Belgrade Pavilion

An interactive post-office/workshop

The Belgrade pavilion is an interactive corner. Come and create your artwork and post it at the pavilion! Specially for the Amsterdam Biennale, 12 artists that work or have worked in Belgrade were invited to give a contribution of an artwork for the production of postcards. I only asked that the artwork is in some way connected to the city of Belgrade, being either personal in nature or public.


Een postkaart zenden naar een kunstenaar in Belgrado - The Belgrade pavilion, curated by Isidora Krstic, Oct 16 - Jan 3 2009/10, in the Amsterdam Biennale at Mediamatic. Belgrade pavilion. Especially for the Amsterdam Biennale,  Isidora Krstic has created an interactive art  post office. She  invited  12 Belgrade artists to create  a unique postcard for the exhibition offering their view on the city. You can come along and take a postcard but in return you have to send  one back to them.   Belgrade pavilion. Especially for the Amsterdam Biennale, … Raphael Rehbach


Postcards by the following artists can be found at the Belgrade pavilion:

Natasa Stojanovic, Vladan Jeremic and Rena Raedle, Boris Stanic, Bogdan Vojnovic, Nikola Krstic, Marko Krojac, Bojan Krstic, Jovana Komnenic, Nina Ivanovic, Tijana Krstic, Bojana Volas and Isidora Krstic.

These postcards, marking various moments and happenings in Belgrade's history and present, are available for the public to take, but at the same time they are also given a possibility and further encouraged to create their own postcard from a blank one at the pavilion and send it back to one of the authors of the postcards. Sending it back is easy! The Belgrade pavilion is conceived as a mini workshop/post-office. Each author has his/her own mailbox available where you directly post your postcard. At the end of the exhibition the mailboxes will be sent back to the authors as packages.
Thank you for contributing!

Postcards as a form of art presentation were chosen because of their simplicity and unique way of marking a moment in time. There is an inevitable time span between the moment a postcard is sent and the moment it is received. This grants the receiver an opportunity to recreate and reflect upon the place and moment of creation.

Find Your Way is a series of photographs which question the visual signalization of suggested movement shifted and narrowed down from it's primary, practical use to a different, more figurative approach. These can be cracks, bends or signs in the street as well as different game systems.
