TITO 2

The video filmed in an abandoned cinema shows a teenage boy dressed in a militant uniform of the former country The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He belongs to a generation born in the second half of the nineties which means he never lived and experienced Yugoslavia. However, he is fascinated by this particular historical period (1942-1992). In the video we see him imitating the former leader Josip Broz Tito. He is performing a fictional speech that he wrote himself and in which he is addressing the youth. Though the speech the boy asks himself, what could Tito say to the youth today in current precarious global conditions. His performance is informed by learning from images, sound recordings and film footage of Tito's public appearances.
