Author of the project, sculptor Veljko Zejak, initiated this project as a self-organization of artists in collaboration with various cultural institutions and curators aiming to create a kind of creative art network. This way, we try to realize the project in the different cultural and production conditions using the same thematic issues. The realization of this project in the form of a residency and exhibition events was held in 2010 in Belgrade (SKC Gallery, the French Cultural Centre, Pavilion Cvijeta Zuzoric) in 2010 and 2011 at the Museum of Too Modern Art, Slovenia and 2011, the Galerie La Vitrine in Paris. Leading idea that is present from the very beginning of this project is the usage of subjects/ abandoned objects that contain information about their usage and in the same time are subjects of personal memory.
Along with the host artists from Berlin, a group of artists from Eastern Europe will participate in the project: Serbia, Slovenia and Estonia. There are going to be thematic lectures organised at the faculty Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee as well. Artists will present their work, project and discuss about the art scene and the specific conditions for production and development of contemporary art practices in the countries of their origins. One of the specifics that is developing increasingly and globally, but in the area of Eastern Europe has its own uniqueness, is the self-organization and the collaboration of artists on the principles of agricultural cooperatives from the era of socialism. In this sense, the project will present artists from art associations Third Belgrade; MOBA Banatska Dubica; Inex film, Belgrade; Container Art Gallery, Tallinn and guest from Berlin – Milchhof Pavilion. Those principles of association arises Utopia, decentralization and relocation of art from the traditionally mainstream defined framework. This is an art that is being developed in the city suburbs , factory complexes or in rural areas at the eastern edges of Europe.
