A Balkan Journey
Chris Leslie and John McDougall

7.15pm – 8.15pm BST*

A Balkan Journey by Chris Leslie takes us on a photographic journey through the towns and cities of post-conflict Former Yugoslavia in this extensive and the previously unseen 24-year archive from the region. This collection showcases his earliest photographs from a war-ravaged Croatian town in 1996, through to the present-day Sarajevo of refugees and migrants trapped in limbo. 2020 marked a quarter of a century since the end of the conflict, but the region and Europe continues to struggle with conflicting ideologies. A Balkan Journey provides a crucial moment of reflection at this time and includes an essay by John McDougall. Join Chris and John for an illustrated talk followed by a Q&A on Chris’s work, the work of other artists in the region, art as a healing tool and the implications of the conflict for the wider world.

*This performance is live/pre-recorded and will be available to watch for three weeks after the broadcast date to accommodate different time zones.
This performance is included in the Aye Write 2021 festival pass, so you will not need to purchase this event if you have already purchased a pass.
