  • Radio Squared

    November 2004 – June 2005

    Participants in this tree-national pilot project were primarily students from various areas of concentration involved in local radio projects. The four corners of the square in which the project was situated were as follows: historical consideration; the media- and radio-policy dimension; intercultural exchange; partnerships and networking. In the first phase of the project in Erfurt, attention centered around a discussion of common standards of quality in journalistic work. In Limoges, on the other hand – and particularly following the visit to the memorial in Oradour-sur-Glane – the group assigned an important role to the concrete experience of war, and to ways of dealing with war guilt. In Sarajevo, there was a great deal of discussion about the history and current situation of Sarajevo, for instance through meetings with former combatants and representatives of EUFOR. In each phase of the exchange, the young people worked together in trilingual teams to produce a trilingual radio show. These productions were broadcast by participating radio stations.

  • Towards commons in the cities

    Starting April 2015

    With this project we aim at building foundations for a sustained and effective participation of citizens in the process of urban development. Project activities will revolve through two elaborate actions: 1) The Urban watch will consist of a continual engagement in the process of planning through formally available mechanisms and the periodical reporting on most important developments with an aim to inform public and put the whole process under public radar, 2) Neighborhood days will consist of repeated public gatherings in 4 Sarajevo neighborhoods with an aim to construct a common sphere which should serve as a counter force to the ones expressed as corporate interests and political domination. If successful, the project will broaden the knowledge base and enhance the democratic capacity of local communities to take part as important actors in the city governance.

    Team members:
  • City Syndicate

    Starting March 2016

    A concept of City Syndicate comes as an expression of our evolving interest in the multiplicity of urban phenomena and our own transformation in thinking about how can we improve our cities and make them more egalitarian and just. City syndicate aims to work toward building an inclusive platform for participation and collaboration in education, research, actions in and on the city which would include labor organizations, non-governmental organizations, and other groups and individuals who deal, or could potentially deal with issues which tend to affect population beyond the boundaries of their direct reference group. Also, it asks an organizational question and will attempt to explore the possibility of initiating and building an organization around these concerns and through alternative models.

  • Quintessence as Public Space

    Starting May 2017

    The nucleus of my exploration is ether as element of nature and its relation towards humans. Physics and mathematics debated and defined this space even in the pre-science age. Today, in 2017 humanity developed communication systems and overwebed the planet earth with signals and electronic impulses on different levels of the frequency spectrum. There are international legal rules and regulations for using of frequencies, but is frequency really a measure of this space? Who owns the quintessence, legally and economically? How much and for how long humans can exploit the ether? What are medical consequences?
