Television as a Symbol of Lost Public Space, The exhibition “TV Gallery”

  • Ćurčić B
    The exhibition “TV Gallery” has been conceived in order to contextualize and represent specific television production (“TV Gallery”) that was created at Belgrade Television and broadcasted on the Yugoslav TV network from 1984 – 1991. The exhibition is dealing with cultural policy, conditions of art and cultural production, public television and production and broadcasting of video art in territory of former Yugoslavia.

"Cultural diversity"?

  • Ćurčić B
    I have need to react on two points published here around term “cultural diversity”, one in contribution of Ingrid Commandeur in “Globalization of the Art System” (although I realize it is meant as a provocation) on the "the whole idea of a spontaneous cultural diversity" and the other, there is a poll set at the n.e.w.s. web site asking visitors and contributors to vote for: How should we try to define “cultural diversity”?: 1) each contributor should write a definition, 2) visitors to the site can be given access to the “book on cultural diversity” to add their definition.

Autonomous Spaces of Deregulation and Critique, Is a Cooperation with Neoliberal Art Institutions Possible?

  • Ćurčić B
    In Serbia, the land which hasn't yet experienced the complete influence of regulations by the European Union and neoliberal capitalism in the field of culture and in art and cultural institutions, cooperation between independent (or progressive) groups and those institutions is more simple, and it could be seen as more “natural” in comparison with the experiences of organizations in the countries of mature capitalism.

Art and Its Own Power

  • Ćurčić B
    The latest book by Boris Groys - “Art Power”. The book reveals some of the contradictions of modern art, where the lines to today's power assigned to art - exclusively based on the existing free market, the art market – could be drawn from.

Web 2.0 – “New Economy” of Enclosure

  • Ćurčić B
    Web 2.0 is often referred as type of social networking providing “power to a user and democracy for everyone (...), as incubator of innovative forms of media and free cooperation” among its users. But, what if another point of view is added to this innocent image? We simply have to be able to comment, discuss and criticize something that is loudly (and successfully) represented as a new form of “information superhighway” bringing everyone “equal rights” to create and distribute content.
