Jon Blackwood: B&H has a very strong art scene

…I think the arts were always here in terms of the artists we have working in the city; the arts are very strong with artists like Adela Jušić, Lana Čmajcanin, Lala Raščić, and Emina Kujundžić. They are incredibly talented, high quality and active artists, which I think is important. Beyond that group, there’s of course Duplex with its international linkage, there’s a group of artists that surround Charlama… Jusuf Hadžifejzović is an extremely important figure in European art history. He’s a good example – everyone in Sarajevo knows about Jusuf, they know who he is, and what he looks like, but they don’t know anything about his art…

Why coal does not only kill the climate

Sarajevo, 17.04.2014.

Association for Culture and Art CRVENA, Dolina 5, Sarajevo.

Coal is not only the worst climate killer. Coal kills already at the beginning of the supply chain. Coal mining causes huge social and environmental disasters all over the globe. Whole mountains are blown away in the USA, peasants get expelled in Colombia, rainforest is destroyed for coal mines in Indonesia, millions of people lack drinking water in South Africa because of coal mining…

Paul Corbit Brown comes from West Virginia in the US where Mountaintop Removal Mining is still practiced by coal mining companies. Paul will explain what this brutal mining method does to the people and how it destroys one of the most beautiful landscapes in the USA.

Sebastian Rötters lives in Berlin and will explain where the global coal mining hotspots are, who benefits from it and why coal from Colombia is burned in Croatian and Slovenian power plants. He´ll also inform about existing anti coal networks in Europe and why a success of Germany´s energy transition would have such a big impact even outside of the country.

Presentation and discussion (in English) will be held on Thursday, 17th April 2014. at17:30, in the office of Association for Culture and Art CRVENA, Dolina 5, Sarajevo.

Please let us know that you will attend the presentation on list.fest.sarajevo@gmail.com

ZOOM Sarajevo. Positionen zeitgenössischer Kunst

KünstlerInnen: Azra Akšamija, Igor Bošnjak, Adela Jušić, Nihad Nino Pušija und Damir Radović
Kuratorin: Andrea Naica-Loebell. Künstlerische Beratung: Nihad Nino Pušija

Sarajevo ist ein Mikrokosmos des Balkans und beeinflusste immer wieder ganz Europa. ZOOM Sarejevo holt die bosnische Hauptstadt ganz nah heran und zeigt ihre Bewohner als unsere direkten Nachbarn. Vorstellungen und Realität überlagern sich im Wechsel von Näherkommen (Zoom-In) und Entfernen (Zoom-Out). Die Ausstellung präsentiert Videoarbeiten, Fotoserien und Installationen von Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die – alle in Sarajevo geboren – heute Kosmopoliten und in der internationalen Kunstszene zu Hause sind.
Die Arbeiten fordern die Auseinandersetzung mit Vorurteilen und Klischees ein, bilden die Vielschichtigkeit der Realität ab. Azra Akšamija lädt zu einem Besuch in einen islamischen Schilderwald ein, und entwirft Kleidung, die eine tragbare Moschee darstellt. Igor Bošnjak entziffert in seinen Videos die futuristischen Aspekte, die sich in Titos Atombunker offenbaren, und hinterfragt die Free Hugs Campaign. Adela Jušićs Videos erzählen intime Familiengeschichten, die den Zeitgeist und die politische Rahmenbedingungen in Erinnerung rufen. Nihad Nino Pušija setzt sich in seinen Fotoinstallationen mit dem kollektiven Erinnern an das Attentat von Sarajevo 1914 auseinander, indem er den Alltag vor den Denkmälern (was heute noch von ihnen übrig ist) einfängt. Damir Radovićs Banner künden vor den Türen des Gasteigs als eine Art Leitmotiv der Ausstellung vom Verschwinden (nicht nur) Jugoslawiens, und fragen in der Stadtbibliothek nach dem Wesen der Dinge und der Kunst. Er ist als Artist in Residence in der Villa Waldberta zu Gast und wird ZOOM Sarajevo zusätzlich mit einer Performance ergänzen.

24. März bis 10. April 2014

POZIV NA ŠETNJU, 16. mart 2014. u 11:00_GRADOLOGIJA

Udruženje za kulturu i umjetnost CRVENA i LIFT prostorne inicijative vas pozivaju na učešće u programu GRADOLOGIJA kroz:

Kolektivnu šetnju gradom

16. Marta 2014 sa početkom u 11:00h.

Polazna tačka šetnje je ispred zgrade RTV Doma, poznate kao “Sivi dom”.

Prijedlog šetnje će vam predstaviti Boriša Mraović, gradski entuzijast amater

Kolektivna šetnja je dio programa Gradologije koji se bavi ispitivanjem značenja javnog, zajedničkog prostora i njihovog odnosa u gradu Sarajevu.

Broj učesnika/ca za šetnju nije ograničen ali je poželjna prijava.

Za učesnike/ce obezbjeđeni su hrana i piće, kao i potrebni radni materijali.

P1150070
“Hvala ti Bože što sam Al’ipašinac” – grafit na neboderu, B faza, autori: Manijaci 1987

Cilj šetnje je zajedničko otkrivanje predjela grada koji su rijetko dio šetačkih ruta. Šetnja je zamišljena kao svojevrsno putovanje kroz vrijeme i prostor tokom koje svako od nas stvara svoj zamišljeni grad koji ćemo oslikati skicama, foto aparatom, zabilježiti video kamerom, opisati pričom ili pjesmom. Tokom šetnje ćemo evocirati naša sjećanja i iskustva vezana za ovaj dio grada, posmatrati promjene koje su se desile i podijeliti naše zamisli, vizije i želje. Za one koji se prvi put upuštaju u istraživanje ovog dijela grada, šetnja će biti prilika da ponešto nauče, uporede svoja znanja i riješe se predrasuda koje evenutalno imaju.

Specifični ciljevi šetnje su: odgovoriti na vječito pitanje: koja je A, koja je B, a koja C faza i otkriti, svima onima koji još uvijek nisu, jednu malu oazu na 15 minuta hoda od mitskog Alipašina.
Trajanje šetnje je od dva do pet sati.

Izmedju 13-14h je predvidjena pauza za ručak.

Preporučujemo vam da obučete udobnu obuću i ponesete fotoaparate ili pametne telefone!

Radionica i šetnja su otvorene za sve. Molimo vas da popunite formular za učešće na ovom linku.

Vidimo se!

Srdačan pozdrav,
CRVENA/LIFT

8 mart/8th of March 2014 poziv/invitation

*english below

Tačno prije 104 godine, na konferenciji socijalistkinja u Kopenhagenu, prihvaćen je prijedlog Klare Cetkin “da se 8.mart zavede kao dan borbene solidarnosti žena, kao dan koji će povezati sve žene svijeta u borbi za svoja prava i punu slobodu čitavog naroda”. Tri godine nakon ove konferencije, 1913. godine u Sarajevu, žene Bosne i Hercegovine su održale prvu “Proslavu ženskog dana” na kojoj je učestvovalo oko 2.000 žena.

Od tog dana, pa sve do danas, borba za politička, socijalna i ekonomska prava žena traje, a svaka pobjeda predstavlja novi korak na putu ka jednakosti. Često se te pobjede osporavaju i zanemaruju. Prava koja su jednom ostvarena ponovo se dovode u pitanje, a na svom borbenom putu žene su iznova susreću sa novim/starim preprekama. Ove godine po drugi put zaredom, na svoj četvrti rođendan,  pitamo se: Šta je nama naša borba dala?

Neka živi Osmi mart, međunarodni praznik žena!

***********************************************************************

Exactly 104 years ago, at the Copenhagen conference of women socialists, Klara Cetkin’s proposal “to claim the 8th of March as a day of active solidarity of women, the day that will connect all women of the world in the struggle for their rights and full freedom of all peoples.” Three years after this conference, in 1913 in Sarajevo, women of Bosnia and Herzegovina held the first “celebration of women’s day” which was attended by about 2,000 women.

From that day until today, the struggle for political, social and economic rights of women continues, and every victory represents another step on the road to equality. Often these victories are challenged and neglected. The rights that were once achieved are again being questioned, and through their struggle women are again faced with new/old obstacles. This year, for the second time in a row, on our fourth birthday, we ask ourselves: What has our struggle given us?

Long live the 8th of March, an international women’s day!

One Billion Rising Letter from Eve/Milijarda ustaje Pismo od Eve Ensler

Pismo Eve Ensler onima koji će protestno plesati 14. veljače/februara:

Dragi moji,

Pred nama su još dvije sedmice. Ove godine ustajemo za pravdu. Mnogi/e su mjesecima radili kako bi sve bilo spremno za još jedan protest. Neki su se tek priključili protestu dok su drugi već organizirali ustajanje na različitim mjestima – u školama, pred religioznim objektima, u kvartovima, tvornicama, kućama…Ustajemo zajedno, s lokalnim grupama, koalicijama, ili pak s najboljim prijateljima i prijateljicama.

Organiziramo protestno plesanje na trgovima, ispred sudova, rudnika, vojnih baza, univerziteta, polja. Protestirat ćemo tijelima, srcima i umovima.

Neki će plesati na pozornicama, u parkovima ili dvoranama. Neki će motivirati tisuće, neki pak svoje najbliže. Uključit ćemo muškarce i nove aktivističke grupe. Nekima će trebati hrabrosti da se pridruže bar jednoj od ovih grupa, da podijele svoje priče, ili plešu u javnost i – čak i kada tim činom riskiraju svoje živote. Neki se ustati kako bi liječili svoje rane, drugi kako bi ih artikulirali.

Svako ustajanje je dio kolektivne odlučne predanosti da zaustavimo nasilje na ovoj planeti, koje je traumatiziralo tijela djevojčica, djevojaka i žena; nasilje koje je od nas ukralo dio moći nad našom životnom snagom i vrijednosti.

Svako ustajanje je ples povezivanja, zajednički poziv protiv rasne, ekološke, ekonomske i spolne/rodne nepravde.

Ne možemo ne uspjeti!

Važno je ustati, imenovati nepravdu, protestirati svojim tijelima i obavezati sebe i svoju zajednicu na protest.

Da protest postane, 14. februara, kao i svaki sljedeći dan, naš život, dok nasilje ne prestane.

Svako ustajanje za pravdu je pritoka rijeci pravde, struja nove paradigme, nezaustavljiv val, koji se formira snagom i ohrabrivanjem globalne solidarnosti.

Neka nas ovaj val odnese u ljubav.

Vaša Eve

   

Dear Risers…A Letter From EveDear Risers,We are two weeks away. Many of us have worked for months to prepare for our risings for justice. Some have just found out and signed up and some have created a rising in their school, center, place of worship, their block, in their office, factory, home or bedroom. Some are planning with coalitions, others with local groups, some with their best friends. Some are organizing to rise in squares, courthouses, mines, military bases, college campuses, fields. Some in their bodies, hearts and minds. Some are dancing on stages, others in parks, in squares, in prisons, in auditoriums. Some are working to bring out thousands, others just their close circle. Some are engaging men and new activists. Some are gathering the courage to join any group at all, or release their story, or dance in public or in the streets which would, could mean risking their lives. Some are rising to release their wounds, others are rising to articulate them.Every rising is part of a collective energetic decision to end the violence on this planet that has traumatized women and girls’ bodies and robbed us of the full capacity of our life force and value. Every rising is a dance of connection to end racial, environmental, economic, and gender injustice.There is no way to fail.

What matters is that we rise, that we name the injustice, that we commit with our bodies and our communities that this rising on the 14th, like all the days that lead up to it and all the days that follow it, is our life.

Each rising for justice is part of the river of justice, the current of a new paradigm, an unstoppable wave, joining us through the strength and encouragement of our global solidarity.

May this wave lift us and unite us. May it take us and surprise us.

May it move us into love.
