The Silence of the Song

Pristina, Kosovo
1 of 1YouTube

This song is just one of the components of a multimedia project/exhibition (installation, performance, music, video) dedicated to sexually abused women from the last war in Kosovo 1999. The song and the whole project focuses and treats silence as the only condition of these women living in postwar Kosovo, because of their stigmatization, exclusion, because of a very closed society in Kosovo.

But it's not only their silence as a way of surviving in postwar Kosovo, it's also the collective silence of the society and the institutions of Kosovo for a long time concerning this issue.

There are movements lately from Institutions to regulate and recognize their status as war victims, by the law approved recently. Also a lot of work has been going on by many women NGO-s on treating these victims.
