Lecture by prof. Dr Nikola Šuica, exhibition curator and mini concert by LP Duo - Sonja Lončar and Andrija Pavlović
The exhibition Scales of Anatomies is based on artworks from the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade: a few of these are from the 'Zenit' movement, the collages of Serbian Surrealism as well as photographic pieces from the late 1920s with their discovery of the secret mechanisms of relations. It continues with examples from the postwar period as epitomized by the neo-figurative allegories of Leonid Šejka (1932-1970) and Radomir Reljić (1938-2006), both of whose works from the late ‘50s and ‘60s, paintings and objects, take the structuralist approach to its peak revealing the hidden meanings in ex-Yugoslavian visual arts. The self-evident notion of the polarization of tradition in the European East - West culture is represented through the issues of ideology, the grotesque, spiritual preservation and memory, by artists from Hungary, Romania and Austria.
