Differentiated Neighbourhoods of New Belgrade

The project explores different connotations of the term neighborhood, in the vocabulary of its urban, architectural and social context, and it analyses the historical development and actual dynamics of urban transformations of the neighbourhoods of New Belgrade.

The project comprises of two parallel sets of events:
  • Series of presentations and lectures at the MOCAB by members of the research group, as well as guest experts throughout 2006/2007.
  • Workshops, research and artistic project by members of the research group coming from different fields such as sociology, urbanism, architecture, art history, visual arts, philosophy that will address the thematic issues of the project from the perspective of their disciplines.

The theoretical subtext of the project was Henri Lefebvre’s idea about the possibility to create differentiated spaces (neighbourhoods) in opposition to neo-capitalist homogeneity. The context of socio-spatial transformations in Serbia was important for the choice of Lefebvre as a reference, as the onset of neoliberal capitalist ventures in the urban core of Belgrade, and especially in New Belgrade, had the side effects of homogenisation and segregation in urban spaces, which effectively produced a situation that was similar to Lefebvre’s examples.

The research team focused on the processes of urban restructuring through gentrification but also ghettoisation that were happening in some of the New Belgade blocs. On the one hand, New Belgrade has a problem of a loss of the public space that was never fully developed and is now overtaken by big supermarkets and shopping malls. On the other hand, the new segregation, which is driven mostly by economic, social or even racial distinctions, has created new homogenized neighbourhoods and even new ”urban ghettos”. Particularly important for the project was to conduct a research in the blocs where marginalized social groups are fighting to achieve spatial justice.
