Three Points Of Support: Zoran Bojović / Conversation about the book
Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art, 14 Pariska street
May 14, 2014. at 6 pm
Participants in the conversation: author of the book Dubravka Sekulić, art historian Branislav Dimitrijević and architectural historian Vladimir Kulić, with the presence of architect Zoran Bojovica. Book was published by the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Among one of the well known stories of Yugoslavia was the story of Yugoslav construction companies building extensively in African countries. While most of the people knew someone who knew someone that was working on some of the projects, either on construction site, or as an engineer, no one knew, or even bothered to get to know more about what was actually built, beside the generic notion of damns, highway, roads, and some other buildings. Newspapers reported on those project routinely, in the discourse best described by often used phrase “another achievement of our builders”, focusing on quantities of work and money earned, while professional architectural magazines were ignoring the subject. Energoprojekt was one of the most prominent of all construction companies working in Africa, Asia and Middle East, not only in comparison with other Yugoslav companies, but actually with other companies in the world. Among architects working in Energoprojekt, the work of Zoran Bojović stands out, both in his approach and the sheer size of the projects he was in charge of.
The aim of the exhibition and book is not to show the vast and diverse opus of Zoran Bojović as an architect in its entirety, but to situate the practice of Zoran Bojović, the architect, in the wider context of the postcolonial development of Africa and global South; the internal and external dynamics of the Non-aligned Movement, as the third part of mostly bipolar Cold War world with the rest of the world; competitive world of global construction industries that “Energoprojekt” was important part of until the end of 1980s, and the impact all those forces had on his architectural practice, and more widely, the intellectual and architectural labour coming from Non-aligned Yugoslavia.
