Bojan Fajfrić’s exhibition The Void conveys a specific manner of viewing history by conflating personal memories, collective historical consciousness and the inevitable events, while the use of non-linear timeline in his videos and films often turns them into speculative history.
The only Dobrović’s architecture that has been preserved in Belgrade is the former building of the Ministry of Defence and the Yugoslav Army General Headquarters (constructed between 1954 and 1963). Considered one of the best examples of modernist architecture in the region, the building suffered severe damage during the NATO air campaign in 1999.
Combining video, photography, and collage, Fajfrić’s project addresses the question of how to connect two different events, i.e. an essay from 1930 and the history of a building or, rather, how to interpret an essay through the ruins of Dobrović’s architectural complex.
