Dušan Savić, Belgrade
Dušan Savić (Belgrade, 1988) is a curator and art producer. He graduated in Art History at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade.
He began his curatorial career as an assistant curator at the Gallery of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 2010. In the following years, he developed his interest in contemporary art and gallery practices by founding the Inex Film Gallery, an independent cultural center Kvaka 22, but also working as the visual arts program director of the Belgrade Youth Center (2015–2018). At the same time, he was hired as the curator of the Franklin Foundation in Belgrade (2015–2020). During 2020, he worked as a guest curator of the Cultural Center Kino Šiška in Ljubljana. With a group of artists and curators, he founded the collective Institute for Applause, which deals with the problematization of gallery space, performative arts and the art of gesture. He is the editor of several books and catalogs: the monograph of the Inex Film Gallery, the monograph of the British artist Sean Dower, Best Before Death publication of the British artist Bill Drummond and the book Lie and Theft as Practice. He has also prepared texts for many catalogs of solo and group exhibitions, Manek magazine and online magazine Widewalls. He has twice been shortlisted for the Pohvala Award for his contribution to the local contemporary art (2016 and 2018). Currently, Dušan is employed as art producer for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.
My field of interest is new media art, video art, performative and participatory arts. With this approach, I`m tring to erase the border between the curator and the artist in order to better understand the conceptualization, production and presentation of the work of art.
