“I think that the buildings always sound. They can sound unemotional too.”  Peter Zumthor Our identities are no longer fixed to a specific place or time. As we have become  increasingly transient, what we call home today is more than likely a different location  from our home ten, or maybe even five years ago. As a result, who we are is no longer  tied to where we live, who we know, or even what we’ve experienced, but is instead an  amalgam of all our own experiences combined with the experiences of others shared  through various media & contexts. As our identities are becoming more complex and  our relationships with each other are more interconnected, what impact does this have  on the relationship between architecture and experience, or surrounding architecture  and the our personal fragile mind/body? How Yugoslavian socialistic architecture  shaped & influenced my personality (mind & body)? Ongoing project which try to map  and signed mental & memory points from past to future as one particular mind archive.  mixed media: photos / sounds / smells / thoughts / sights / 2013
The effect that the architectural environment and the places were we live has on our thinking and on our personality was the starting point for Igor Bošnjak for his  ongoing photographic series. The straightforward title – How socialist architecture shaped & influenced my personality? – contains what is the shared experience of the  postsocialist countries, precisely that the total change of the system does not mean necessarily the change of the architectural environment. This way, the buildings become  imprints of the past, and they show unerasable formal aspects of a certain era’s mentality and view on society. On Bošnjak’s photographs, which are installed like a timeline,  we see the places, buildings where he lived and studied, creating a continuation between different periods. Despite their objective manner the collection is a personal  summary, and it’s deepest layers could only unfold for the artist himself.                                                                                                         Flora Gado, Budapest
