Belgrade Conversations (1975)

A selection of photoprints from a work consisting of nine images — The Organization of Culture Under Worker’s Self-Management (1975) —first exhibited in 1976 at John Weber Gallery, New York as part of an exhibition of projects by (Provisional) Art & Language.

The basis for this work was a week-long series of public discussions held at the Student Cultural Center, Belgrade in November 1975. The context of these discussions is discussed in Another Look at the Social Dimension of Indexing. This text, which was drafted in 1988 and revised for online publication in 2002, is an account of selected conversational encounters with artists and the public that were staged between 1974 and 1976 by members of Art & Language (New York) and (Provisional) Art & Language.
