The Spaces of Otherness
Contemporary Balkan Art (CoBA) presents Heterotopia: The Spaces of Otherness, at the Serbian House, in London, 1 - 22 July 2017. The artists examine phenomena and discourses crucial for identification of various trends within the Serbian and regional art scene, largely contributing to the overall development of visual arts in Serbia. As a common determinant of their work is the desire to join the world market. In such an environment a new artistic practice has been created, offering the full autonomy of expression, but also implying responsibilities towards the future.

CoBA and GALLERY 106 are delighted to announce the Artist in Conversation event, which is an integral part of the current exhibition of Six Established Artists from the Balkans. Zolt Kovac is an artist engaged in changing social attitudes through reflection on the urban community. His work examines our all-consuming ‘rush’; the criteria that are being degraded; the idea of why we started this rush without challenging it critically.
