  • War Childhood Museum Sarajevo

MOS focusses on individual experiences of war and flight from the perspective of children, teenagers, and young adults - regardless of the place and time of the happenings. The project is planned to be a museum, an archive, and a laboratory for social change. MOS narrates personal stories and objects of people who had to experience war and flight in their childhood and live in Austria today. MOS wants to make their experiences visible. At the same time, MOS presents their experiences as an essential part of Austria's history, present and future. Finally, the overall social relevance of the individual destinies will be underlined because war and flight concern all of us. MOS is planned to be a long-lasting interplay of several elements: an analog museum, an innovative, digital museum, a growing archive of war and flight experiences, and a laboratory for social change. MOS will be a place of exchange and reflection.
