Center for visual culture of the Museum of Contemporary Art presents the results of two workshops realized within the research project From Dionysian Socialism to Predatory Capitalism. Starting premise of the project is that the history is not simply a given fact but is always constructed, and thus may as well be reconstructed and deconstructed. In the course of the audio-workshop, which was conducted by the composer Miroslav Savić – Mipi, ephemeral fragments of personal memories of the key protagonists of the art and cultural scene in socialist Yugoslavia were creatively incorporated in musical compositions thus reshaping conventional forms of historical narratives. Through joint efforts of the composers and the participants of the workshop for space design, conducted by the visual artist and architect Milorad Mladenović, the ways of specialization of these compositions were invented and elaborated. As the final result of the work of the teams composed of one composer and one architect actual realizations of ambient settings were created specifically for the building of the no longer existing enterprise Inex Film. In selecting the location it was crucial that this building was recognized as a symptom of the social transformations in today’s Serbia, with traces of the former social system which it brings with itself, but also with new forms of self-organized usage of abandoned spaces in satisfying certain cultural needs. Preparatory operations regarding the adaptation of the space in which these ambiences are presented were carried out together with the collective Expedition Inex Film which acts in this building and investigates the possibilities of self-organizing, of solidarity and ‘do-it-yourself’ philosophy of life in Belgrade at the beginning of the 21st century.
