Blue Train takes its name from the luxurious train of the former
president of the former Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, which was
popularly called 'Blue Train' because of its color, considered also
the country's national color. Constructed immediately after the
WWII, Blue Train made more than thirty years of constant touring
around former Yugoslavia, almost covering the entire Tito's
presidency and becoming a symbol of an era. In Blue train, Tito
visited and made public speeches in almost every city in promotion
of proper political ideas, until his very death.
By putting in confront the realism of a night landscape and the
'fictional' (artificial) image of an imaginary landscape, Blue Train
wishes to create a space made of dichotomies and overlapping
between the real and the ideal, between the intimate experience
and the collective imaginary, "here and there" of the reality and its
continuous slippage in the past condition.
