Sarajevo Istanbul Belgrade Ankara: All these four cities shared a common past under the Ottoman Empire, and all underwent a period of accelerated modernization and urbanization in the decades before and after World War I when they were incorporated into the new Republic of Turkey and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia respectively. This project conducted by Prof. Nataša Mišković, Joël László, Milanka Matić and Yorick Tanner, and in collaboration with Prof. Mehmed Akšamija, Cengiz Kahraman, Dr. Ranka Gašić, Miloš Jurišić, Goran Knežević and Kristina Ilić, explores the social, cultural, political and urban development of these cities in the interwar period, focusing on the work of local press photographers.
In its extension year, the SIBA project was offered the unique opportunity to produce an experimental documentary film in cooperation with experienced director Lordan Zafranovic. The film 'Zeitgeist' (Duh vremena / Zamanin ruhu) narrates the interwar history of post-Ottoman cities visually, based on a consecutive flow of historical photographs. In other words, it literally explores the SIBA cities through the photographers' lens. The travelling exhibition "Cities on the Move - Post-Ottoman" has met with amazing interest by both visitors and media in Serbia, Bosnia and Turkey, with unsual coverage in the media and further demand to show it outside the capital cities and in other formerly Yugoslav states. In spring 2019, it will travel to Graz, Ljubljana and Zagreb.The edited volume 'Nation, Body and Visuality in the Post-Ottoman Urban Space' is based on contributions by selected participants of the conference 'Cities on the Move - Turkey and Yugoslavia in the Interwar Period', which took place at the University of Basel from 14 to 16 September 2017. It is in preparation with Berghahn Books.
