Ars in Actio Festival, Belgrade, Serbia (2008)
Well I was back in Serbia
for another Open World-Open Mind Festival in July 2008
but under another label, "Ars in Actio" (Action Art Festival, Belgrade).
The last time I saw Dobrica, he was throwing insults in my direction after
being in his presence for about 3 days and for the rest of my stay, I stood clear
of him. This time was a repeat performance and I won't bore you with the details.
He was the artistic director of the festival.
Great audience at the
University Housing Complex.
After the show, I gave away about 20 cd's*
