The film addresses the Siege of Sarajevo twenty years later through a walk taken by 10 different characters. As the camera goes around on the streets of Sarajevo, we get to witness the signs of the war. When Serbians were busy preparing for the war they were planning to start, Bosnians were having pro-peace protests on the streets. As the assaults intensified, Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared war in June 20, 1992. Thousands of people died during the subsequent war which lasted three and a half years. The war made headlines around the globe due to the atrocities committed against the people of Bosnia. However, the epic victory gained by handmade guns against the fourth largest army in Europe was ignored. Sarajevo March is the story of victory, not atrocity.

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

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.
