Shared Stories deals with experiences on the topics of war, genocide, diaspora and home in relation to the conflicts in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda in the 1990s. In the very first exchange between Bosnian, Rwandan and German artists, personal experiences, thoughts and visions in different settings were exchanged online and artistically processed.
