Adding to the political speech acts in Maja Bajević’s exhibition “To Be Continued,” the tenth-anniversary reprint of Ammiel Alcalay’s from the warring factions (2003), a book-length poem dedicated to Srebrenica, provides an occasion to engage in conversation about public and private speech as well as representations of catastrophe. Join us as Ammiel Alcalay and Bosnian poet Semezdin Mehmedinović, author of Sarajevo Blues (1992) and Nine Alexandrias (2003)—both translated by Alcalay—read and talk about their work.
