Rosa, the Death of a Composer Drawings

In 2000 the group of Belgrade based artists and theorists founded Walking Theory. Our first theory performance looked like series of theatricaly performed fragments of lectures. Mine was partly based on concept of the death of the author, and theorization of Andriessen's and Peter Greenaway's horse drama "Rosa". Alleged conspiracy against composers inspired visual artist Sinisa Ilic to make few drawings.

Belgrade Archive 2004

These days I am back to my Belgrade archives. In 2004 Louis Andriessen was in Belgrade together with Gilius van Bergeijk, Bernhard Lang and Jasna Velickovic, where their lectures and pieces were part of Composers in First Person festival. You can see photos from this event here.
I made few more pictures:
