Wall Newspaper

Intro

Wall Newspaper is a visual and informative media form that considers different social issues. The main goal of Wall Newspapers is to increase the visibility of the contents that critically assess the processes of neo-liberal capitalism, by producing sharp-cut texts and illustrations. We have perceived the form of a wall newspapers as a way of intervening in public space, that would have a greater effect on a broader public. Wall Newspaper was initiated in 2013, during the campaign Culture On Strike which was organised by the Association Independent Culture Scene of Serbia. Wall Newspaper is being distributed in a number cities of in Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia.

    At the invitation of Pelin Tan, curator of the Ankara/Mardin part of Actopolis, we spent seven days in Ankara, which provided us with an opportunity to meet other collectives and artists as well as to share experiences in our field of practice. We also had the opportunity to visit Istanbul on our way back to Belgrade and had a chance to see different art spaces there, that our partners from Ankara recommended we visit.

KURS (founded in 2010) is an organisation that examines wider social problems by means of artistic production. KURS acts through various visual forms, primarily through producing murals, illustrations, wall newspapers and video reports. The main aim of KURS is to produce educational and informative content framed by artistic language and presented in some form of artistic expression. Even though KURS is primarily associated with artistic production as a way of expression and articulation, in our work we also strive to join the political struggle and to bring about cooperation with left-orientated organisations.
