Born in 1977 in Novi Pazar, Serbia
Lives and works in Kassel, Germany

I was born on May 4th 1977 in Novi Pazar, a small town in the south of Serbia, formerly Yugoslavia, the so called TITO’s Yugoslavia. Three years later, on the same day, a football game was played at the “Poljud” stadium between “Red Star” Belgrade and “Hajduk” Split. Around five past three p.m. that game was stopped and all the players fell to the ground and cried bitterly…

Comrade TITO had died.

My life story started in a very strange way – with a hunger strike. The diagnosis was that I lacked a sucking reflex. My mother often used to describe her twenty-day-long horrific fight for my life. How lifeless and jaundiced I was. How she fed me with a dropper, and that the doctors didn’t have any hope for me anymore. But she wouldn’t give up.

On the twenty-first day, out of desperation, she put me once again to her breast… and a miracle happened. Through tears of happiness she kept calling out to my father: “He’s sucking! He’s sucking!”

On the same day, 85 years earlier, in the small town of Kumrovac, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (at that time), Josip Broz was born.

108 years later I returned to the scene of the crime…

Rođen je 1977. godine u Novom Pazaru, živi i radi u Kaselu.

Rođen sam 4. Maja 1977. godine u Novom Pazaru, malom gradiću na jugu Srbije, u Jugoslaviji, bivšoj Jugoslaviji, takozvanoj Titovoj Jugoslaviji. Tri godine kasnije, na isti dan, odigrana je utakmica na stadionu “Poljud” između “Zvezde” i “Hajduka”. Oko tri sata i pet minuta utakmica je prekinuta, igrači su popadali na travu i gorko zaplakali…

Umro je drug TITO.

Moja životna priča je počela jako čudno – štrajkom glađu. Dijagnoza lekara je bila da mi nedostaje refleks za sisanje. Moja majka bi mi često opisivala njenu strahovitu dvadesetodnevnu borbu za moj život. To kako sam bio beživotan i žut. Kako me je hranila pipetom, i to kako su me svi doktori već bili otpisali… Ali ona NE.

Dvadeset prvog dana, van sebe od očaja, poslednji put me je prinela sisi… I gle, čudo se desilo. Kroz jecaje radosti dozivala je moga oca: “On sisa! On sisa!”

Istoga dana, osamdeset pet godina ranije, u malom Kumrovcu, u tadašnjoj Austro-Ugarskoj, rođen ja Josip Broz.

Sto osam godina kasnije vratio sam se na mesto zločina...
