<< remineralizacija >> is a collaborative performance that took place among various sites of metal mining in East Serbia. We deconstruct extractivism by reversing its logistics: instead of digging, we return copper back to the earth in an act of peace-making and regeneration. Through the interaction with scientists, technicians and workers, metal is recycled, recrystallised, smelted, and laid back into the Old Pit in Bor, where copper is intensively mined for more than 100 years now. As the film rolls slowly, it is a stark reminder of the violence of high technology, and a summoning of counter-extractive alternatives.

mirko nikolić is an artist, researcher, and organizer, often working in groups and collaborations, currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Culture and Society, Linköping University, Sweden.
