SANJA JOVANOVIĆ: FAMILY MATTERS - DOCUMENTARY PHOTO EXHIBITION
As a final photo exhibition in our project, we present a great work of a Belgrade born and recently a Jakarta resident Sanja Jovanović, whose work made a significant impact on our understanding of real life surrounding us. "In many of the villages in Serbia there is a growing problem, the sound of crying babies hasn't been heard for a long time. Searching for better life women moved to towns so the only inhabitants left are lonely men. These already elderly man decide on their last effort of getting married, searching for hope in Albania..."

HIGH-WIRE ACT Exhibition @ Maison Folie Wazemmes, Lille
Contemporary art exhibition on the political, social and personal concept of borders with Loredana Bianconi, Lana Cmajcanin, Leila Cmajcanin, Adela Jusic, Jean-Gabriel Periot, Sarah Vanagt, Vladan Jeremic and Rena Radle.
“Within and on the outside we vote for other manners and actions – for overnight shift of ratio-patriarchal capitalism to temporary feminist and experience based socialism, consumerism to modesty, repressed regulated individual to affirmative self-sustained social being, for direction sign-marks instead of borders.”
Please find the curatorial statement by Dunja Kukovec at CRVENA web site:
