Special program

Opening of the photo exhibition of Igor Čoko's engaged street photography workshop

How to perceive the phenomenon through the anthropological eye on the street, create a story, recognize the moment and build immediacy and reflection through the frame?

How to observe, understand, send the message in the right way and sort the composition so that by the time the photo exhibition can have a clear narrative?

The participants went through this and much more at the seven-day workshop in Belgrade at the social center KROV. The workshop consisted of interactive lectures and mentor fieldwork. Participants will work together in teams, while the final product will be a photo exhibition.

Our indispensable lecturer, comrade and mentor, as this time, is Igor Čoko. He graduated in ethnology and anthropology in Belgrade. He is the editor-in-chief of the photo magazine Grain.

Belgrade breakfast

Authors: Sara Nenadić, Andrej Popov

Does the rhythm of the city dictate the rhythm of life or vice versa? Simple incidental things like choosing where and when to have breakfast give us an insight into the profile of people accustomed to that ritual. How can breakfast affect a person’s day, month, life, imagination and family?

Rakia with a taste of freedom

Authors: Milica Marković, Teodora Đorđević, Ana Bašić

Through the film, we tried to go into the depth of the wall of Pavle Korčagin’s tavern with the camera. They whispered mysteriously about the labor actions that took place there, in “that era”, and today they are witnesses of some other actions, primarily the checkered tablecloths of this place that exudes socialism. In the evening, everyone forgets about ideologies, relaxes with the accordion and looks forward to a better tomorrow, so that what happened yesterday can be forgotten.

Olujka’s show

Authors: Milica Marković, Teodora Đorđević, Ana Bašić

Stefan is an employee of the Leoni factory in Kraljevo, where he works every day, except Sundays. On Sundays, Storm, his alter ego and drag persona, comes to life. Storm isn’t afraid to be who she is, fierce, brave, confident, everything Stefan is a weakness for. We follow Stefan during his transformation into Storm, as well as his performances, while he introduces us to what it means to be Storm and what the life of a drag artist in Serbia looks like.

Our Space

Authors: Vanja Matić, Vanja Štulić

The film follows users of psychiatric services in Prostor, an association where people care for each other, create art and discuss it.

Presentation of the SEF festival and the Antropop association from Zadar

Student Ethnographic Film (SEF) festival

It is a project organized for the first time in 2014 by students of ethnology and anthropology in Zadar, in cooperation with the ANTROPOP organization. From then until today, with the exception of two years, it has been held every spring, thus counting the tradition of eight years of its existence. The SEF festival aims to introduce students and the wider population to the field of visual anthropology through screenings of ethnographic films, expert lectures and various workshops. The idea of the project is to provide an opportunity for students from various parts of the world to submit their works that are selected for presentation to the public. In this way, we want to make students of ethnology and anthropology, as well as other disciplines, aware of the possibility of using film as a research method, but also to educate them and the wider audience about various global and everyday topics through the many perspectives of researchers. Through such a program, SEF is conceived as a platform for networking students and researchers within and interdisciplinary, through joint education, socializing and exchange of ideas. Of special importance for SEF is the long-term cooperation with the Vizantrop collective, which from the very beginning supports the organization of the festival and inspires new generations with its work. The future of SEF is being thought about precisely through the consolidation and expansion of that cooperation and joint work on new projects.

“Kalopérasi: good among bad times”

A film by the author Alexandra Wbrka, which shows the meetings between the author and young Greeks who play Rebetiko music (UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage). The film suggests that the precarious socio-economic conditions of the Greek context provided a springboard for the revival of rebetik among the youth, fueled by resentment over the state’s failure to provide basic material and social opportunities for the youth. Instead of giving clear answers and strict evaluations, the film opens a discourse on both the precariat and the socio-political action of young people through the revival of this old art. there is little in their favor.

Lucija Tomanović

Born in 1999 in Osijek, she is a graduate student of ethnology and anthropology of Russian studies at the University of Zadar. During her studies, she spent a year on the Erasmus project in Bratislava, during which she had the opportunity to travel and explore the area of Central Europe. With the desire to direct her activities towards the domain of visual anthropology, she first participated in the organization of the SEF festival in Zadar, and this encouraged her to take the initiative in the following years and continue the tradition of that project as its holder. In this way, he wants to contribute to the quality of student and cultural life in the city of Zadar and to encourage other students to be more active in these spheres.

Lecture by Branislav Stevanić

” Uaaaa, sšsšsšsš, woeuhwe98fj, bam…: Urban aspects of research in ethnomusicology” and conversation with the audience

Belgrade is a city of sound, a city that screams day and night, a city that is almost never silent. The sound sources of the city very often go beyond the scope of the urban modern environment, not only can you hear screams, barking, the “socialization” of transport machines, traffic controllers and policemen, firefighters, catering establishments…, almost every day different forms of masses also emit their voices, without clear sound markers assigned to them by the constructor. They sound by themselves. Belgrade is a city of protests and a city of fandom, so as rare, such sound treats represent exoticism, and ethnomusicologists, turning the tables, from the old paradigms of comparative musicology to the new post-Yugoslav turns, are looking for it. Social exotic sounds, i.e. music that appears at protests, but also all musical and social strongholds that precede the sounding of protest masses will be considered in the lecture ” Uaaaa, sšsšsšsš, woeuhwe98fj, bam…: Urban aspects of research in ethnomusicology”. How to frame the subject of research, and then also the methods of data collection, how to understand what the protest is telling us through sound, is a complex question. But ethnomusicologists, multidisciplinary people, have answers to these questions as well. See you on Friday, November 24.

Vizantrop's Preložur

We consider the concept of “prelo” as an example of solidarity work when performing socially useful work. We consider the creation of a participatory music event to be just such a type of work, so we see you, the listeners and creators of music, as workers at the “prelo” who contribute to social utility.
In order to create a new model of a musical event, suggest a few of your favorite or simply interesting songs, and then the host of the presentation will place everything on one table from where we can all enjoy.

Special guest: Nikonj (Slivnik)
