On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Culture and Sports and on my personal behalf, I am expressing my deepest condolences to his family, colleagues and admirers of his work”.

The artistic breakthrough of the “Zvono” Group, of which he was one of the founders, involved unconventional activities and going out into the public space, be it  exhibitions or performances that they did in football stadiums and on the banks of the rivers.
