Helem Nejse

The chess players are an institution in Sarajevo. The game is going on the whole day, every day. The mostly elderly men are used to being photographed by tourists, who are not familiar with and thus fascinated by this public chess culture. This is such a typical Sarajevo-scene that you wonder, why no real postcard exists of this famous chess game. Anyway with our Postcard Session featuring the up-and-coming hip hoppers Helem Nejse we want to change this! Whatever happens outside of the chessboard – even if it’s an impromptu hip hop performance right next to them – the chess crowd doesn’t seem to mind.
