Group 143 was founded on 14th March 1975 in Belgrade and represents strictly conceptually oriented art collective in former Yugoslavia. The name is derivation from that date. The initial project of Group 143 was to enable young artists, art historians and certain active participants in programmes of the Student Cultural Centre in Belgrade a common space for improvement of their artistic/theoretic competences.
Within five years of lasting, the group included Biljana Tomić (1975-1980), Miško Šuvaković (1975-1980), Neša Paripović (1978-1980), Jovan Čekić (1975-1979), Paja Stanković (1975-1980), Maja Savić (1975-1980), Mirko Diliberović (1978-1980), Vladimir Nikolić (1977-1980), Dejan Dizdar (1975-1976), Nada Seferović (1975), Bojana Burić (1975), Stipe Dumić (1975), Momčilo Rajin (1975), Ivan Marošević (1975) and Slobodan Šajin (1975).
Artworks by this group relate to the skeleton, the basic structure of “system of art” and represent case studies and metareflections on it. Used mediums are diagram, structuralistic photography and film, performance art, a book as an artwork, as well as educative lecture performances and seminars. The goal was to reach the zero point of expression, to leave behind once and for all art and thought of Modernism and to change paradigms in art.
Therefore, if Group 143 becomes an object of critical reflection today, over 30 years after being founded, several questions arising at the time of post(post)modernism are of particular interest:
- How and in what way do art and conditions for its production change?
- What consequences these changes have upon the social relations?
- In what way is material production of art possible?
