“Manual of Participation” reveals diachronic timeline of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The viewer gets an insight of how someone born in Bosnia and Herzegovina recognises time. The chronological line is broken into pieces, scattered before, during and after the Balkan War in the 90s. The ones who lived those chapters, or still are immersed in them, might name the three times as : “the time of organised sacrifice”, “time before the end”, and “time of hope”. The decomposition of chronology makes the experience of people from Bosnia more familiar to the viewer, and most importantly reveal how the community there, or any community can grow strong together and, on the other hand, segregate and isolate each other easily due to political power struggle.
