In September/October 2010 I was invited by mediainmotion for a stipend at MediaScape in Zagreb.
Day by day I was strawling around the foreign city.
After three days I realized that my way was daily crossed by a guy with a red suitcase.
So I decided to follow him. After a while I realized that all his places to go were somehow related to Art.
I followed him to the Ministry of culture, the Museum of Contemporary Art, to the HDLU, a round artbuilding in Zagrebs old city and different little galeries in the heart of the city. I became his shadow for two weeks. Without knowing he showed me around the city. We never talked to each other.
I left Zagreb without knowing anything about this person.
It remained a secret what he carried in his red suitcase.
