UNHEARD TRACES: Young European Perspectives on War and Peace

How can we try to exhibit absence in a museum? Through tracing the paths of memories. This is what seventeen young people from around Europe did through bringing together objects referring to their personal and collective stories related to war and peace in Europe.

Reflecting on the idea of war as a producer of absence and loss, they developed a display arranged by topics of loss, pain, memory and hope. The artist Guglielmo Manenti manages to give a voice to the objects by translating their background stories into illustrations.
