Eagles, Army Headquarters and Football Films – a chronology of dispossession

Since 2014, I have been photographing particular sites of Belgrade’s ever-changing urban landscape that show a condition where conflict, economic speculations and historical revisionism have disrupted and damaged not only the physical environment and infrastructure of the city, but also the social and cultural networks.
This photographic series documents the role of architecture in politics, war and in the media, by locating it as “material witness”. It highlights trauma while at the same time ordinary life around it is uninterrupted.
These specific sites do not represent only trauma from the past but also are emphasizing the “trauma in making” that will fully be experienced in the future.
It seems that this process is unstoppable and its duration unknown. Thus, my project will go on documenting and archiving in an attempt to provide visible steps and processes that are carrying particular kind of future.
