“Bosnia And Herzegovina Searching For Lost Identity”, 2006 – 2009 is a media and cultural project, consisting of several different segments. It is unique in its research, cultural and phenomenological orientation.
The project is based on a series of documentaries and fictions, which study the subject of country’s identity from an author’s point of view. They were broadcast on the BiH public Television. Some of them were selected for international film festivals.

An additional segment of the project is a series of visual artists’ works based on the same subject and conceived as personal statements / messages for public dissemination in the form of postcards (posters, billboards).
