In 1992 a wave of refugees from the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina reached Denmark. With the existing refugee camps completely full, the Red Cross pulled a giant ship into the canals of Copenhagen. The ship, Flotel Europa, became a temporary home for a thousand people waiting for decisions on their asylum applications. Among them was a 12-year-old boy, Vladimir, who had fled Sarajevo together with his mother and older brother. Two decades later, he takes us on the journey of growing up on this ship filled with echoes of the war — and other things that make up adolescence.
Vladimir Tomić was born in 1980 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2009 he graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He lives and works in Copenhagen. His art films play out in the field of contemporary art and experimental documentation. The universal and human tension caused by the changing structure of society is often at the center of his work.
