Collaborative Project Explores Fine Arts in Balkans

An electronic book that explores contemporary fine arts and theory in the Balkans was released this week as part of a regional project.

The book focuses on artists from Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia and features work from the 1990s to the present.

A wide array of issues is discussed in the book, including identity, workers' rights and the position of women. 

The book also looks at the art scene of the four countries’ capital cities, as is evident in the book’s long title: From Consideration to Commitment: Art in Critical Confrontation With Society (Belgrade, Ljubljana, Skopje, Zagreb: 1990-2010).

The publication is available in a number of different languages and is the result of the regional project Let’s Talk Critic Arts (LCTA). It has involved a vast number of contributors, including Jasna Jaksic, Nebojsa Vilic, Vesna Tasicm, Miha Colner and Nika Grabar.

The book can be downloaded from the LTCA project blog here.

I don't want greedy clergy and ambitious politicians protecting me from the truth about Serbian’s greedy and very secular society.
