Room 2 | Dea Dzankovic | Kopfkino

Kopfkino is a site specific immersive installation that explores the topic of fragmentation by combining ready made elements with video and sound. Kopfkino juxtaposes an intensely red environment with floral Edenesque installation aided by a video piece that parallels this approach by combining jarring video elements with a soothing form of a guided audio meditation. […]

Room 3 | Ráðhildur Ingadóttir | Vortex

In the years 1997 – 2000 I made some projects where I used clothes as a medium. Drawings and texts were printed on fleece garments, and these were then presented and distributed in different ways.

Rooms 13 & 26 | Teodora Nikolic

Despite all the differences among people, skin is something that each of us own. Cadres of the presented skin are chosen by my inner feeling and they all come from different parts of the body, whereby I intentionally contrast the tightness of the folds on the real skin with the performance of the same motif […]

Rooms 14 & 28 | Lidija Delic | Two rooms

My practice is predicated, both conceptually and structurally, upon an inter-medial exploration of a set of relations between (my) subjective internal processes and spaces that surround me.

Room 19 | Daliborka Djuric | La pastorale

Romanticized Wheeler’s tapestries were found in most of the houses I was in when I was young, as a symbol of happiness and balance of one family. At the same time, it was a symbol of luxury, considering that the schemes were expensive, and the work itself required a lot of free time. Today, I […]

His exhibited work includes a tapestry and paintings from the series A Well Kept Secret. As templates for this works, mythological and religious scenographies and motifs are used, but with the eviction of actors from canonical images.

Room 21 | Tadija Janicic | Spring Walk | Offender

The works exhibited are a part of series created during 2020 Covid-19 quarantine which I spent with my family at Palic lake.

Room 22 | Tamara Tomić-Vajagić in collaboration with Lena Melentijević and Arabella Stanger | Come into our room: a soft oral history of the Hotel Beograd

The Hotel’s socialist-era transition into a nationalised lodging, managed by the Jugoslovenske Železnice, intersects with the history of its surrounding area locally known as “Štajga”—socialist Belgrade’s seedy part of the city, with the sole openly erotic cinema (Partizan). But, what part did the Hotel Beograd play in Štajga’s and the city’s history? Aiming to find […]

Room 27 | Rade Tepavcevic | Santa Claus | Santa Claus in Trouble

By giving animals the characteristics of a person to send the message more clearly, Rade Tepavcevic’s paintings can be interpreted as fabels and in this way, he allegorically paints the relationship between people and animals (dogs). Sometimes, the text occures on the paintings and the form of the text is often concise in ofer to […]

Room 29 | Nebojša Yamasaki Vukelić | Architect of the classless society currently out of employment wandering Utopia

I think my works come from two opposing drives – the need to escape reality and at the same time the need to articulate a critical stance towards it.

Room 36 | Aleksandar Jevtic | Escape Room

Escape Room series is a crying game for the lost city deserts. Every urban spot is tagged, labeled and sold. Wherever the money’s coming from it brings malignant growth.

Rooms 40 & 42 | Nikola Garovic

His work is based mainly on drawing, but tends to explore all other mediums. Collecting the objects that surround him by using different bases, formats and techniques, they become entangled with his thoughts.

Rooms 41 & 54 | Martina Yordanova and Galya Krumova Presenting Ivan Moudov

In his project “Paintings for hotels and music for elevators” the artist puts his finger on a very common yet strangely neglected issue: public buildings interior.

Room 47 | Veljko Vuckovic | Unfinished Business

Worn out compromises − inside-out demises In my research of the painting medium, I deal with the problem of using already existing visual performances as my starting points. In this case, it’s about frozen footage from two political movies by Costa-Gavras – Z (1969) and State of Siege (1972). Such “archeological” approach is reflected in […]

Room 59 | Jovana Jovanovic

My original inspiration is drawn from traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e woodcuts and the elements of contemporary manga/anime aesthetics but it’s also accompanied by the street art culture. The idea of flatness is here to place the characters into the relation of equality in the bright-colored world of optimism. I try to create my characters mainly pure […]

Room 60 | Bogdan Djukanovic
