Film Premiere: FLOTEL EUROPA by Vladimir Tomic.
In connection with the solo exhibition Remembering the Nowhere by Vladimir Tomić, Galleri Image hosted the Aarhus premiere of Vladimir Tomić's award winning film FLOTEL EUROPA.
About the film:
In 1992 a wave of refugees from the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina reached Denmark. With existing refugee camps completely full, the Red Cross pulled a giant ship into the canals of Copenhagen. The ship, Flotel Europa, became a temporary home for a thousand people waiting for decisions on their asylum applications. Among them was a 12 year old boy, Vladimir, who fled Sarajevo together with his mother and older brother. They spent two years in the limbo of Flotel Europa. Two decades later, Vladimir Tomić takes us on a journey of growing up on this ship filled with echoes of the war — and other things that make up an adolescence. The coming-of-age story is juxtaposed with personal VHS archive material shot by refugees who shared the “space-time vacuum” of the Flotel. 
Running time: 70 minutes. Language: Bosnian with English subtitles. Written and directed by Vladimir Tomić.
Time & Place: February 13th at 2 pm at Aarhus Academy of Art, Vestegade 29, 2nd floor.



The seminar focused on how in particular photography and literature can interpret and rethink urban space aesthetically, and artists, poets, architects, and researchers from all over the world will discuss the relationship between art, architecture, and the urban environment.
This all-day seminar offers a program which includes the architects Quentin Stevens (AUS) and Tom Nielsen (DK), the researchers Louise Mønster (DK) and Elisabeth Skou Pedersen (DK), the artists Hyun-jin Kwak (KR/SE), Tom Lovelace, and Julie Boserup (DK), the visual artist, poet and writer Christian Yde Frostholm as well as the poet Søren Ulrik Thomsen (DK). The program also includes two panel discussions under the direction of Claus Peder Pedersen, director of research at Aarhus School of Architecture, and Jesper Rasmussen, artist and former headmaster of the Jutland Art Academy, respectively.
