国庆节 Nationalfeiertag Special-Editon


Dear Friends, Supporter, Collectors. In October 2011 I started working on my new project »国庆节 Nationalfeiertag«. I travelled to Beijing with Oliver, who wanted to take some portraits of punks for »Imaginary Club«. I myself was quite interested in Tiananmen Square. On the one hand because it’s one of the biggest public squares worldwide and one of the monitored at most. On the other hand I was curious because of it’s historic significance, especially the situation in 1989: the student’s protest in April and May and the massacre on June 4th. We spent some days on Tiananmen Square during as well Chinese National Holiday on Oct. 1st as the following Golden Week and I was able to film some hours of material.

You and Me III


4_DSF4272 Kopie

»You and Me« at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago will be open for the public from jan 26th to march 22nd 2015. Gallery talk / opening reception: jan. 29th from 4pm / 5pm.

Aleksandar Hemon’s essay on »You and Me«: Not so long ago, in St. Louis, a Bosnian named Zemir Begic was beaten to death for no particular reason by four teenagers wielding hammers. He was thirty-two, came to the US with his family to escape war, and had recently moved to St. Louis, the city with the largest Bosnian population in America — indeed, with some 70,000 people, the largest outside Bosnia and Herzegovina. Zemir was murdered down the road from Ferguson, where intense protests had been taking place, triggered by the grand jury decision not to indict the policeman Darren Wilson for shooting Mike Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, in what appeared to be cold blood.
