The exhibition presents examples of unstable and emancipatory artistic practice, from avant-garde to contemporary, media and post-media art.
The MILKY WAY exhibition encompasses the works of over 50 artists and art groups from Novi Sad, Serbia and the international art scene throughout history, but also including the relevant contemporary artistic practices. The open form of the exhibition implies the integration of various media, procedural and interdisciplinary research, performance and collective action, real and digital space intervention, debate and exchange, all with utopian and socially critical attitudes.

Some of the pioneers of media art and activism will be presented for the first time in Serbia. Among them is the American artist Bill Viola, a pioneer of video art, who influenced the global development of video in art and pop culture with his forty-year artistic practice of creating ambient installations. Then, the works of Hermann Nitsch, who was a leading figure of Viennese Actionism, and the works of the radical performer Pyotr Pavlensky. The audience will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the life and artistic work of Ulay, one of the first creators of Polaroid photographs, as well as performances realized through collaboration with former partner and artist Marina Abramović.

The need for mutual networking and connecting, evident in the laws of nature, exists also in art scenes throughout history and in different, often distant geographical places. The avant-garde processes, as the initiators of artistic experiment, innovation and freedom of artistic expression, have marked the artistic and social history of Novi Sad, hence the question arises of preservation of the achieved values in the local environment, its visibility, as well as its connection with similar, important regional and international research, as well as their closeness to contemporary media and post-media practices.

The exhibition presents examples of unstable and emancipatory artistic practice, from avant-garde to contemporary, media and post-media art. For its starting point, it refers to the results of The Continuous Art Class project of Centar za nove medije_kuda.org focused on mapping the social and artistic history of Novi Sad all through the presentation of a network of protagonists and references, through artistic, social and political theory and practice, which all influenced the Novi Sad neo-avant-garde in the 1960s and 1970s. For this reason, the central part of the exhibition is the “Media Ontologies” map, as the key segment of The Continuous Art Class project, which presents the project’s research methodology and covers the field of historical avant-gardes from the beginning of the twentieth century, through the post-war neo-avant-garde, all the way to contemporary artistic media production. The exhibition continues to develop by broader perception of local and international practices, by presenting other projects of specific mapping of the art scene, such as the East Art Map by IRWIN group, social and interdisciplinary positioning visible in the work Sociaty Portraits by Uroš Đurić, the radio podcast Femkanje by Bojana Knežević and Katarina Petrović, psychogeographical mappings of the diSTRUCTURA, and network mappings present in Vladan Joler & Kate Crawford’s projects.

How can we establish a dialogue today and connect the values of the complex phenomena of historical avant-gardes, neo-avant-gardes and possible post-avant-gardes? How important is resistance to the existing systems in art, society and technology for the development of critical artistic practice and how present is it as a reflection of dissatisfaction with imposed, default and established dogmas, prejudices and taboos? Also, do conservatism, nationalism and xenophobia, contrary to the avant-garde cosmopolitan and supranational spirit of connection, strengthen in the conditions of the current closed and isolated society?

The project MILKY WAY was conceived as a public segment of the work of the Centre for Intermedia and Digital Art MSUV, focused on mapping, affirmation and presentation of intermedia, interdisciplinary and hybrid approaches to art, as well as the continuation of the introduction of new functions of the Museum in relation to various processes in contemporary culture. Professional associates on the project: Zoran Pantelić, Centre for new media _kuda.org. In addition to works from the MSUV Collection, the exhibition will present works owned by other institutions, organizations, artists and their families (Centre for new media _kuda.org, Museum in Smederevo, NITSCH FOUNDATION, Vienna, LIMA, Amsterdam, BILL VIOLA Studio, New York…). As part of the exhibition, there will be several side programs, film screenings, audio and video performances, and guided tours through the exhibition.

The exhibition is organized within the program Other Europe, Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture in 2022. MSUV is patroned by the Provincial Secretariat for Culture, Public Information and Relations with Religious Communities. The exhibition is supported by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia and the EU-Japan Fest from Tokyo. We thank the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade for the technical support.

Sept 9, 7PM 

The Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina

Opening of the exhibition: Friday, Sept 9, 7PM

Duration: Sept 9 – Oct 5 2022.

Curators: Sanja Kojić Mladenov, PhD The exhibition TOMORROW IS MONDAY comprehends a presentation of artworks of the esteemed neo-avant-garde artist Dragoljub Raša Todosijević, who was among the protagonists of an informal group of Belgrade conceptual artists. During the sixties and the seventies, they took a radical turn from the ideology and practice of social modernism, choosing new artistic trends emerging locally and around the world instead. These – at the time – young artists (Marina Abramović, Era Milivojević, Neša Paripović, Zoran Popović, Gergelj Urkom) gathered around the Belgrade Students’ Cultural Center and sought new forms of artistic expression to explore. Among others, these included video-art, performance art, action, and installation, and their common goal was to provoke and re-examine the structure and the functionalities of the current practice, as well as of the social context of the time. TOMORROW IS MONDAY (2022) is Dragoljub Raša Todosijević’s first retrospective exhibition at MSUV and it comes as an opportunity to comprehend the artist’s significant and substantial practice anew, as well as to collect and present works from some of his pivotal series, such as: Diary, Decision as Art, Was Ist Kunst?, Gott Liebt die Serben, and Fluxus Piano. The exhibition centers around the artist’s continuous practice within the domain of socially and politically engaged art, as well as in the field of re-examining standards observed by artistic frameworks, imposed and commonly accepted principles, as criteria that may be subjected to criticism and more recent review.

Avant-garde artistic practice encompasses innovative methods applied by modern art that is directly affecting the development of its social environment. The problems and issues tackled by these artist have – since the seventies – represented the pillars of social and artistic conservatism, traditionalism and nationalism. Todosijević’s work made them all more visible and thus exposed to conscientious critique. The view that the local environment witnessed engaged artistic trends that were evolving simultaneously with innovative and radical artistic practices emerging across the international art scene is substantiated by Dragoljub Raša Todosijević’s work, placing his oeuvre within the wider context of neo-avant-garde art. On one hand, the exhibition prepared by MSUV emphasizes the importance of this artist’s contribution, as well as the international affirmation of the local art scene. On the other, it underlines the crucial role of institutions in terms of how the legacy of contemporary artists is to be preserved and made visible to the general public. In 2011, Raša Todosijević represented Serbia at the 54th Venice Biennale with his exhibition “Light and Darkness of Symbols”, shown at the Serbian Pavilion. This exhibition garnered the international UniCredit Venice Award, marking the first and – so far – the only award won by the Serbian Pavilion at this renowned international event. The exhibition was produced by Novi Sad MSUV, represented by the Commissioner Živko Grozdanić, who was Director of MSUV at the time, and by the Curator and Publication Editor Sanja Kojić Mladenov. After the exhibition was closed and the award was presented, the artist donated one of his monumental installations to the Museum. Thus, the retrospective exhibition of his work in Novi Sad, in addition to being a logical continuation of MSUV’s cooperation with the author, comes as an opportunity to present – among the widest possible selection – some of the works shown in Venice, ten years later. Together with the works from the MSUV collection, the exhibition TOMORROW IS MONDAY will feature works from the collections of the Belgrade Museum of Contemporary Art, Sarajevo Ars Aevi Museum of Contemporary Art, and the “Gradac” Cultural Center in Raška. The exhibition is organized as part of the program “Kaleidoscope of Culture” – Novi Sad, European Capital of Culture 2022. MSUV is patroned by the Provincial Secretariat for Culture, Public Information and Relations with Religious Communities. The exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia and Saša Marčeta Foundation from Belgrade.
The exhibition is organized as part of the program “Kaleidoscope of Culture” – Novi Sad, European Capital of Culture 2022.

FEMINIST AVANT-GUARD is an international group exhibition that includes works by 78 international women artists from the VERBUND collection, of which a special selection will be made for the exhibition in Novi Sad, with a special segment of works by artists from the MSUV collection. Among the artists presented in the VERBUND COLLECTION are: Judy Chicago, VALIE EXPORT, Sanja Iveković, Katalin Ladik, Cindy Sherman, Birgit Jürgenssen and others. Historically, women have been portrayed as a projection of male fantasies, prejudices and relationships. However, in the 1970s, there was a change in the way women were presented in art. Women artists started to explore visual representations of their own beings in order to create alternative views on the female identity. Gabriele Schor, as the director of the collection and editor of the accompanying monograph, has researched the feminist avant-garde to highlight the role which these artists have played in the last four decades. The results are radical, poetic, ironic, angry, cynical and cordial. Most of all, they are sincere, sharing a collective consciousness that has re-examined and rejected what previously dominated, turning to new ways of expression in the fields of photography, performance, film and video. The exhibition and the book highlight the achievements of women artists who encouraged and inspired those who developed on the experiences of their predecessors.

Arists:

Sonia Andrade | Judith Bernstein | Renate Bertlmann | Teresa Burga | Judy Chicago | Veronika Dreier | Orshi Drozdik | Mary Beth Edelson | Renate Eisenegger | VALIE EXPORT | Gerda Fassel | Barbara Hammer | Margaret Harrison | Sanja Ivekovic | Anne Marie Jehle | Birgit Jürgenssen | Anna Kutera | Auguste Kronheim | Ketty La Rocca | Katalin Ladik | Brigitte Lang | Suzy Lake | Karin Mack | Anita Münz | Florentina Pakosta | Howardena Pindell | Ingeborg G Pluhar | Lotte Profohs | Ulrike Rosenbach | Martha Rosler | Victoria Santa Cruz | Lydia Schouten | Cindy Sherman | Annegret Soltau | Anita Steckel | Gabriele Stötzer | Betty Tompkins | Francesca Woodman

The exhibition of the VERBUND COLLECTION in Novi Sad will be expanded by addition of the exhibition of art works from the MSUV collection, i.e. the exhibition of artists from the geopolitical space of Serbia whose artistic practice transcends the traditional media and gender positions and operates in the international cultural space. The selected works, coming from women artists such as: Katalin Ladik, Milica Mrđa, Tanja Ostojić, Vesna Perunović, Bogdanka Poznanović, Jelena Radić, Judita Šalgo, Vesna Tokin and Milica Tomić, analyse the position of personal identity in contemporary art practice and society, explore the processes of performativity, immateriality, as well as the transgression of borders, and explore the idea of breaking through formal, media and spatial frameworks.

Artists:

KATALIN LADIK, MILICA MRĐA, TANJA OSTOJIĆ, VESNA PERUNOVIĆ, BOGDANKA POZNANOVIĆ, JELENA RADIĆ, JUDITA ŠALGO, VESNA TOKIN I MILICA TOMIĆ

Avant-garde processes, as initiators of artistic experiment, innovation, progressiveness, engagement and freedom of artistic expression, marked the artistic and social history of Novi Sad. This raises the question of preserving values in the local environment, its visibility and connection with similar, important activities in regional and international cultural space, as well as their connection to contemporary media and post-media practices.

The focus is on less visible and marginalised geopolitical and cultural spaces, in particular in southeast and eastern Europe. These are so-called semiperipheries and places of diversity that often play only a minor role in many international theoretical discourses and exhibition practices.

Artists from each of the 12 stations will join and continue the tour together with the others and thus change the space within the exhibition, open new topics and ask new questions for reflection, all the way to the last stations in Berlin where, through all these processes and changes, perhaps a different Europe from the usual one will be presented.

The goal of the exhibition is pointing out the current socio-political orders and illuminating the specific impulses of certain places, in order to generate a continuous development of space for dialogue. The exhibition title EVROVIZION is a construct made of similar and yet still different languages – Eurovisione / Evrovizija / Евровизия – a fusion of potential unities; a free version of potential togetherness.

The co-creative exhibition EVROVIZION.CROSSING STORIES AND SPACES by ifa (Instutut für Auslandsbeziehungen) explores the current social and political situation in Europe and the idea of a European identity

The artists and art collectives participating in the exhibition explore very different current socio-political issues in their works: the question of origin, personal and collective identity, history and mythology, the politics of memory and archiving, a critical view of neoliberalism, colonialism and nationalism, ruling stereotypes and the positions of the other and the different in relation to the socially dominant.

The exhibition also includes a traveling library, available to all visitors to the exhibition, a web presentation of the project and the MAGAZINE PRE-ISSUE which contains initial information about the project. Also, in each city of the presentation, a new issue of the magazine will be conceived, including EUROVISION.CROSSING NOVI SAD – realized with local partners and through the coverage of all additional contents and events of the project in Novi Sad. Eventually, a collection of different magazines is expected, as a specific “travel archive”.

During the presentation of the exhibition, November 26th 2021 – February 27th 2022, several accompanying programs will be held in Novi Sad, while in February 2022, an exhibition by the artist Henrika Nauman will be realized at the gallery of the Goethe-Institute Exchange Office in Belgrade.

EVROVIZION.CROSSING STORIES AND SPACES is an exhibition by ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) and is organized in Novi Sad in cooperation with the Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina and the Goethe-Institut Serbia. The exhibition is part of the Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture program.
