Motel Trogir in Belgrade @ Dissonant (co) spaces workshop

Modeling the public in “dissonant” co-spaces

< Belgrade_ workshop>

Igor Juran, 1965-1968, video still, 2015.

Belgrade,  27.04 – 29.04.2017.

Hotel Park, Njegoševa 2

Organizers: Jelena Šantić Foundation (Beograd), Lokomotiva – Centre for New Initiatives in Arts and Culture (Skoplje), Loose Associations /Slobodne veze/, contemporary art practices (Zagreb)

The workshop in Belgrade is the first step of the collaborative project The Dissonant (Co)Spaces, and its aim is to contribute to reflection and (in some cases) development of the governing models of these specific spaces in collaboration with various professionals in field of cultural management, sustainable development, cultural policy, political theory, economy, cultural heritage, architecture, etc. We will offer an insight into the three concrete cases (Pionirski Grad, Belgrade; Motel Trogir, Trogir; and Kino Kultura, Skopje) and work on the potential for future development of the three specific sites, having in mind the diverse context, socio-political, economic and normative frameworks as well as preservation of the memory layers of the of cultural heritage.

Additionally, through this workshop, we would like to try to articulate the following issues: what does the term “dissonant heritage” mean today, how is it perceived by the broader public; which of the examples of the 20th century architectural and cultural heritage could be recognized as worth saving, which of the values they implicitly bear are important in larger socio-political and cultural context today and how those spaces could be reaffirmed through cultural and artistic initiatives (among others).
