Exhibition Bread in the Great War consists of 21 panels (70 x 100 cm) and three LCD screens with documentary photos and testimonies of participants. The aim of the author, Dimitrije Vujadinovic is not only to show the importance of bread as food, but also the wonder of bread as living treasures of collective memory and testimony about the ethical and symbolic values and falls of humans in the most difficult existential conditions, such as the war. With this exhibition, we show that in every war winners and defeaters are losers. In this sense, the exhibition has an anti-war message!
On the occasion of the exhibition, we have established contact with le musée du Compagnonnage who organized the exhibition "Le pain dans la Grande Guerre". The quality of the exhibition contributed significantly the cooperation with the - Museum der Brotkultur, Ulm.
