Without a Proposition for a Concrete Solutionfocuses on the idea of friendship by starting out from a postcard, written in Serbo-Croat, that Ilić’s father had received from a young Egyptian man as a gesture of friendship. This postcard revisits the time of the Non-Aligned Movement of which former Yugoslavia was an integral part, and reflects on how connections between the many countries that were members also influenced relationships between individuals. Referencing both image production as well as implied systems of values and beliefs, Ilić layers different historical moments and personal encounters, questioning the extent to which an individual can orchestrate his/her own decisions, relationships and choices. This complexity is framed in terms of generations, geopolitics and class. Referring to this, Ilić poses the question as to whether, within our current social framework, an individual may still be willing, or able, to invest time, knowledge and emotion to create a space for solidarity and commons that far transcends the values and representatations of present day corporatism.
