Are you able to look towards the future and reconstruction? Or is it too early? --Do you want to reconstruct the city as it was it before? --For you, what are the architectural symbols of Sarajevo? What has happened to them? Are they able to be restored? --Or do you forsee a new modern Sarajevo? --Would you like foreign architects to come and build there? Or is there a nationalism in architecture? --There is little work for architects here. Do you have any work for a Finnish architect? FROM:Reuf Kolude, architect in Sarajewo,
TO:Pekka Littow, Finnish Architect I would appreciate a direct E mail contact, but now I'll try to answer some of your questions: _ Interiors are renewing right now, not the way we would be glad to see, because Sarajevo has already some standard, being an university center. -- For building and reconstructing, some ideas are being discussed, but there will be some more war und destruction before Sarajevo earns to start building itself. -- Symbols of Sarajevo can be restored, and should be upgraded I hope. -- Heritage and new concepts must live together -- Of course we would like everybody to be present here, no nationalisme as an idea, cause it is like a small room with no doors. -- There will be a lot of work, but its a question of money, investments. Right now there is some work and money in Mostar, thanks to the European Union, -- Address directly by E-mail * Questions from Sophie Cabannes, French architect, Paris --Are there woman architects in Sarajevo? ----Are you able to hear of architectural trends outside of Bosnia? --Do you feel that your architecture is European? Or is there something special about Balkan architecture? FROM:Reuf Koluder, architecte de Sarajewo, TO: Sofie Cabanne -- I am a male architect, diplome a Sarajevo, 1967. Nous etions 150 et 50 femmes parmis nous, au moins. Ma fille, 23 ans, Ètudie l' architecture. -- Maintenants c'est un peu difficile de recevoir les revues etc, mais normalement il,y avait beaucoup de revues de toute sorte, On Ètait completement au courant des nouveaux trends. En 1963 j'ai passÈ pas mal de temps a Paris, Je travaillais chez Francis Bouygues, en tant qu'etudiant, bien sur. -- L'heritage est different, les desires sont les memes, je pense. * Questions from: Matthew Kennedy <email@example.com> To Whom It May Concern- My name is Matthew Kennedy. I'm an American student. I'm earning my degree in Political Science from Fort Lewis College, Durango, Colorado. I expect to complete it by August. I'm taking a year off, and returning to Fort Lewis College in August 1996 to work on a 2nd Bachelor's degree in history. In both degree's my area of emphasis is the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. I'm currently working on an Independent Study on the Nation-State and the History of Yugoslavia. I have some questions: - How did Marshall Tito influence the history of what is the former Yugoslavia? - How was he able to hold together a country of a variety of different ethnic and religious groups? - And how did his governing style impact Bosnia-Hercegovina? My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Matthew Kennedy FROM:Adil Kulenovic TO:email@example.com I am a director-in-chief of the Independent Radio and TV Station called "Studio 99" in Sarajevo and soon we are starting a newspaper also called "Circle 99".I am also a journalist and a professor on the University of Philosophy in Sarajevo teaching sociology and philosophy. Marshall Tito influenced the history of the former Yugoslavia very positivly .His ideology is something that can be disccused about ,but practical policy gave good results.In 50 years of his rulement we had 50 years of peace and more freedom then today nationalistic parties are offering us.Of course,we today dream about different ideology(of human rights) which will be fullfiled one day. This governing style made impact on Bosnia and Herzegovina in two ways.On one side it was positive- when we speak about the national freedom and rights of Muslims(for the first time they could declare themselves in public as Muslims) and the negative impact is when we speak about Bosnia's identity as a state and when we speak abot democratic culture of citizens. ---------------------------------------------------------- From: Zoran Illich, Studio 99 Sarajevo To: Nottinghill Dear friends, This is short story about Studio 99. Studio 99 is private company and its owners and founders are 16 journalists. From the very beginning of the war Independent Radio Studio 99 has been operating constantly, 24 hours a day. With its program and edit policy it is aimed to the citizen as our state sovereignty holder. Even when the other media have been turning down, Studio 99 continued, although it is based on marketing and market relations. During the very first baricades on March,1992 all the employees decided to work without salary, out of the wish to help the fight for Bosnia. Currently, there are 55 employees. Independent Radio Studio 99 started work on 27 December 1991. In the prewar period, financing was based on market principals and commercial market relations. Due to the collapse of market and market relations, STUDIO 99 started to work mostly for free, doing different service activities for citiziens ( connecting families, helping wounded persons via radio, telephone services etc.) In April 6th, 1995, at the very beginning of the war, a group of armed and masked members of paramilitary formations destroyed the editing room and by force stopped the transmission of programs. The day after,"STUDIO 99" started working again. Out of spite. Programming was adopted to the new war situation. They open contact program with other non-govermental radio stations all over ex Yugoslavia and provide information about happenings in Sarajevo. In that way, they exert the influence on public opinion. In May, 2nd 1992,rooms of "STUDIO 99" suffered shelling, and due to danger, the radio moved to an un-heated, wet, small basement. Since then, in an improvised studio room this radio has been broadcasting 24 hours a day. In spite of the usual problems with electricity, employees of "STUDIO 99" maintain transmission. When a single grenade hit the transmmiter(250 w), everything went out of order. Afterwards, we managed to rent a transmitter(50 w) from Bosnian, Radio and TV, signing the contract with them. In July,1993, that transmitter was taken by force., Afterwards, "STUDIO 99" stopped it's transmission for almost two months. In the meantime,with help of several Sarajevan businessman, "STUDIO 99" has bought its own, new transmitter( 1000 W) that covers wider territory (100 km around Sarajevo ). Workers at "STUDIO 99" work on the concept of living together in the city of Sarajevo and Bosnia-Hercegovina. Their affiliation is the entire Bosnia-Hercegovina. They do not accept any partition. This attitude is also expresed by "STUDIO 99"'s listeners. Because of this, in the interest of all Sarajevans, workers of "STUDIO 99" have broken many important stories. When the special reprensetatives David Oven and Thorton Stolthenberg, came for talks with the Bosnian president and Sarajevo's mayor and dividing the city, the talks have been held behind closed doors. "STUDIO 99" first proclaimed it and agitated on the conscience of the citizens, who were against those intensions. Then just before the Geneva talks, in December of 1993 when the unity of Sarajevo again came into question, the radio gathered a response for intellectuals and about 6000 citizens. "STUDIO 99's" morning program provides listeners with all service information, "the interview of the day" in which a famous person from public and social life is grilled, along with guests from abroad (American and French ambassaders in Bosnia, UN generals Morillion, Briquemont, Rose and other UN officials). The news of "Studio 99" at 5 p.m. has a large audience because of it objectively informs the public. The night program is therapy-like, and also has a large audience. Every evening at 9 p.m., "Studio 99" covers live, Radio France Internationale (RFI). News and at 10 p.m. Radio Free Europe. Although they often come under the different pressures, workers at "Studio 99" always stay on the basic course. A great number of Sarajevan intellectuals have gathered around the Radio. The name of this organisation is the Association of Independent Intellectuals "CIRCLE 99". At this very moment in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina there is a open fight between totalitarism and democracy. Studio 99 is for democracy. Studio 99 has just started broadcast TV program on 1st of February 1995. Ciao, Zoran FROM: Sead Fetahagic writer Circle 99 TO: Brigitte Bardot, Paris Dear Madame Bardot, I admire you work very much and your battle for preserving dignity of animals. The human hand is very rude to those poor creatures for example: whales, penguins and monkeys. I would like very much to be a part of you work but this cage that I live in, called Sarajevo does not enables me to do that. I must inform you that animals are very endangered here. They suffer very much here because there isn't much food and man eats that little humanitarian food that gets here in this human Zoo. I would like to invite you to be my guest in my ruined apartment and see for yourself how cats and dogs live here. If you could see it I'm sure that you would do something. Thankfull in advance. FROM: Miralem Corbo TO: Damir.Koboevic @ Public. Srce. Hr 0duvijek sam se uzasavao elektronike, cak i glas u telefonskoj slusalici zvuci cudno. A sada komuniciramo putem ove mreze u kojoj poput otvorenog prozora ulijecu zvuci, lica, rijeci, rijeci, rijeci. Danas je prvi put posljie tri nedelje osvanulo sunce. Isao sam na fakultet, tamo nema nikoga, razbijeni prozori gledaju na Grbavicu, svuda pustos. Drago mi je sto si nasao stan, jos je davno Dostejevski rekao: Covjek bez svoje sobe je covjek bez psihologije. Ova poruka ide iz firme u kojoj je tvoj otac radio. Pozdravi sve iz Sarajeva, drago mi je sto tako dobro stojimo u Zagrebu. Prije 3 4 dana iznenada se ukazo Bajramovic Semir iz Stoca. I on te je pozdravio. Trenutno je u istocnom Mostaru. Ispuni mi jednu zelju: Napravi jedan krug Zagrebom za mene. U nadi da cemo se ipak nekada vidjeti. Puno pozdrava Milarem I was always terified by electronic noises. Even a voice by phone sounds strange. Now, we are comunicating by this network which is like an open window for sounds, faces, words, words.. Today is the first time we have sun after three weeks. I went to the university. Nobody was there only broken glass with a view to Serb-held Grbavica, in ruins. I am very glad that you have found an apartment. As Dostoyevski once said/ Man without a room is like man without identity. This message is broadcasted from the firm your father used to work in. Say hello to all the people from Sarajevo who are now in Zagreb. The only wish I have is for you to walk around Zagreb for me. In hope that we will meet again one day. Miralem. FROM: Miralem Corbo TO: To whom it may concerns We are not seperated by space or what is happening here. Time seperates us. I also have one question for all of you reading this: Do you know what burns fastest? The answer is: The wood an old lady brought from hill Zuc! FROM: Lejla Cisic TO: Nele Karajlic Belgrade Dragi Nele, nema tu puno rijeci. Ja sam samo jedna od onih koji su odrasli uz tvog Abida, Murgu, nalazila sebe u Pisonj i Zugi. Kao toliko Sarajlija. Kao sto si i ti bio Sarajlija. Sam si izabrao da vise ne budes. Zasto? Ja i dalje zivim uz tvoje pjesme. Tebe pitam samo- zasto? Lejla is writing to once very popular leader of a band Zabranjano Pusenje who is currently living in Belgrade/ At the beginning of the war, he said, this is not his war! Now in English: Dear Nele, words are meaningless for saying this. I am just one of those who grew up with your Abid, Murga. I found myself in Pisonja and Zuga (persons in band's songs). As all Sarajevans did. You used to be a Sarajevan too. You decision was to stop being one. Why? I still live with your songs. I can only ask you - Why?
