Creative Global Network for the Visual Arts


Balkan Art

A group where you can discuss the contemporary art of the Balkans. Should such a term even exist? If so, where is art at in these countries? Is it useful or damaging to understand art through such categories? Molim vase misljenje! :-)

Great article featuring stunning War Memorials across the territory of ex-Yugoslavia!


Beautiful structures ->

‘During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War – called ‘Spomeniks’ – were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; striking monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA. In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted. Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers travelled the Balkans photographing these eerie objects, presented in this book as a powerful typological series. The beauty and mystery of the isolated, crumbling Spomeniks informs Kempenaer’s enquiry into memory, found beauty, and whether former monuments can function as pure sculpture.’

Of course there is no art of the Balkans as a common denominator. Balkan is a set of heterogeneous countries.But it is important to communicate.
