“If people would know how little brain is ruling the world, they would die of fear.” ― Ivo Andrić +++ “Forgetfulness heals everything and song is the most beautiful manner of forgetting, for in song man feels only what he loves.” ― Ivo Andrić +++ “One shouldn't be afraid of the humans. Well, I am not afraid of the humans, but of what is inhuman in them.” ― Ivo Andrić +++ “Between the fear that something would happen and the hope that still it wouldn't, there is much more space than one thinks. On that narrow, hard, bare and dark space a lot of us spend their lives.” ― Ivo Andrić

  • Short synopsis

     Words from Ashes is a documentary on the famous writer, diplomat and Nobel Prize winner in Literature Ivo Andrić, which will be reflecting on today’s perceptions of his life and work in the region of Southeastern Europe, focusing primarily on Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia. In addition, this film project will question the writer’s socio-political engagement by discussing his role in different ideological environments. By doing so, we would like to point out that today's interpretations have been neglecting his very active role in both Yugoslavias, while mostly they are being shaped and influenced by the national contexts in which they are appearing. We have envisioned this historical review as a sort of an introduction into the main focus in our film project, which is the perception of Andrić and his work within and between different national environments.

  • Idea

    Events in the former Yugoslavia in the late twentieth century prompted a large number of young people to search for better educational opportunities in Austria. Since the University of Graz has a special focus on various sets of issues regarding Southeastern Europe, many citizens from the Balkans have chosen Graz as a place for their academic and professional development. In that way, the students from this region were given a chance to take a closer look into the political, legal, economic, linguistic and other issues concerning Southeast Europe. Many started to follow, and partially join, projects related to the Balkans, having thus the opportunity to grasp the complexity of the social situation in the region. The importance of this region as well as the importance of the town of Graz correlates in some way with the life and work of Ivo Andrić.

  • Andrić and Graz

     After spending a few months in Trieste as a Vice-consul for the royal consulate, Andrić arrived in Graz in January 1923. The time he spent in the Styrian capital was of particular importance for him, since alongside his duties as a Vice-consul for the Kingdom of Serbs, Croatsand Slovenes, Graz is a city in which he completed his PhD on the cultural history of Bosnia under Turkish rule. According to a letter from 1923, Andrić was the only employee in the Consulate, and the fact that he was not especially burdened with work duties, allowed him to write a number of poems and publish his first collection of novels in Graz. His place of residence was in Merangasse 24 (this information is available in the archive of the University of Graz), whereas the consulate was located, according to Andrić' letters written in 1923, in Schuberstrasse 16 (next to the campus of ReSoWi center).

  • Objectives

    The project aims to examine current perceptions of Ivo Andrić and his work. The topic that will be discussed in the documentary already exists in a form of public discourse in the Balkans, however, through a visual intrerpretation we would like to bring it closer to the wider audience. Moreover, certain issues regarding both Andrić and post-Andrić perceptions are still obscured, and through a discussion with relevant experts, we will try to shed some light on these questions.
