Do you want to address social issues through art? Does experience tell you that the reach of that sort of engagement is futile? Are you an artist, but you’re forced to work outside the sphere of art in order to survive? Does capitalism have you working your fingers to the bone and you want to see whether there’s an alternative? Do you want to find out what the concept of class really means and why we need class theory in order to understand the society in which we live? Are you interested in the history of socialism as an ideology and the history of the labour movement as a political force? Do you believe that the emancipation of women is inseparable from theoretical and practical reflections on radical social and economic changes? Are you concerned about the workers’ struggle and the possibility of organizing in contemporary circumstances? Are you looking for ways to strengthen your argumentation for future discussions with right-wingers and proponents of capitalism?

The book documents and expands on the series of three exhibitions between 2016 and 2018, where we presented our research on the Zemlja Artists’ Association (1929 – 1935). It is conceived as a monograph with a selection of archival material and art reproductions, as well as texts that position Zemlja’s work within the broader socio-political context of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the interwar period.
