»CLERICALIZATION OF BELGRADE« All images from the Lost Highway Expedition, a multi annual project about “Balkanization” initiated by Centrala Foundation for Future Cities and the School of Missing Studies.


»The evolution of street trade« from the »Wild City / Genetics of Uncontrolled Urban Processes« a research into non-planned and barely regulated processes of urban transformations. By examining the city of Belgrade, over the past decade in the wake of the Balkan conflicts, a new physical layer of the contemporary city has been discovered and explored. Its wild topology has developed in opposition to a centralised, directed process of growth. A collaborative project by Ana Dzokic, Milica Topalovic, Marc Neelen and Ivan Kucina.

»1992«, 2007. Vangelis Vlahos has collected material from different sources (media, internet, state archives, etc.) forming an archive that focuses on the context of the specific renovation in relation to the Greek policies in the Balkans. The research is based on the funding of the renovation of the former Bosnian Parliament building in Sarajevo by the Greek State and deals in general with Greece’s role in the Balkans, during the last 15 years.

Balkan Erotic Epic.jpg

Balkan Erotic Epic is a multi-channel video installation based on Marina Abramovic’s research into Balkan folk culture and its use of the erotic. According to her, it is through eroticism that the human tries to make himself equal with the gods. People believed that in the erotic there was something superhuman that doesn’t come from them but from the gods. Obscene objects and male and female genitals have a very important function in the fertility and agricultural rites of Balkan peasants. They were used very explicitly for a variety of purposes. Women would show in the rituals openly their vaginas, bottoms, breasts and menstrual blood. Men would show openly in the rituals their bottoms and penises in acts of masturbation and ejaculation. Video excerpts: Men with Erections in National Costume, Women Massaging Breasts, Women in the Rain, Group of Men Copulating with the Earth.
