Belgrade collective Škart has been operating within and around existing hierarchies of the art world and everyday life, working in collaboration with marginalized 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.
