Art TV : Charlama depot in Studio A
Sometimes when you’re hosting a TV show and the scheduled guest cancels on you because he’s flying to Australia, the best plan is to call some charismatic artists to stage an intervention in the studio. In the photo above, Boris Siber and I talk to Jusuf Hadzifezovic and an art historian (whose name I now cannot remember, oops). Sibi is actually famous in Bosnia and knows everyone in Sarajevo; he made a few calls and everything was arranged for the show. (Meanwhile I was frantically googling beforehand, as usual!)
A blues concert, an outfit made of the Yugoslavian flag, an impromptu painting contest (Dzanko won), and we were good to go. Especially because one of the artists also owns a bakery and brought cookies. For a few hours, Studio A was turned into an outpost of Charlama Depot. I came to the studio in a black dress but Auntie Halida from wardrobe convinced me to put on a red corset. Auntie Halida could sell a priest a pig, as we say in Ireland.
