About the presentation

During October and November, 3 artists from each country – UK, Greece, Turkey, and Serbia spent six weeks in Athens, Istanbul or Belgrade as participants of the residential program stays within the Connect for Creativity project, which will result in a group exhibition in London in 2020.

Selected participants are from different backgrounds such as architecture, visual arts, performative arts, design, literature, music, sound and video, film and new media, while the Belgrade’s residency hosted Theo Prodromidis (Greece), Oguz Emre Bal (Turkey), Ioana Man (UK) and Sanja Anđelković (Serbia). 

Participating authors developed their artworks based on the curator’s concept, through their own perspective and practice. Final artworks will be presented in smaller exhibitions in each city, and in Belgrade they will be exhibited at the Science and Technology Museum from November 15th to November 29th. The four artworks are going to be a part of the permanent exhibition of the Museum, creating a dynamic dialogue between tech heritage and recent implications of technology, expressed through the prism of each of these artists. 

More than 250 artists applied for the open call for residencies, while the final selection was made by the curatorial team of the Furtherfield organization (UK), that will, at the same time, going to host the final exhibition in March 2020.

Led by British Council, in partnership with creative hubs ATÖLYE and Abdullah Gul University from Turkey, as well as creative hubs bios from Greece and Nova Iskra from Serbia, Connect for Creativity project started in February this year and will be realized by the spring of 2020 through numerous conferences, exhibitions, study stays and research dedicated to the intercultural dialogue in creative industries and hubs. The project is co-funded by the EU and the Republic of Turkey through the intercultural dialogue program, led by Yunus Emre Institute.
