The tradition of industrial design in Bosnia and Herzegovina is more than a century long. The first record is related to the year 1904 and the mention of "a Persian painter" who was in charge of preparing paints and drawing patterns for weaving in the Sarajevo carpet. Since then, in the field of design, the following have left their visible mark: Ćiro Truhelka, Adem Nikšić, Hamdo Sijerčić, Zdenko Praskač, Živojin Vekić, Zlatko Ugljen, Ivan and Tihomir Straus, Božidar Lapajne, Šemsudin Mulić, Rodoljub Mikulić, Nafa Galičić, Selma Arnautović and Salih Teskeredzić.

    Ugljen has succeeded to bring together grand gesture and a reasonable ground plan and the exterior, to introduce a great measure into the interior spaces commensurable with the man.

  • Edward Lucie Smith

    Famous art critic about Mersad Berber

    Berber draws with a fluency and confidence that has almost entirely disappeared from the art in Western Europe and the United States.

  • The slogan I ❤NY went beyond any expectations I had of its reach.
    For reasons that are not fully understandable, it’s still everywhere.

  • At that time, foreign books were very expensive in Yugoslavia. In one of my visits Nikola Konstantinovic proudly showed me his new trophy, the book Milton Glaser – Graphic Design.

Museum in exile - Bosnia and Herzegovina in the modern era

The beginning of creation of the Museum in Exile collection dates back to 2009. Several friends from Travnik donated to the author of this idea, Professor Asim Đelilović, the first exhibits from their private collections.

The Museum in Exile was first presented to public in April 2015 in Sarajevo. This is when the first Bosnian and English editions of the book titled Museum in Exile - Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Modern Era were published by the Dobra Knjiga Publishing House in Sarajevo. The content of this first edition determined the character and objectives of the Museum in Exile.

The first and most important activity of the Museum is to create a collection of documents, books, publications, artefacts and products. In a relatively short period of time, thanks primarily to Mr Ladislav Slavko Maksimović from Sarajevo, the collection grew to several thousands exhibits. With its content in the broadest sense of the term it documents the cultural scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the modern era, with special emphasis on the emergence and development of design in the country.

Cooperation was established with numerous individuals active in the fields of culture and design, both in the country and abroad, while cooperation was also established with domestic and foreign institutions in the domains of culture, foundations and museum that gave an added value to the collection. Another important activity is focused on the promotion and presentation of the collection.

Through all its activities, the Museum in Exile tries to be a platform that provides the most important information about developments in design in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The establishment of the collection, its constant enrichment, public presentations and exhibitions, dissemination of information and periodical publications remain its key objective.
