The artist presents her new film installation “Zenica Trilogy”, which was realised with protagonists from the cities of Zenica and Sarajevo. Zenica Trilogy addresses social and individual responsibility in the context of contemporary Bosnia and Herzegovina. Once the site of one of the largest steel factories in Europe and the symbol of Yugoslav modernist progress, the period after the Bosnian war has left the city of Zenica facing high rates of unemployment, extreme air pollution as well as a general feeling of resignation among the population.
