Art in the Enemy Camp: Letter From Bohemian Belgrade

Art in the Enemy Camp: Letter From Bohemian Belgrade, Christian Parenti, San Francisco Bay Guardian
In the bomb-riddled land of Belgrade, artists still survive. Yugoslavian artist Vladimir Peric addresses the political and economic issues present in "the white city" through his art, which combines found objects from nature and high-tech debris. Christian Parenti writes in the San Francisco Bay Guardian that "artists -- who, under Yugoslavian socialism, lived well and tended to be apolitical -- are now more than ever forced to deal with two difficult, intertwined questions: economic survival and politics." Even so, artists such as Peric are still able to make ends meet.
