Art in the Balkans - Dead Man's Coat

by Hajdana Baletić

Wednesday 16 November 2005 - Saturday 3 December 2005

Vera lives in an apartment in post-war Belgrade. She is bullied by Nenad, who claims the missing owner, Jovan, is presumed dead and the apartment is his by right as it had been snatched from his grandfather by the ‘communists’ in the first place. Then a man returns home. He is the keeper of a terrible secret.

Apart from a dead man’s coat, everything else seems unreal, like a dream, like a nightmare. After the war, the abyss, the void.
