Heterotopia: The Spaces of Otherness – Sat, 1st July 2017


Serbian House
7 Dering Street, London W1S 1AE

Private View: 1 July, 6 – 10pm
Exhibition Dates: 2 – 22 July, 2 – 8pm (closed on Mon & Tue)

CoBA’s forthcoming exhibition, at the Serbian House in London, represents a revival of the relocated site and its reactualization. The heterotopic aspect is reflected through elimination of existing differences and distances, with the Other incorporated into the art itself. The participating artists feel strongly about these ideas and deal with spaces from different perspectives, mostly concerned with passing and detachment.

The artists examine phenomena and discourses crucial for identification of various trends within the Serbian and regional art scene, largely contributing to the overall development of visual arts in Serbia. As a common determinant of their work is the desire to join the world market. In such an environment a new artistic practice has been created, offering the full autonomy of expression, but also implying responsibilities towards the future.
