From yu to me
‘From yu to me’ tracks the history of the Internet in the former Yugoslavia and specifically the involvement of female Internet pioneers Borka Jerman Blažić and Mirjana Tasić. Blažić, the President of the Internet Society in Slovenia, is the founder and first general secretary of the Yugoslavian Network for the Academic and Education Community, which introduced the first Internet services in the former Yugoslavia in 1991.
The administration of the ccTLD was then taken over by Tasić amidst Yugoslavia’s regional wars. The video comprises both archival and interview footage with Tasiπ, Blažić, and Belgrade-based art historian and curator Ivan Manojlović, and resulted in Domanović’s accidental discovery of an unusual Yugoslavian contribution to science: the Belgrade Hand.
