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.

This year's edition of the Micropolitics program brings together researchers of socially engaged artistic practices of the 20th century in the field of fine arts and literature, which, throughout that entire period, oscillated between new reception paradigms and old formal methods. Despite their global prevalence, these practices remained on the margins of the canon and were condemned for their tendentiousness and formal and material subordination to the political needs of progressive social forces. Starting from this, we have decided to open space for new narratives, focusing on the role that socially engaged art played in the struggle against fascism, racism and colonialism by capturing a wide range of socio-political events of the short 20th century (...)
