FROM PHOENIX, ARIZONA Topic: BALKAN AFFAIRS
A Photo Gallery of Belgrade Art Students' WorkWhat follows below is a selection of art from an exhibit which opened May 5 at Beoizlog, a Cultural Center in Knez Mihajlova Street in Belgrade. Creators-exhibitors are students of the Belgrade Art Academy. Unable to go to classes, and inspired by the everyday tomahawk and cruise missile reality of NATO's terror, they decided to channel their creative energies into making statements of their own. And to do it in English, too. (How many western artists are capable of doing something like this in Serbian or Russian, for example?)
Some posters are full of spunk. Like the first one, depicting a human skeleton as the "Oscar" award, whose caption reads: "And the Oscar goes to Serbia in the Category of Disobedience." Others are just full of everyday terror which NATO sows among the Serb civilians. Those who saw the exhibit live say that the posters are even more powerful when seen in person. Especially if accompanied by Belgrade's everyday "sound effects," we suppose. And now, voila! Enjoy...
