Installation view

Compulsory migration forced thousands to leave their homeland during the Balkan Wars.

Communication in their new territory was not easy, as many only knew the language of the land they were born in.

When leaving their homes, they gave their front-door keys to their neighbours hoping to return soon, but they could not ever return.

The film is dedicated to those who were forced to leave their physical and mental belongings behind as well as their memories between the years 1877-1994.

Doseljenik, 2003.
Postavka

Prisilna razmena  naterala je hiljade ljudi da napuste svoju domovinu za vreme ratova na Balkanu.

Komunikacija nije bila laka u njihovim novim zemljama, pošto su mnogi od njih znali samo jezik zemlje u kojoj su rođeni.

Kad su napuštali domove, komšijama su ostavljali ključeve u nadi da će se ubrzo vratiti, ali nikada nisu uspeli.

Film je posvećen onima koji su prisiljeni da napuste mesto kome fizički i mentalno pripadaju i njihovim uspomenama u periodu između 1877. i 1994. godine.
