“Although characterised by local specificities the Novi Sad Neo-Avantgarde of the 1960’s and 1970’s has been treated like other Eastern European arts. Other than a few exceptions, it has not been the focus of scholarly research. This is closely related to the social framework in which the artistic practice was carried out, as well as to the obstacles this social context engendered. Together these help to illustrate the impact of youth movements during that time, the geopolitical position and internal affairs of Yugoslavia, particularly within the local context of Vojvodina and Novi Sad.
The book is published on the occasion of “The Continuous Art Class” exhibition in Novi Sad, from the November 18th to the December 3rd, 2005. The exhibition is part of the longterm project “The Continuous Art Class”, and contextualizes project of research of this specific period. The other texts in the publication include: Media Ontology – Mapping of Social and Art History in Novi Sad by kuda.org, Relay as a New Economy of Scale by Katherine Carl, Collective Cultural Practices, Between the Sentiment and Functionality of Creative Communities by Branka Ćurčić, as well as arists, works, video documentation, referent literature presented at the exhibition.”
