The city is back on its feet. July kicks off with various events ranging from concerts to art exhibitions.
We would recommend to start with October Salon Art exhibition:
58th October Salon | Belgrade Biennale 2021
The Cultural Centre of Belgrade announces the new opening date and list of participating artists at the 58th October Salon. The reduced map of the venues now refers primarily to the exhibition space of the Belgrade City Museum in Resavska Street and the Cultural Centre of Belgrade. Some additional venues that will be part of the exhibition of the 58th October Salon, which will not imply staying indoors, are: Radio Belgrade, BIGZ Building, and several public places in the city, which will focus on the presentation of artworks in dialogue with Belgrade.
The exhibition intends to investigate the complexity of the current times, questioning not only the misleading nature of the real, but the space occupied by dreams, intended as the metaphorical embodiment of a space of freedom, which is able to challenge the certainty of the real world, of acquired knowledge and of our own beliefs.
For centuries philosophers have asked to what extent our external world can legitimately be considered real, utilizing the oneiric as an argument to criticize our most common certainties. Today, the accelerated development of new technologies seems to have overturned the issue. The possibility of creating and taking part in increasingly refined virtual spaces seems to represent an escape from reality, an escape towards a dimension that is not strictly oneiric, but that is undoubtedly related to our dreams.
The question is: how can we perceive today’s world? What are the conditionings that interfere in our capacity to critically experience reality? How can artists explain the complexity of the human being in our current times? Dreams allow us to rethink our relationship with reality, with the truth of Nature, of the plant world and of the animal beings?
The exhibition will include the work of 55 international artists from different countries worldwide.
October Salon | Belgrade Biennale 2021, titled The Dreamers
