In September 2016 a new Photographic Documentation (an ongoing project) guided Oliver Weber through the remnants of old Yugoslavia - to commemorate 16 years without a major attempted genocide in the Balkans. The Balkans have been a crossroads, a zone of endless military, cultural, and economic mixing and clashing between Europe and Asia, Christianity and Islam, Catholicism and Orthodoxy. What is happening now over there? Is this at all understandable? Of course not.
