The exhibition Tipic_no presents contemporary art by the young artists group Barake from Sarajevo. The title (translated: typical) is an ironic reference to the demand of the foreign art market for a typical art form from Bosnia and Herzegovina: so-called “war art”. Can artists from the small Balkan multiethnic state be “normal typical” artists who deal with issues that they find significant? Would this approach be accepted? The peace agreement of Dayton was signed more than ten years ago. However, in a general view, war is a primary association about Bosnia and Herzegovina. The connection isn’t far to seek: The remnants of war are obvious not only within socio-economic structures but also in everyday life. There are still numerous ruined buildings. The exhibition doesn’t negate the so-called “art war” as it is part of the country’s reality. It rather widens the focus and shows that there is a young, self-confident generation of artists who want to be more than “war correspndents”.
