GOLD MEDAL AT PRAGUE QUADRENNIAL 2015 FOR PROVOKING A DIALOGUE
The performance of Serbia at this year’s Prague Quadrennial, called Process, was awarded the Gold Medal PQ 2015 for Provoking a Dialogue.
The Serbian curatorial team won the award for its overall performance – Mia David, curator of the Serbian national section, for their work Power(less) – Response(ability), the curatorial team of student section led by Tatjana Dadić Dinulović, for their work Process or What DOES matter to me, as well as the author teams of both national and student sections.
Prague Quadrennial is the most significant event in the field of scene design and performing space in the world. The award that Serbia won, has been established this year in order to emphasize the direction in which the Quadrennial has been transforming in the last decade and to indicate the possibility of its further development. Apart from that, this is the first time in the history of the Prague Quadrennial that Serbia has won a prize.
In the explanation, jury said that: “Artists and students from Serbia have shown a strong belief that art and artistic processes are deeply connected with the social, political and economic reality. Both artworks suggest the need for cooperation and connection between artists and students. It is all about a scene dialogue that attracts audience and affects it by visual and spatial solutions, at the same time establishing a dialogue.”
