BELEF 08 - Visual Art Program

Undisguised preoccupation of BELEF 08 is how to change the visible countenance of the city through artistic intervention and leave the marks of the summertime festival events in everyday customary paths of passers-by, transforming them into permanent artistic exhibits.

Taking advantage of the visual art’s possibility to turn the act of creation into an event for the audience entailing its participation, this year’s visual art program is using metropolitan public venues as artistic workshops and studios – the places where works of art are being born before the eyes of the members of the public and chance passers-by. Such an approach serves the purpose of deepening the relationship between an artist and an observer, establishing in the process communication with the passer-by, directly involving him/ her in the artistic event.

Through artistic interventions in the urban tissue of the city, year in, year out, BELEF could become the chief contractor for the works intended to reshape the city as a large gallery and a work of art. To the extent in which Belgrade manages to win over prominent international figures, but also new talents, the city will transform itself into a gallery whose streets, squares and parks keep a collection of precious works of art.
