TREŠNJEVKA NEIGHBOURHOOD MUSEUM

Large__dsf1736

THE TREŠNJEVKA NEIGHBORHOOD MUSEUM is a project that we have run since 2018, with the goal of establishing a hybrid neighborhood institution where “its engine and purpose is the community, and the coexistence of men with their environment its foundation.” It is inspired by similar institutions one finds in poor working-class areas worldwide, in which the official, national, and imperialist white culture has bypassed oppressed communities and their needs. In the post-socialist context, over the past three decades, historical narratives as well as museum exhibition programs have systematically evaded themes related to workers’ struggle, socialist revolution, and building of socialist society. Since Trešnjevka is known for its rich working class history, we have started an initiative for revalorization and historization of its heritage, in cooperation with the local community [...]

MST ON THE RADIO BAZA

Trešnjevka Neighborhood Museum on the Radio BAZA

AUTHORS: Barbara Gregov, Ljubica Letinić and [BLOK]

Hear here: BLOK soundcloud

 

The fourth edition of Radio BAZA, instead of airing from 11 Adžijina Street, is going fully digital, taking the form of a three-part podcast. Although it does not feature conversations, live music, plays, and other live performances, we have gathered researchers, activists, musicians, radiophonists, and amateurs, all united in the common goal: we want to fight the commodification of the radio through collective production of a critical program, artistic and radiophonic experiments. This year our theme has been the heritage of the Trešnjevka neighborhood, which is being researched, collected, and interpreted within the Trešnjevka Neighborhood Museum project. We are taking you for three very special sound walks, starting from the eastern edge of the neighborhood, across its main vein and a forgotten park, all the way to the "Women Writers' Club". Recordings of urban tours given this fall within the Neighborhood Museum are intertwined with poetry written by Tesla factory workers, short pieces by Trešnjevka’s pupils, and other treasures from the Museum' s collection [...]

POLITICAL SCHOOL FOR ARTISTS AND ALL INTERESTED 2020 – CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Large_sova6_resized

 

Application deadline: 16 February 2020

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?

Take part in the Political School for Artists and All Interested! [...]
