Flu_ID 2004 exhibition, installation view, Dom omladine Gallery, Belgrade.
Flu_ID project started in 1998 as a series of lectures, screenings and presentations that I have initiated at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in order to enrich the regular program with diverse theoretical, scientific and artistic contents relevant for contemporary visual arts. This initiative soon included production and turned into a highly interdisciplinary and heterogenous media workshop whose program was formulated in the creative correlation between the research interests of students and their mentors.
The project gathered a number of guest lecturers such as Marina Gržinić, Želimir Žilnik, Miodrag Šuvaković, Jerko Denegri, Jurij Krpan, Zoran Naskovski, Milica Tomić, Branislav Dimitrijević, Jovan Čekić, Stevan Vuković, Zoran Pantelić, Dejan Anđelkoviċ, Slobodan Prvanović, Dejan Sretenović, Jasmina Čubrilo, Branimir Stojanović, Jovana Stokić, Bojana Burić, Mileta Prodanović, Marina Martić, Aleksandar Zistakis, Milan Ćirković, Jelisaveta Blagojević, Dubravka Đurić, Dragana Marković, Dragana Kitanović, Jelena Vesić, Svebor Midžić and Nebojša Milikić. The project was presented at symposia in Belgrade, Zagreb, Leipzig, Rotterdam, Vilnius and Ghent.
From 2001 to 2005 the project included an annual exhibition Flu_ID in Dom omladine Gallery in Belgrade. With a concept of careful selection and display of the works, it provided a debut for some of the most prominent emerging Serbian artists in the early 2000’s such as Vladimir Todorović, Slavica Panić, Veljko Onjin, Ana Nedeljković, Jelena Radić, Ivana Smiljanić, Nenad Kostić, Bojana Romić, Mirjana Stojadinović, Boris Šribar, Isidora Fićović, Jana Stojaković, Vojislav Klačar, Davor Dukić, Srđan Nedeljković, Gordana Ilić, Danijela Mladenović, Danijela Bogićević, Vladimir Krneta, Slavoljub Zajić and Tijana Knežević. The exibition has toured at venues in Leipzig and Zagreb, and the catalogue essays were written by Stevan Vuković, Jovan Čekić, Jasmina Čubrilo, Miodrag Šuvaković, Sunčica Ostojić and Olga Majcen Linn.
In 2005, Flu_ID project was transformed into a Transmedia Research tutorial course at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade.
