15.07.2016 : Striking Contrasts

Borgholm Castle at Oeland/Sweden was mentioned first time in 1281; becoming later a famous renaissance castle and finally a barock palace in the 17th century. In the 19th century it unfortunately burned down - but its fragments are still an attraction promoted by the local city marketing as a historic monument.

This historic location was in summer 2016 the Genius Loci for a joint exhibition of the Swedish Neon artist Hans Frode and his Japanese wife Tokiko Ishiguro Frode who is an Origami artist - and who is at the photo with Prof.B.Hallier explaining her Stag Bettle exhibit

20.08.2013 : Nobel Laureat I. Andric

Ivo Andric (1892-1975) was born in Travnik - at that time capital of Bosnia. He studied in Zagreb, Vienna, Kracow and Graz. After World War I he worked in the Zagreb National Council uniting Serbs, Croatians and Slowenians for the Kingdom of Yugoslawia. In 1961 he became Nobel Laureate of Literature for his novels about historic happenings in Bosnia.

"Describing the human feelings and mental conflicts in the time before World War I especially at this meeting point between Orient and Occident is perhaps also today a major key to understand the situation at the Balkan . Andric could be called a pioneeer of intercultural conflict analysis" Prof.Dr.B.Hallier stated after visiting the birth place of the Nobel Laureat during his visit of Vitez University (link)

15.09.2016: CIRCLE PhD Seminar

An obligatory part of PhD program at the Virtual college CIRCLE International (housed at the University of Vitez, BH) is the completion of oral comprehensive examination and defence of the thesis proposal in front of the committee. This year the CIRCLE PhD-Seminar took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which offered participants a great travelling opportunity to Balkans.

Alina Pukhovskaya (CV) visited the PhD-Seminar in Vitez and shared some impressions from the trip: "Bosnia and Herzegovina due to its geographical location had been repeatedly involved in major historical events such as the World War I (assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo) and the World War II (multi-ethnic resistance groups lead by Josip Broz Tito). Also it had been under the influence of different empires Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian and never lost itself but adjusted, taking the best out of the new cultures. However, the Bosnian War (19921995) caused so much pain and destruction that up to today every detail brings back the memories of the terror. Both photos are taken in the same city Mostar, which combines beautiful (renovated) old city and bombed business center."
