Early 90’s… With the breakup of Yugoslavia, the end of the communist regime and a democratic government, a new era had just begun in the Balkans. This change and transformation brings an end to Divko Buntic’s years in exile. Divko has a young wife, a cat, a Mercedes and plenty of money. He decides to return home, to a small village in southern Herzegovina; not only to celebrate the happy days but also for revenge. Unfortunately, the never ending disturbance in the Balkans brings back the war. Cirkus Columbia is directed by Danis Tanovic, the director of the Academy Award winner Bosnian film No Man’s Land (2001).

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art. 

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day. 

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
