Conversations about New Artistic Practices of the 70s in Serbia

In a series of video interviews Raša Todosijević, Era Milivojević, Dunja Blažević, Ješa Denegri and Jasna Tijardović reflected on the period of the 70’s in Belgrade. This was the period when a new artistic scene, defined by Ješa Denegri as ‘New Artistic Practices’, was emerging.  The focus of the interviews was work within the Student Cultural Centre of Belgrade when some of the most important art projects in the second half of the 20th century in this region were developed.

Fiery Greetings

Exhibition and book project by Kiosk - platform for contemporary art in cooperation with the Museum of Yugoslav History, Belgrade

Museum of Objects

Museum of Objects is an initiative to collect, archive and present personal memories of the Serbian citizens of the 1990s period and to create the public space for a dialogue about the period marked by traumatic changes and events in Serbia.

Family Album

The Family Album project was realised as a participatory artwork, in which our interlocutors got to create representative images of themselves and their families – from selecting the photographs to deciding how the family would be photographed at the end. With this work method, we tried to avoid as much as possible imposing any pre designed image of the Roma community, hoping to make the family members’ stories available to the wide public.

Intersection

INTERSECTION: Intimacy and Spectacle was a special curatorial project of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space in 2009-2012.

Closing Celebration - Mikser Festival 2011

As a starting point, curators chose the phenomena of the Youth Day celebrations and it’s closing ceremony – Slet.

The Culture Lobby

Seven arts organizations throughout the Western Balkans collaborated intensely throughout 2009 in an exchange of local artists whose task it was to talk to random citizens in the cities, towns and villages of a participating country that was not their own. Everyone was asked the same question: What do you think will change or disappear in your everyday life when your country joins the European Union? The answers collected, photographed and displayed are intended as a barometer of the concerns, fears and aspirations of the citizens of this region, who – through their participation – contributed to the creation of an alternative cultural history as an artwork in itself.

Land of Promises

The phrase Land of Promises is usually associated with America. Actually it sounds like the title of the movies and books about this country. Land of Promises also brings to mind some other land and not the one we live in.

StartUp City

Project represents the initiative for reviving the idea of art in public space in Serbia, while supporting the process of decentralization of contemporary art scene in the country.

Communication II

Project is conceived as creative educational program for young in unstable regions with unsolved ethnic problems that could help in establishing the dialogue and communication between the citizens of different national groups.

Communication I

Communication project started in 2005 in the South Serbia region. Nineteen young Serbs, Albanians and Roma from Bujanovac and Presevo were gathered on photographic workshops where, during several months, they worked together on documenting their lives and learning more about each other. The participants were using simple snapshot cameras and color negative films. Workshop focus was put on the creative act of photographic observing and observed while photographic medium was used as a basis for the communication among members of the often divided ethnic groups.

Das ist Kunst

Project Das ist Kunst has been realized in the framework of a research-oriented analysis of the cultural climate in Serbia. Searching for the nature of contemporary art, the authors were having discussions with 81 people, each of them providing their answer to the very same question respectively: What does art mean for you? These answers have been accompanied by the photographs of participants whereas all of them had been photographed while presenting a single object of their possession considered to be a work of art, according to each and everyone’s respective taste and choice. The authors were talking not only to artists, but also to other protagonists of the art system (gallery managers, representatives of organizations and institutions, professors, curators, critics, cultural producers, cultural policy creators) as well as to citizens of Serbia coming from eight cities, being of different ages and of different professions. The result of the research is the publication conceived of their answers and photos.

Age of Innocence

This project initiated by curators Milica Pekić, Milena Grabačić and Katarina Mitrović was dealing with the perception of the past and transformation of images from the memory within the artistic interpretation. In attempt to articulate reality and stabilize the present moment, selected artists used different approaches and media while exploring the nature of memory: sculpture by Marko Crnobrnja, combined technique by Dejan Kaludjerovic, oil on canvas by Igor Marsenic and video by Ana Adamovic.
