Runtime: 10 minutes
A conversation develops between two personified subtitles: poet-politicians; one red, the other white. Their subject, persona and voice are abstracted and confused as they discuss literature, religion, nationalism and philosophy. Images recorded by people in Sarajevo under siege, in the early nineties, are transformed into a visceral, poetic, and dark audiovisual space. The End of History is a montage of this transcoded appropriated footage. While some invoke iconic images of Sarajevo under mortar shelling, others are computer generated and the sound entirely follied.
