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

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. 

Turquerie

Turquerie

Having penetrated the Balkans in the fourteenth century, conquered Constantinople in the fifteenth, and reached the gates of Vienna in the sixteenth, the Ottoman Empire long struck fear into European hearts.
