Mirage_intro is the first Mirage issue that Doplgenger realised with Serbian and French artists during 2006. Mirage _intro presents two pilot phases done with the support of French group Autour de Peter. Work was based around the themes of Serbian and French historical friendship and alliance, confrontation of similarities and differences in cultural heritage. Structure’s frame was established around the main motifs from traditional tales – Serbian “Zlatna Jabuka i devet paunica” and French “Les pommes d’or” – through which artists tried to question the processes of creating the cultural stereotypes.

Work was divided into two parts – the first preparation and presentation was done at in Students’ City Cultural Center in Belgrade; the second phase was realised and presented in both in Association Ciel Ouvert and Centre Intermondes, France.

Participating artists (alphabetical): Priscilia Boussiquet (FR), Jadranka Bugarski (SRB), Francois Delime (FR), Celine Girardeau (FR), Jugoslav Hadžić (SRB), Jovan Ljubenović (SRB), Maja Medić (SRB), Jelena Radenović (SRB), Amandine Roy (FR), Ana Popović (FR), Miljan Prljeta (SRB), Mathieu Vigier (FR).
