The project ARTIST AS AUDIENCE is a forum in which the audience brings forward and mutually examine opinions and attitudes about chosen works of the young and mid-career artists, who’s art production was in the centre of the focus of the professionals in the field throughout the zero years of this century (2000-2010), however it remained without an articulated response in the among the wider audience. Why is it so? Do works of contemporary visual art and related fields give “food for thoughts” and to whom? Which subjects do these works engage with and in which way? Can an artwork change something in the everyday life?
The conversations ARTIST AS AUDIENCE pass in an exchange of opinions among the discussion participants, while the artist him/herself remains passive in the conversation. The point of these conversations is not for the artist to explain his/her work, but to create an active communication between the artwork and the audience: from first impressions and possible implications the work gives, to gaining insight and looking into the everyday context of artistic practices on Belgrade scene, here and now. The forum is a beginning of the research within the frames artist-art-institution-public domain in the time period 2000-2010 and its consequences in Serbia, specifically in Belgrade. They serve as case study of the fragile state of art and its reception and give a possibility to fixate some of the key issues in the contemporary visual art in Serbia.
