Vladimir Miladinovic

Miladinovic’s work is inspired and influenced hugely by the events of his past, in particular those that occurred during times of inter­ethnic conflict in Serbia. Whilst embarking on a historical journey of the conflict in Serbia, Miladinovic trawled through the archives of daily newspapers and the International Tribunals for War Crimes. In doing so, he learned for the first time about the existence of concentration camps held by the Serb forces and the Srebrenica massacre in 1995 in Bosnia. Seriously troubled by this news, he began to rewrite the newspaper articles denied to him by the Serb press and simultaneously dissected how these events were documented by both the local and international press. He now questions the validity of the current collective memory and has skillfully re­written newspaper articles informed by his research efforts by hand using a beautiful ink wash drawing technique.
