VREMEPLOV je umjetnički odgovor na video-poruku koju je grupa mladih ljudi poslala iz Sarajeva sa vrijeme rata 1993. godine. Uz puno crnog humora pokušali  su da pomoću vremeplova napuste opkoljeni grad:
 
"Danas je 11. juni 1993. godine. Rat je u mom gradu već dugo. Situacija je neizdrživa. Pokušao sam sve, da se izvučem, da se spasim, ništa mi nije uspjelo. Jedino što mi je ostalo je da snimim ovu kasetu, koju ću dati svom sinu, on svom, i tako redom iz generacije u generaciju da se prenosi ova kaseta sve do vremena kad bude izmišljen vremeplov i tada se nadam da će neko ko bude gledao da dođe po mene da me izvuče iz ove situacije. To je jedino što mi je preostalo.“
 
Clarissa Thieme (Berlin) koncipirala je projekat VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE u uskoj saradnji sa Hamdija Kreševljaković Video Archivom, privatna kolekcija amaterskih videa nastalih za vrijeme rata u Sarajevu (1992.-1996.)

VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE 1993 / 2003 / 2018 / 2037 / 2320 / 2572

Video performance / installation by Clarissa Thieme

In collaboration with the Video Archive Hamdija Kreševljakovic, Sarajevo

„The war has been going on for very long. I've tried everything to get out, to save myself, nothing worked. The only thing left is to make this videotape that I will give to my son, he to his, and so on, until a time machine is invented and someone watching this will come and get me out of this.“

VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE is an artistic respond to a video message sent out by a group of young Sarajevans during the war in 1993. With a lot of black humor they imagine their escape from their besieged hometown with a time machine.

On 11th June 2018 exactly 25 years after the video was sent out Thieme activates the time machine again with the help of a translator. Nihad Kreševljakovic, one of the young Sarajevans videotaping the message in 1993, recites the appeal from the past to Sarajevo 2018. The call “Get me out of this” addresses our present (again). How will we react?

Thieme developed VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE on the basis of an intense engagement with the Library Hamdija Kreševljakoviæ Video Arhiv, a private collection of amateur videos made during the war in Sarajevo (1992-1996).

VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE at the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is supported by Goethe-Institut Bosnien Herzegowina & Böll Stiftung Landesbüro Bosnien-Herzegowina

VREMEPLOV / TIME MACHINE is part of the initiative IZMEÐU NAS / BETWEEN US by Nihad Kresevljakovic, Jasmina Gavrankapetanovic and Clarissa Thieme that invites scholars, artists and the public to work with the Video Archive Hamdija Kreševljakovic?, a collection of video testimonies documenting life under siege in Sarajevo 1992 to 1996. The initiative proposes to create a critical platform to democratize the process of archiving and engage with people’s shared memories.
