D’Art Documentaries is inviting us to the opening of the Fine Art of Mirroring feature documentary held at KIC, Preradovićeva Street 5, Zagreb, on 18 February at 19.00 hours.
Enmeshed in a set of strange circumstances and political schemes, the plot dives into the world of young, alternative artists in the former Yugoslavia who had won at the competition for the design and concept of the so-called Youth Day in 1987. At that time, the Youth Day was the most important State event and symbol of unity and brotherhood of young generations, celebrating the birthday of president Josip Broz Tito, even after his death in 1980.

Laibach SPECTRE digital deluxe album
A new deluxe version of the 2014’s Laibach album SPECTRE is coming on 30 March 2015. This digital deluxe version of Spectre will feature the original album plus bonus tracks and SPECTREMIX, a remix album that will also be available separately on the same date.
Watch the video for No History from Spectre, directed by Vuk Jevremović
Video for No History was made by artist Vuk Jevremović, a big fan of Laibach. Vuk Jevremović was born 1959 in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), but spent his childhood in ex Jugoslavia. Following the family tradition, he studied Architecture at The Technical University Belgrade and graduated in 1984. After spending some time in the navy as a diver, he decided to dedicate his life to art: painting and drawing. He started exhibiting in 1986 and during the following years he was considered as a promising young artist in former Yugoslavia.
His first animation, The Wind Subsides was shown all over the world, and it won 2 Grand Prix and 17 Awards. The next film, inspired by a R.M.Rilke’s poem, Panther, was also successful. It won 15 international awards and came into final balloting for the Oscar award (1998) as best animation short.
Since then, his life has been linked to animation and he has continued to create short films: Diary (2000, Oscar qualified), Faces (2002), Quercus, (2003), The Wheel Turns (2005) , Close Your Eyes and Do Not Breathe (2006), Lux (2007) and Patience of the Memory (2009, Oscar qualified).

Laibach is collaborating with award winning director Milo Rau on ‘The Dark Ages’ theatre production for Bavarian State Theatre / IIPM, Munich. Within this context Laibach will perform a solo Munich show in Residenztheater on 11th April, 2015.
What happens to people when their beliefs and states fall to pieces?
On what foundations is Europe built?
From 1945 to 1995, from the collapse of the Third Reich to the siege of Sarajevo: In the second part of his Europa trilogy, entitled “The Dark Ages”, Milo Rau focusses on the dark history of a Europe in the process of unifying.
Actors from Bosnia, Germany, Russia and Serbia tell their stories of displacement and homelessness, of departure and arrival, of dedication and despair.
As in Rau’s previous acclaimed production, “The Civil Wars”, and accompanied by music composed for “The Dark Ages” by Laibach, its biographical close-ups paint an intimate tableau of a continent which has been broken repeatedly – a political psychoanalysis of our time.
