TRIO Sarajevo Postcards
Design group Trio Sarajevo (husband and wife Bojan and Dalida (Durakovic) Hadzihalilovic and collaborator Leila Mulabegovic Hatt), formed in 1985, was part of the Sarajevo generation which was raised on the punk culture and pop-art movements. Trio Sarajevo opted to remain in Sarajevo during the war in Bosnia, continuing to earn a living as commercial designers. This postcard redesigns the iconic 1969 moon landing by Neil Armstrong and changes his original speech upon landing: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." The American flag is colored in by the artists and looks tattered. An image of Saravejo at war serves as the background.
