23th May, Actopolis Apartment

Throughout the ACTOPOLIS BELGRADE project, many programs have highlighted both city’s abundance of self-organized initiatives and the unfavorable working conditions in to which independent cultural workers are subject. Irena Ristić – artist, professor at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade and member of the self-organized initiative – has gone a step further.

For the past month, as part of the project entitled ‘Rehearsal’, Irena Ristić has sat down with selected cultural workers and conducted an experiment. Participants were asked to think up alternative organizational models for an independent initiative. By doing so, participants (Dragan Protić, Igor Koruga, Mariela Cvetić, Vahida Ramujkić, Nikola Radić Lucati, Tanja Marković, Mirjana Boba Stojadinović, Nebojša Milikić, Noa Treister, and Vlada Novaković) have individually articulated the downsides of the existing models and defined their demands for improved working conditions. In doing so, they have created a foundation for new models in the form of superstructures and emergent poly-media work. Irena Ristić presented this work as an audio installation and discussed the summary of conclusions with the ACTOPOLIS BELGRADE audience.

The full audio material, a product of the conversations with the ‘Rehearsal’ participants, is available in Serbian at:
