Artis’ Postcard: An Artistic Travel Album

In the mid-March of the current year, the World Health Organization has declared the pandemic. Coronavirus has literally stopped the planet and started to change our lives from their roots on all levels. Planes were grounded long-term, museums, archeological parks, theaters, operas, churches, restaurants, and other institutions that, by default, consider the gathering of a large number of people have been closed. We have been locked into the isolation which we have never encountered before. The overnight shift could be deemed almost as fantastic.

Our civilization used to traveling, visiting exhibitions, attending concerts or lectures all of a sudden found itself a hostage of its own homes with a single-window to the world – the internet. This exact, crucial instrument of communication has started off numerous initiatives in which museums and institutions alike took the lead of, while the audiences across the world showed how imaginative and humorous they are.

Recreations of favorite artworks, online lectures, and concerts with whole orchestras synchronized from their apartments, ballet performances, various podcasts, and even curatorial tours – all from our own homes!

Artis’ Postcard: An Artistic Travel Album #IMD2020

Jumping onto the wave of these diverse initiatives, Artis Center has joined the recreation of artworks, but it has also started off an authentic project – the Artis’ Postcard. 

Aware that we won’t be able to travel and visit museums, historic sites, and other cultural monuments for a long time, we have invited our audience to join us in creating an artistic travel album by sending photos from their travels.


The criteria are rather simple. One city or a country – one postcard in the shape of the collage of a minimum of 3 photographs. One of those photographs preferably showing the author of the postcard, whether alone, or with family and friends.

The postcard must include a museum, artwork, or tangible or intangible cultural heritage.

Exceptions are allowed only if the idea is original and the way of its interpretation coherent and connected. We are always led by Coco Chanel’s saying that less is more, but we allow our audiences to be original, and it is on us to recognize and accept that authenticity.


Thus we have invited everyone on a group, virtual voyage while the world is paused.

As such, we have received so many postcards that not only we have decided to create an artistic travel album, but a virtual exhibition out of it! The show will be displayed on May 18th, when we traditionally mark the International Museum Day. Following the International Council of Museums’ decision to move the celebration into the digital sphere, our exhibition is mapped on ICOM’s IMD 2020 platform and will be available on our website. We’ll also join the biggest museum manifestation in Serbia – Museums for 10.

Our album currently counts over 100 postcards, but we are still inviting you to join us. If you want, send your postcard the latest by May 12th to office@artiscenter.com with a short description of where the postcard is taken, what does it feature, and your name.

Etnology 2019: Inspiracija ili krađa

Treći po redu Etnology Fest  pod nazivom „ Odbrana tradicije“  održaće se od 30. maja do 1. juna u Domu Vojske Srbije (Braće Jugovića 19)  u organizaciji agencije SuperStar Culture. Specijalni gost i zemlja u fokusu ovogodišnjeg Etnology Festa je Rumunija, koja ove godine predsedava EU.

Tim povodom će drugog dana festivala, 31. maja u 12 časova u svečanoj sali Doma Vojske biti održan specijalni panel pod nazivom „ Inspiracija ili krađa“.   Za temu ovog panela poslužio je slučaj iz 2017. godine kada je modna kuća ”Dior” za svoju kolekciju pronašla ”inspiraciju” u narodnoj nošnji Rumunije (regiona Bihor), a da pri tom lokalne zajednice od toga nisu imale nikakvu materijalnu nadoknadu ni korist.

Često modne kuće ili renomirani kreatori za kolekcije koriste svoje i tuđe nematerijalno kulturno nasleđe – narodne nošnje, ukrase i ornamente stvarajući nove kolekcije u komercijalne svrhe. S toga će učesnici panela biti naši stručnjaci  iz ove oblasti: Andreea Tanasescu, osnivač brenda “La Blouse Roumaine“,Tamara Ognjević, istoričarka umetnosti, direktorka Artis centra, Stefan Žarić ,istoričar mode, Nevena Jeličić, advokat i predsednik advokatske kancelarije ADV-Veselinović  i naš slavni modni kreator,  Igor Todorović . Moderator panela je  Branka Kovačević, novinar, urednik i autorka knjige “Kako postati ikona stila – Beograđanke znaju”.

Povodom Međunarodnog dana muzeja: Okrugli sto na temu muzeja kao središta kulture

Subota, 18. maj, 12 časova, Narodni muzej u Beogradu (Atrijum, Trg Republike 1a)

Nacionalni komitet ICOM Srbija će u subotu 18. maja, a povodom obeležavanja Međunarodnog dana muzeja, održati Okrugli sto na temu “Muzeji kao središta kulture: Budućnost tradicije” u Narodnom muzeju u Beogradu s početkom u 12 časova. Okrugli sto se odvija kao deo aktivnosti Nacionalnog komiteta u okviru Nacionalne nedelje muzeja i muzejske manifestacije “Muzeji za 10”.
O novoj ulozi muzeja u svetlu promenjenih očekivanja publike, ali i aktuelne kulturne politike, te realnim uslovima rada u kojima funkcionišu muzeji Srbije, razgovaraju: dr Marija Aleksić, direktorka Muzeja Afričke umetnosti, Goran Vasić, direktor Narodnog muzeja Kruševac, Vesna Grgurović, direktorka Gradskog muzeja Vrbas i msr Nela Tonković, direkorka Narodnog muzeja Šabac. Autor i moderator: msr Tamara Ognjević (Artis centar), potpredsednica NK ICOM Srbija.
Već treću godinu za redom Nacionalni komitet Međunarodnog saveta muzeja (ICOM Srbija) organizuje okrugli sto povodom Međunarodnog dana muzeja 18. maja. Uvek je u fokusu ona tema koju međunarodna muzejska zajednica bira kao najaktuelniju u tekućoj godini.
Ove godine je to “Muzeji kao središte kulture: Budućnost tradicije”, a sagovornici na osetljivu temu nove uloge muzeja u svetlu promenjenih očekivanja publike, ali i aktuelne kulturne politike, te realnih uslova u kojima rade muzeji Srbije, su četvoro direktora izuzetno angažovanih, uspešnih muzejskih ustanova na tragu nove muzeologije. Posebno je zanimljivo da je reč o tri muzeja izvan velikih centara – Beograda i Novog Sada, dok je četvrti specifična ustanova čije zbirke imaju tek sasvim malo veze za domaćim kulturnim nasleđem.

 

Ulaz je slobodan!
