About the presentation

Within the second cycle of the NELT Educational program, participants of the program were introduced to Škart collective, one of the leading Serbian socially-engaged artistic collectives.

Through an interactive presentation and open discussion, the participants of the program had the opportunity to get acquainted with some of their older projects, but also with more recent productions, and analyze them together. Members of the Škart also launched a discussion on the topic of sharing, collaboration and demystification of art, but also about the importance of errors in the process of artistic creation.

This unique aristic team deals with poetry, graphic design and alternative education.

From April 2016 until March 2017, NELT is organizing the second cycle of its Nelt Educational Program for students, in collaboration with Nova Iskra and Gallery 12 Hub. The aim is for the participants to develop practical skills form the domains of design and new media, through teamwork and inspiration that will empower them to turn their ideas into real projects, whose further development may be supported by NELT.

Škart Collective

Artist

ŠKART Collective was founded in 1990s in the graphics studio of the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade. This unique aristic team deals with poetry, graphic design and alternative education. The first decade, (1990 - 2000) was marked by “samizdat” (self-released) projects and their sharing on the  streets. In the second decade (2000 -2010), the group co-founded several new collectives: Horkeškart and Proba choirs, children's choirs Deca sa meseca and AprilZMAJun, including the youth-retirement choir HOR-RUK and the antifascist choir UHO (united choirs). Since 2010, the collective is increasingly involved in working with children (at the foster home “Vera Radivojević” in Bela Crkva) and with pensioners.
