You are cordially invited to YUtopia, our exhibition at the Intercultural Museum in Oslo featuring a new body of multimedia work developed during our research travels throughout the regions of the former Yugoslavia in the period 20072012. Today, we remember post WW2 Yugoslavia as a polymorphous piece with shifting roles in an imaginary game of ideological chess—a ghost of a utopian desire that continues to haunt fragmented personal geographies. Taking historical facts apart and putting them back together in a different constellation is to challenge stereotypical points of view constituted on certainty. By re-staging three pre-civil war historical and symbolic events in an open-ended cinematic constellation, we reflect on the dialectic nature of Yugoslavian identity—a “byproduct” of one of the most controversial nation-building experiments in the 20th century
