Belgrade collective Škart has been operating within and around existing hierarchies of the art world and everyday life, working in collaboration with marginalised groups, NGOs, and anti-war movements. Škart‘s understanding of the artwork is fluid and relationship based. No matter the medium – poetry, embroidery, graphic design, choir, or radio broadcast – its artistic explorations are characterised by self-organisation, rooted in creating an open, accessible infrastructure for being together. This approach has been incorporated into a different scale of activities ranging from the street level to participation in the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Different social experiences create different forms of relativity.
Through conversations with Škart`s members, a collection of images, poems, drawings as well as newly commissioned texts by Zdenka Badovinac, Branislav Dimitrijević and Milica Pekić, this book captures traces of Škart`s practice from the 1990s to present.
