Vanja Jelic & Rasmus Schoenning – AUTONATOVETO
Diploma project with Ludovic Balland, Gilles Gavillet
As part of an attempt to unify Bosnia, NATO decided in 1998 to change the licence plates indicating the region into an anonymous combination of letters and numbers. The system was undermined by drivers proud of their ethnicity, who found ways of accessorising their cars with stickers and other insignia. On our journey through Bosnia we collected videos, photography and archive material to document the development of the different identities. This book is a documentation and research into how people responded to the western attempt to unify the diversity within Bosnia.
