Thursday, 28 November at 19:00
Duplex100m2 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

This event, co-hosted by Duplex100m2 and Sarajevo Culture Bureau, is an open discussion of contemporary art and the contemporary art scene in our country.
There will be three short presentations, covering contemporary art criticism, contemporary art practice and infrastructure, and curating contemporary art from our three speakers.
Speakers are Pierre Courtin (Director, duplex 100m2), Elma Hodžić (art historian, SCB) and Jon Blackwood (editor SCB). The discussion is moderated by Aida Salketić (Foundation Cultural Heritage without Borders / SCB)
The floor will then be thrown open for a general discussion involving members of the audience, either responding to what has been said or adding their own insights.
It is intended that this will be the first of a series of open discussion on contemporary art at Duplex, to be held on the last Thursday of every month. The focus of our discussions will be contemporary art now and how we can all work together to realise its potential in the critical years ahead. Keep your eyes open for more details!
Our discussions will be held alongside a re-hang of the Duplex collection in the gallery’s office which we are working together to choose – come and have a look at what has been chosen.
The event will be held both in Bosnian and English. All positive minds are welcome! Wine, beer, soft drinks and maize-based snacks will be provided.
