home again

back in berlin we are still a little bit dazed and confused by all the impressions, stories, friends, and by the 22 hour car drive... The trip to Sarajevo and Mostar was wonderful - we really enjoyed watching the documentary with so many and so different people, and we hope that the sticker mania will continue in full force.. send us pics from your mobile phones wherever you plant the stickers!!

Finally, we'd like to thank a lot of people who supported and helped us during the last week and the last months of preperation - they were crucial for the project and without them, it wouldn't have been half as much fun... Thank you: Anne, Christiana, Sena, Boris, Oliver, Alen, Aline, Sandi, Dragan, Kristijan, Bojana and of course a big thank you to everyone who joined in the sticker madness...

love from Berlin!

yesterday we had two screenings of the documentary: one in mostar at the film klub mostar OKC abrasevic and another at citypub in sarajevo. the OKC abrasevic youth center (http://www.okcabrasevic.org) in mostar has a similar story to dom mladih but with a better end to this point - it was destroyed during the war - there is a really motivated crew that rebuilt it and opened it up again.

we also continued with the stickermania (one of the street-art-projects) in sarajevo and in mostar. here you can see the work in progress of the handmade stickers. And the results in the streets.

today is the last chance to view the film with us before we leave sarajevo: if the weather ist fine - there is gonna be a screening at dom mladih around 8h. So we hope to see you.

yesterday we started the lovely sarajevo foto safari:
so far 50 kids came to kino bosna to grab a camera - today we will
collect most of the cameras, and it is still possible to join the safari
until we leave for berlin next week.

we showed the film in club bock between the concerts yesterday night,
a lot of people where around and saw it, we had a long night
with a good party there!

tonight we will have a fireshow in front of city pub at about 20.15h and will show
the film right after it - so just be around there after dark! there will be a
concert afterwards - maybe we`ll show the film a second time later.

streetart & more

at the height of the electional campaigns in bosnia, there are some posters around in sarajevo that dont fit the usual image of voting-advertisement - without any of the obvious messages, we are hoping to make some people wonder a bit or think about what it could be. the first picture shows gerrits foto-series from revival 2005 in front of dom mladih. we had to put this set in front of the building because the administration of dom mladih denied hanging the posters in the windows of the youth house.

but at last we got all small problems solved and hung five series at the hotspots of the city where they are hopefully gonna stay for a while. The second picture shows the posters on the mainroad entering sarajevo - opposite the "holiday inn".

yesterday we had the first screening of the documentary at kino bosna - todo un exito; today will be the second screening. so if u havent been to see it yesterday u are invited to club bock/fis this evening. the screening at dom mladih is postponed to tuesday, we are gonna keep u informed when we have everything confirmed.

also the workshops started and we`re gonna present the first results here or on the webpage soon...

you'd like to see published here.
we can put up a link to your website or project, publish
pictures or films, texts and music.
