European context of the Serbian Surrealism/The project presentation
Serbian Culture Centre/Centre culturel de Serbie, 123, rue Saint Martin, 75004 Paris
September 21, 2013. at 8:30 P.M.
The speakers at the presentation: Aleksandra Mirčić, author of the project (MoCAB), Jelena Novaković (PhD, Professor) (Faculty of Philology, Belgrade), Milanka Todić (PhD, Professor) (Faculty of Applied Arts and Design, Belgrade), and Bojan Jović (PhD) (Institute for Literature and Art, Belgrade).
The basic idea behind the project European context of the Serbian Surrealism is to make use of the available resources from collections, funds, archives and libraries keeping the artworks or documentc related to Surrealism, in as professional and comprehensive way as possible. The project’s main goal is to initiate research, gathering and presentation of the body of legacy related to the Serbian and European Surrealism at one place, with a special emphasis on research, education and communication.
The Belgrade Surrealism is an exceptional and important art phenomenon in our culture. It originated in close relationship and in paralel with the Surrealist movement in France, but also developed its own particularities, and came to hold an important place in the context of the European Surrealism. That is the reason why the presentation of the Serbian Surrealism is extremely valuable in the general framework of the European Surrealism studies.
The Museum of Contemporary Art brought together in this project the most relevant institutions in Serbia engaged with keeping the original artworks or devoted to the research on Surrealism: Museum of Applied Arts, Institute for Literature and Art, National Library of Serbia, National Library in Bor.
This project is supported by Art Mentor Foundation (Lucerne), Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, and the Secretariat of Culture of the City of Belgrade.
