Hotel Jugoslavija

Audio Tracks

Erected in Novi Belgrade in 1969, the Hotel Jugoslavija was a mythical place. It was both a symbol and a witness to the different moments that shaped former Yugoslavia: From Tito to Milosevic; from Socialism to Nationalism; from NATO’s bombings to corrupted economic liberalism. Today, it is still haunting Belgrade landscape, as a reflection of a Serbian society in search of new milestones. With this journey through the times and spaces of the building, the director – of Yugoslavian origin by his mother but born and raised in Switzerland – explores both a collective unconscious and a part of his own identity.
