Intention of the Sarajevo part of the Balkan Konsulat project, is to presented this new art scene developed after the war including Bosnian artists living in the country or abroad whose works are reflecting the social and political situation, and artists from the region who are in different ways connected with Sarajevo, both influencing the scene and influenced by it. Creation of this new scene is closely connected with the activity of the Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Arts, founded in 1997.
The works of the artists presented at the exhibition are dealing with different issues which are at the same time specific for the country with war experience and global, such as: problem of displacement and notion of a home (Sejla Kameric, Danica Dakic); consequences of the war (Vanda Vukicevic); closeness and fear of death (Aleksandra Vajd); fears and feelings caused by living in urban surroundings (Lala Rascic); isolation and impossibility to integrate to domestic (Slaven Tolj) or foreign society (Kristina Leko).

Archive presented in Balkan Konsulat café will be comprised from selection of video works, films, catalogs, and artist's documentation from and about Sarajevo.
