Škart: NONPRACTICAL WOMEN
Exhibition opening: Tuesday, August 24 at 4.30 p.m
The exhibition will be open until the end of the festival.
The Škart collective, consisting of Dragan Protić – Prota and Đorđe Balmazović – Žole, was formed in 1990 at the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade. The core concept of the collective is the architecture of human relations, which the artists implement mainly through poetry and graphic design and by placing great emphasis on alternative education. This resulted in a series of diverse workshops with children and the elderly during the last decade, one of them being this year’s workshop Nonpractical Women, which combines creative writing with almost stereotypical handicrafts of the older generation, pushed to the fringes of society by the pandemic.
The exhibition, prepared by the residents of Tabor retirement centre, will offer sharp verses and harsh socially critical view, embroidered and drawn on napkins. The opening event in the Tabor Park will give you the opportunity to chat with them in the shade of chestnut trees, and the exhibition will be open until the end of the festival.
