Interweaving Art / Outside the Centre

The ‘Interweaving Art’ performance, which is scheduled for Saturday, August 20, has been POSTPONED due to weather conditions and you can follow all information about this program on the official channels of the Bel Art Gallery and in the media.

The performance is being implemented as part of The Danube Sea programme arch.

19:20 – 19:40 / Performance / Petrovaradin Fortress Tunnel

The ‘Outside the Centre’ project includes 4 exhibitions, 3 art events and a diverse educational programme. The exhibition will present the works of important participants in contemporary artistic events from the countries of the Danube region (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, and Serbia). The title ‘Outside the Centre’ indicates the phenomenon of current art functioning outside the big cities: in the current ‘iconosphere’, contemporary art is no longer directed only towards the concept of ‘centre’, but also towards the margins, that is – smaller cities, outskirts, rural areas… It is another confirmation that Beuys’ maxim ‘art = life’ is still true today in the most diverse variations – from artistic, to sociological and geographical-spatial terms and areas.

The concept of the exhibitions envisages presenting the art of authors who represent minority nations in the mentioned Danube countries. Such a choice of artists indicates the intertwining and coexistence of people in united Europe, but also the functionalization of art as a cohesive universal practice. The selectors for choosing the participants of the four exhibitions will be Serbian artists Dejan Kaluđerović who lives in Vienna, Szombathy Bálint who resides in Budapest, Olja Stefanović-Triaška from Bratislava, and Milovan Destil Marković from Berlin. In their environment, they will choose artists from the local minority national communities or ‘guest workers’ from the Danube countries, thus creating a unique impression of the intertwining of different cultures co-existing in the Danube region.

In accordance with the concept of the ‘Outside the Centre‘ exhibition, the decision was made to present it in places in the immediate vicinity of Novi Sad, in ‘zone 021’ (Sremska Kamenica, Sremski Karlovci, Čerević, and Irig), because these are the places where many of the members of various minority national communities live alongside Serbs. Locations of exhibitions and art events were chosen based on the criteria of their role in the cultural and historical heritage.
