MM: Tonight will be your third visit to Bihać. What attracts you so much to this city, or perhaps you’re one of the migrants?
Slavimir Stojanović: Every time I come to Bihać it is as if coming home, and the ones who are to blame for this are Nino Kasupović, the Creative Republic of Bihać and the history of our region. Wherever in the areas of the former Yugoslavia I feel at least an ounce of human kindness, love and tolerance, I return there as if attracted by a magnet, and relive the warmest moments of my childhood, filled with togetherness, openness and belonging to something greater.
MM: Today I’ll contact my numerous family and friends in Bihać to come tonight at 20.00hrs to the City Gallery. What should I tell them? How should I invite them?
Slavimir Stojanović: Tell them to come and have a laugh, or perhaps even shed a tear, because both Goran’s and mine personal and creative emotions lean on those amplitudes – where the heart is restless, where the soul burns its own kerosene, where the ground is unstable under our feet… because only such surface yields the unseen.
MM: Why the tandem with Goran Stojičić tonight?
Slavimir Stojanović: Goran is one of the main culprits for my writing adventure. Reading his short stories on Facebook felt just as if I wrote them myself. On top of that, he asked me later to illustrate them, and design the covers of his book. Actually, I leaned on Goran’s talent, and some of it inevitably brushed off on me. Just like I do posters for Shakespeare. Personally!
