Bogomir Doringer

Artist exploring fabricated socio-political issues represented by mass media.

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 programme of the Nederlandse Film en Televisie Academie. While studying art, he noticed that his projects tended to translate the construction of the film narrative. He would arrange elements of his projects as if they were on a film timeline and then extend them within the physical space, instead of on the screen. This way, the spectator of his work could move through the work.

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. Depending on the subject that Doringer is working with, he will choose the medium to express himself. Doringer’s projects work on different platforms, divided in elements that can work independently or together, thus confronting different groups of participants. This way, he hope it will lead the audience to think about or discuss the questions that his work poses. He sees himself as a storyteller of ‘unwanted stories’.
