The first stage in the realization of the project “Art and Sports against totalitarianism: the Kulenovic brothers in the fight against fascism” has been marked by two events that took place on October 28, 2020.
A memorial plaque has been be ceremoniously placed on the house where the family lived during their life in the city of Travnik. The plaque is the work of artist Edin Škulj, and contains the basic information about the brothers Muhamed, Skender and Muzafer, who fought against totalitarian regimes with their artistic and sports activities, for which two of the brothers sacrificed their lives.
The exhibition of paintings by Muhamed Kulenović, and a lecture on the Kulenović family, has been held in the premises of the Homeland Museum Travnik on the same day 28 Oct. The two events are included in the programme of the annual event called “Andrić Days 2020” held in Travnik each year.
In the coming months, an exhibition of the paintings and a lecture will also be set up at the Skender Kulenović Memorial Library in Bosanski Petrovac (Bosnia and Herzegovina), and at the Una-Sana Canton Museum in Bihać (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
