Abstract

This paper deals with the analysis of two communication stages of ‘dialogue’ and discourse, set by the philosopher Vilém Flusser, on the examples of two photographic series that focus on war traumas: Infertile Grounds by croatian photographer Sandra Vitaljić and Srebrenica series by bosnian photographer Tarik Samarah. The ways, forms, reasons and purpose of presenting art works on war crimes are examined. The communication possibilities of the photographic image and the text at the exhibition, in the gallery, that is, the memorial center, in the publication and on the website are compared.
