Among their best known body of work are Paparazzi and Re-enactments which are mostly focused on famous or very popular type of images, no matter where these images come from (e.g. popular culture, mass media etc). Images from these fields are being manipulated, enacted, quoted or sampled.  MORE…

A BALKAN TALE
Uta Benzenberg, Ivan Blažev, Samir Karahodzha, Camilo Nollas, Ivan Petrović

Friday, 30 May at 8 pm / Slovene Ethnographic Museum, Ljubljana

A Balkan Tale project deals with the Ottoman cultural heritage in the Balkans. The resulting group show aims to stimulate public discourse about the history of this area, to promote a sense of common history based on religious and ethnic co-existence, and to contribute to public access to and the preservation of its cultural heritage. Recent data indicates that the cultural heritage of the Ottoman Era in the Balkans is greatly threatened, as over 98% of existing Ottoman period buildings have been destroyed. Furthermore, historians have established a link between the use of history and the potential of inter-ethnic violence in the region.  MORE…
