“Resolution 827" is the outcome of collaboration between Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, in the context of Global Collaborations. The title of the exhibition, “Resolution 827”, refers to the UN resolution that was adopted in 1993 establishing the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).The point of departure for the exhibition was to find a common denominator in the analysis of the societies of Serbia as well as other republics of the former Yugoslavia and the Netherlands, and to open up the debate on shared sore points, like the genocide in Srebrenica, that was subject to ICTY investigation.

Art in a ‘Global’ Context – Interview with Zoran Eric
2 months ago - 28/03/2015

On February 6, the third exhibition in the Global Positions series opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) in Belgrade, Serbia. This time, the exhibition is a solo presentation by Amsterdam-based artist Zachary Formwalt, entitled Three Exchanges, which consists of three interrelated video works exploring the often-invisible impact of global capitalism. The Global Positions exhibitions are developed from collaborations between the SMBA and like-minded art institutions around the world. The first in the series, Made in Commons, resulted from an exchange with the KUNCI cultural centre in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and the second established a relationship between the art scenes in Beirut and Amsterdam.

Art historian Steyn Bergs interviews the MoCAB’s chief curator Zoran Eric about the meaning of Formwalt’s installation in a former communist country, Serbia’s ‘in-between’ position in terms of the postcolonial discourse and the value of institutional collaborations.
