The Kosovo War

Photographs by Wade Goddard

July 17 - 31 Oct 2018

The war in Kosovo was instigated by the Kosovo Albanian rebel group known as the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), with the intent of creating an independent Kosovo free from Yugoslavia, for the majority Kosovo Albanians. The Yugoslavia Army retaliation was brutal, thousands were killed and more than a million exiled. With the help of NATO forces and hard-line U.S. diplomacy the Kosovars won the war and later gained independence.

The photographs, brilliantly lighted on dark walls, range from the violent to the absurd. They include pictures of dozens of bodies, victims of the shelling of a Croatian city; artillery fire painting bright orange lines in the night sky; and a Serbian policeman offering water to an elderly Kosovar Albanian as his colleagues burn the old man's village down. 

Stark images by some of the world's best war photographers went on permanent display this week in Dubrovnik, stripping away Hollywood's gloss on war and the euphemisms of leaders who try to sanitise it. The War Photo exhibition is a vision of human conflict in the modern age that early visitors have called powerful, painful, beautiful, brutal, courageous and indispensable. 

*****Excellent exhibition. Well laid out with a clear and informative accompanying guide to put the exhibitions in context and give you some story behind the photos. It's a sobering moment but well worth investing an hour and the 40kuna entrance.
