Sarajevo’s War Surrealists

Sarajevski ratni nadrealisti During the siege of Sarajevo, former members of the popular TV show Top List of Surrealists gathered and initially broadcasted a radio program on Sarajevo Radio in 1992, and later performed stage plays for Sarajevo’s citizens during 1993 and 1994. The stage plays consisted of sketches and parodies on the subject of daily life under siege.
During 1994, a TV series Surrealist Top List was recorded, in which these sketches were screened. The humorous presentation of the everyday lives of people in besieged Sarajevo was a way to preserve the spirit of the city.
