This work captures the images of the viewers and elaborates them in real time, fragmenting the human shapes and merging them with text that narrates the tragic destiny of Balkanise populations, almost turning the spectators into the “Balkan Ghosts.”
After important exhibitions about the Balkans that have been realised in Graz, Vienna, and Kassel that summed up the last ten years of war, dissolution, and identity crisis, it appeared necessary to indicate new directions in which younger generations of artists are moving.
These directions hypothesize more constructive approaches, creations of new utopias within a contemporary hi-tech information society, as seen in works by Slovenian artists son:DA, Tobias Putrih, Vadim Fishkin, or Tomo Savic-Gecan.
