among them – are humanised.

The exhibition was created as part of the European project Identity on the Line and will be presented to a lesser extent in 11 European cities as part of a joint exhibition of all project partners.

Exhibition will be on display between 10 December 2021 and 1 May 2022.
