“Outcast Europe” presents an exhibition of personal items, offered by residents of six European countries – Greece, Bulgaria, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Czech and Hungary. The items carry the personal experiences of their owners and at the same time contain the impact of migration experience in the group conscience of the respective countries, and therefore of Europe.
.Grandpa had brought this TV from Germany. I don’t know if we had ever used it before the war, except that we the children played with it. That's why it doesn’t even have a cable. When the war started, we only watched it because it could be powered by a car battery. Two wires and there you go. Anto / Sarajevo - Zagreb
.When we set out in the morning, my husband just told me to take the most necessary things and that we would be back. I packed the basics for everyone, but I also wrapped this vase in newspaper. My son had given it to me for my birthday, and I didn’t have the heart to leave it. I felt that we might not return. Fatima / Djakovica
Bed sheet Girl’s embroidery i
.Girl’s embroidery was hand crafted on the bed sheets that the bride brings to the new home. He served to show skills in manual work and "female" jobs, but also an artistic gift of a girl. There is no longer a custom of manual work, but some families still carry old items on a female line. The exhibited bed sheet from generations is owned by women from Milica’s family who have fled from Gračanica (Kosovo) to Jagodina (Serbia).
