PAST IS NOW in Sarajevo

From January 30th to February 26th 2016 the Fotodoks exhibition PAST IS NOW is on show at the Umjetnička galerija Bosne i Hercegovine in Sarajevo. The opening as part of the Balkan Photo Festival was a successful kickoff for this year's touring exhibition through the countries of former Yugoslavia.

Tour

Part of the Fotodoks team was on site in Sarajevo to install the PAST IS NOW exhibition, which was for the first time presented in new premises after the Munich City Museum. Our sincere thanks for the successful cooperation goes to our partners from the Goethe Institute and the Balkan Photo Festival, which enabled us to jointly offer an accompanying program for the opening.

Ziyah Gafić and Paul Lowe were invited to speak with the Fotodoks team about the potential of documentary photography, Merlin Nadj-Torma and Vladimir Miladinović gave insights into their exhibited work and Hans Herbig, Sophia Greiff and Armin Smailovic led the audience through the exhibition.

The next stations of the PAST IS NOW tour will be Zenica (BiH) in February and Trebinje (BiH) in April.
