Work has been developed in the framework of Modernism for the Future / Kaunas Capital of Culture 2022.

Papagalo, what’s the Time? explores the architecture of the former Yugoslavian pavilion from the Brussels World Expo (1958) in its current function as Sint-Pauluscollege. The film follows a group of kids playing old Yugoslavian children’s games at the building. The camera moves from outdoors to the interior spaces, along the hallways from floor to floor exploring the building together with the group of children. The work creates a poetic exchange between the modernist architecture and the contemporary function of the building, between the moving bodies and solid walls.
