2018 - in the process
The whole world


#idplaces is co-authored project created within the framework of the project Visual Transposition of Identity and Space. Taking Instagrammable places as the starting point, the project deals with issues of selfie and like culture, problem of interface and soft power, accumulation of content and presence. Instagram has become the most widespread medium that underscores social reality and produces a very specific vision of consciousness.The concept "As long as it's present on Instagram it happened" has created a situation where document of present moment became more important than the presence and the true experience of the place and situation in which we found ourselves.
Subversively using the same platform, the authors want to put us in situation of discovering new places and just be present in the given place and its surroundings.

The project starts on March 09th, 2019 with a workshop in Paris based on the psychogeographic walk in urban areas. Using a walk as a guidance system through spaces in search of spaces or places, the workshop aims to map identity points of the city that are less known but not less valuable. The idea is to reverse the branding power that Instagram possesses and direct it on the spaces that are witnesses of presence and enables the creation of a much more detailed and realistic identity map of the visited city and its citizens.

The co-authors of the #idplaces project are:
Luka Stojanovic, Jelena Gajinovic, Vanja Novakovic and Tijana Jevric in cooperation with Suncica Pasuljevic Kandic

Joana Quiroga
Artist in Residence




Starting this year, department of New Media Art is opening its door to its first guest artists in the framework of our guest lecture series Artist meny.

Joana will be working on her years long project Fermento. Her project foresees the creation of a yeast in Novi Sad Academy - a process that takes approximately 15 days -, and then make a bread with this starter and share it periodically, in an open studio or exhibition. In this way she will be researching the literal and abstract concept of “invisible life”. Her idea is to discuss how our perception and our attention to what is around us can be transformed into something visible and collaborative. She will be collaborating with students of the Academy and sharing her research with the public.

Joana Quiroga has academic background in Philosophy but her ideas and work led her to artistic practise. Her practice is immersed in collaborative work and artistic research which lead her to curatorial and writing practice where she is publishing papers related to art in Brazil and beyond. For many years now she is collaborating with Fredone Fone as an artist duo Pêndulo where they are working on various community projects. She has exhibited across South America, France, BiH.

Hamish Fulton is a contemporary artist who practices Walking Art. Using walking as a basic means of research, he is interested in the experience formed by it. In his work he is following the ideology of "do not leave a trace" that relates to the theoretical foundations of the concept of dematerialization. He conducts his work individually and in groups addressing personal, ecological and political situations.

Home Workouts

Home Workouts is conceived as communication exercises, where staged (short-term) assignments are set with special instructions that the project participants give each other. Home Workouts offers a variety of creative exercises that can be performed easily, with minimal equipment, a little effort and in simple space-time conditions. Home Workouts can be instructed from home, run at home, in passing, with or without a partner. By following the simple but specific instructions, the works are exploring the meaning, function and status of the work of art. In cooperation with the students of the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Home Workouts are based on the development of rapid solutions without “conceptual pretensions”. They represent a kind of artistic, aesthetic and conceptual warm up exercises that suggest how alternative methods of artistic educative strategies affect the development of creative thinking.

Home Workouts are performed in various media; depending on the task, photographs, drawings, video works, objects, texts and/or audio records are used for documenting interactions, interventions and/or mutual communications. Home Workouts actually draw inspiration from a number of references from art history, including the movements of the 1960s and 1970s or authors such as Sol LeWitt, Yoko Ono, Alison Knowels and others, but also from modern trends, such as the internet project LTLYM (2002/09) by Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher, or the exhibitions do it (1993 - ) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and We Are All Photographers Now (2007). In this light, the Home Workouts project relies on a kind of collective education; however, the focus is not (only) on the aesthetic functions of the works of art, but also on social and emotional interaction among the participants. It is not reflected (only) in the materiality of the presented works, but its value is recognized in revealing various shades of human perception, namely, in different interpretations of both the task and ourselves.

Visual transpositions of identity and space


What constitutes our identity and how do we understand, read and present it? How much are we personally responsible for our self-constitution and to what extent is that outcome of the social construct of our society? Do we acquire multiple personas that live in countless spaces or we become consumers of collectively canonized values?

The idea behind the project Visual Transposition of Identity and Space is to investigate whether and how today's conceptualization of ourselves and our environment differs from the period preceding the present hybridity that surrounds us. The project focuses on involving audiences and young artists through interactive discussion, psychogeographical workshops and exhibitions in a joint consideration of these issues.

Artists: Jelena Gajinović, Vanja Novaković, Tijana Jevrić and Luka Stojanović
Author of the project: Sunčica Pasuljević Kandić
