Mix media exhibition and discussion

“From the Periphery” exhibition displays works done in the summer of 2008 in two workshops of the Art Interventions program, “The Return of the Gastarbajters” in Požarevac and “Sex in Transition” in Kucevo. In each workshop participated around 20 artists as well as  international scholars, coming from Serbia, Germany, USA, Italy, Sudan, Austria, and more.

In both workshop the artists worked closely with the local communities and exhibited in public spaces.

Art Interventions is an interdisciplinary program that brings together local, national and international artists and scholars to disadvantage communities in order to identify socio-economical-political processes that are taboo in the community and find, through community participation, innovative ways to deal with them.
