This work was inspired by the Drawing on the Wall that Branko Stanojevic found in a basement room of the house which used to be Bogdan Bogdanovic’s Village School of the Philosophy of Architecture from 1976 to 1990. After the school was closed, over its long history of decay, the house became Free Space for refugees, football players, hunters vagrants.
