Football: metaphor for life

June 12, 2013

I wandered into the National Gallery in Sarajevo the other day–and happened to see a documentary / video installation that I made with Robi, on exhibit! It’s part of a documentary archive about football fans in Mostar in 2009. The football clubs are ethnically divided; thus, games sometimes end in riots. I filmed interviews with two soccer fans from opposing teams and footage from a match, including the riot police standing guard. The game in Mostar ended peacefully that day, but someone was shot and killed at a soccer game in the next town over.






The documentary archive also featured texts, photos and a second video installation. Marija burned a pile of soccer balls as her protest against violence by soccer hooligans.

    Wow, that must be fun to wander into a gallery and see your work! I hope that happens to me one day 🙂

    Such a dramatic topic. I’m so impressed that your work spans such a wide range of contemporary issues and ideas. I never know what is coming next!!
