As much as someone likes it or not, as much as we want to admit it or not, this piece of the planet formed one historical, cultural, economic and artistic whole long before it was given a new, fancy name: The Western Balkans. Now, with a new name, it resembles a problematic student who is constantly being called out over the school loudspeaker and who they would rather expel from school (a pity, because it does have potential); it smokes in the school toilet during class, tries to figure out what it will do with its life and, most importantly, what the hell is it doing at school when it is hundreds of years old and is loaded with knowledge and experience?
