Future Ecologies – WE ARE HERE: Artists’ Moving Image

Conflicts is a multi-platform project responding to the broader context of FUTURE ECOLOGIES, a programme from WE ARE HERE: Artists’ Moving Image.

It examines collateral consequences of conflicts and how they affect not just the parties involved, but also the world that surrounds them. It does so by drawing analogies between realities and fiction, real events and speculative elements found in media, popular culture, films, books, folktales.
As a cumulative research venture, the project is dedicated to a future Belgrade, which would then be in discordance with its deeply rooted nostalgia. Through conversations, visual artworks, sounds, stories and atmospheres, the exhibition traces the silhouette of a possible future.

The project consists of an exhibition taking place at Eugster || Belgrade and Drugstore (Belgrade), a series of live online events and a series of podcasts called Projects are prophecies, prophecies are projects. Live events accompany the exhibition and they involve the screening of The Witch’s Cauldron by Branislav Jankić, a series of audiobook-style stories, interviews with some of the participating artists and a music programme moderated by Miloš Zec.
