Bogomir Doringer

Bogomir Doringer grew up in Yugoslavia as it began to fragment. He nevertheless managed to experience and collect traces of the country’s unique culture. Film introduced him to methods of portraying a layered understanding of hidden horror, human destruction and finally, injustice. Having grown up in this environment and having witnessed the loss of human values through war, he was inevitably led to a life of critical thought and deep examinations of socio-political issues, which he chose to explore through film and art. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy where his work was nominated for the best graduation work and graduated cum laude from the Master of Film program of the Nederlandse Film en Televisie Academie. In his projects, he works with fabricated socio-political issues represented by mass media that he finds intriguing because of their content or the way in which they are treated by media or society. Doringer starts his work from media fabrications, and use them as a basis to challenge the relationship between fiction and reality. In this respect, Doringer takes fiction as something temporary, something that has an expiry date. He sees himself as a storyteller of ‘unwanted stories’. His recent project "Hospitality" on which he have been working for the last 4 years is stressing the problem of ex-military and military personal who after coming back from their missions and interventions is suffering from different kind of diseases due to exposure and use of the depleted uranium munition. By interviewing these people he gives a voice to all those who live in bombed areas.
