Good Children Gallery is proud to present 'That Passes Between Us' an international group exhibition featuring work by Lana Čmajčanin (BA), Jim Finn (US), Ivan Grubanov (RS), Sophie Lvoff (US), Maha Maamoun (EG), Marko Peljhan (SI/US), Ahmet Öğüt (TR/NL) and Nebojša Šerić Shoba (BA/US).

Since it's completion in 1979, D-0 ARK (acronym stands for 'atomska ratna komanda' - atomic war command) was one of the largest underground facilities built in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to protect up to 350 individuals in the case of nuclear warfare. Buried deep in the side of a mountain in the town of Konjic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, it has been kept untouched and functioning. Last year the bunker opened its doors to the public in an event that was announced as the first biennial of Contemporary Art in Bosina and Herzegovina: D-0 ARK Underground 'No Network'.

'That Passes Between Us' revisits this ambitious curatorial project selecting some of the work exhibited in Konjic, expanding with projects that deal with reality and past of Bosnia and Herzegovina and bringing them into a dialogue with works that share mutual concerns of exploring a contemporaneity braced over the triple edge of failed political projects, utopian fictions and strategies of tomorrow. Borrowing from the bunkers pre - apocalyptic mood this exhibition focuses on terrors of military prowess - from Cold War tensions, Balkan massacres, violence, revolutions and the societies these events leave in their wake. The images offered address the past with a message of urgency that talk to the present and imagine the future, at an end of an era, in the light of our rapidly changing social and political environment.
