Reflections on the Art spaces and Residence Summit, Kino Kultura, Skopje, December 2019

Let me start with an introduction to the events that took place in Copenhagen during the days of our summit. I hope it will be productive to share this with you since I feel that I went through a steep learning curve during those days. The summit was an eye-opener to me, but so was a pending shit storm, which was a growing threat to the survival of Trampoline House. Read More

Summit in Skopje 2019, reflections by Marijana Cvetkovic


For the occasion of the Summit that took place in November 2019 in Skopje, I presented the model of a cultural and social center in Belgrade, Magacin.

What is your personal/professional relation to space and institution in arts and culture?

December 2019, four years after starting Kino Kultura, and two years after the summit in Mannheim, still focusing with the notions of institution and space, and their relations to the practice of curating, to art, to labor, to conditions of work, to collaboration, to ownership, to power and its distribution, to different/ various forms of self-management… Probably these are ongoing issues, notions that are always on my horizon.
