There has been a lot of talk and imagination around the more and less obvious parallels between one of Europe's capitals
of creativity Berlin, and the Serbian capital Belgrade. The history, the more or less diverse cultural mix, the decay, the creative
young generations and their mark on the two cities… Many parties or cultural collaborations took place already, while informal
connections, number of visiting art students in Berlin or artistic collaborations are blooming on their own, beyond the realms of "official culture". It could be said that musically the two cities are very well connected, and it was indeed the festival Dis-patch
which was one of the main interfaces in presenting the exciting new
sounds of the Berlin-based musicians and media artists to the local Serbian audience.
In its new phase of activity, leaving the
festival behind and focusing on individual curated projects which also span out into the fields of visual arts, informal creative
education and trans-disciplinary projects, the D-p collective is bringing five extraordinary Serbian visual authors to Berlin for a
special show and 3-week long residency in a gallery which has can with 2 decades of tradition in supporting the new avant-garde
movements and global visual tendencies.
The specific, ambivalent and uncanny "flavor" of Belgrade will dominate the entire vast space of the Neurotitan Gallery. As Le
Corbusier had said - "Belgrade is the ugliest city in the world in the most beautiful place in the world". This sort of ambivalence
is something the featured artists, and the majority of population of Belgrade, are facing each day. The absurd mix of impressions
such as "the gently decaying stratum of history", "where hospitality crackles in the air", "torn and spilt, as if it never exist" , "the
slightly disheveled air", "full of forgotten people" or "old for its age" are all equally correct if we speak of Belgrade. Belgrade, then,
is a weird place indeed!
The artists featured at this show are the right individuals to represent this ambiguity, through a mix of
techniques, styles and motives which will reflect their personal artistic histories, as well as communal feeling which underlines all of their diverse outputs.

Fat Kid Beny
is an illustrator and graffiti-tattoo artist from Belgrade. Art rawer than what you have been used to. A different perspective on things. Don't get offended if you don;t understand it, maybe it wasn't meant for you.
aka Dulait is an artist dedicated to graphic interventions in public space, at the same time involved in photography and more "classic" techniques of drawing and painting. He used to be a member of the artistic duo Krš in Belgrade.
