In addition to opening words by Alexandra Müller, we will have a special guest with us for the evening. Ana Bilankov, a Croatian filmmaker, who deals with the topic of cultural amnesia will present her experimental documentary entitled “In War and Revolution” (2011) and answer questions. This short film deals with the personal and cultural amnesia that occurred during and following the war in Croatia in the early 1990s. Her work brings up questions of the possibility of fixing time and memory through artwork.
