With many new initiatives and exhibition spaces opening in vibrant Belgrade each month, keeping track presents a real challenge both for natives and those visiting Serbia's capital.

Aleksandar Nikolić recognized a certain communication gap and endeavored on mapping out all active institutional and self-organized spaces. While the idea for this initiative was born last year, it was not until the ACTOPOLIS BELGRADE project that it was set in motion. A couple of days ago, the unique overview of all exhibitions spaces in Belgrade finally saw the light of day in the form of a printed map. Hard copies are available at the ‎ACTOPOLIS‬ apartment in Boulevard despot Stefan 36, and the online version can be downloaded here.

While some may debate the necessity of a printed map in the digital age and question whether its democratic approach and lack of criteria for spaces actually make it practical; the map presents yet another example of how self-organized initiatives now almost regularly fill in the gaps of the dysfunctional institutional system in Serbia. For better or for worse.
