Couch / SOFA

Popkult - Belgrade
August 1st - 7th, 2006

Project SOFA is the multimedia/ambient installation of one of the main symbolic elements of psychoanalysis – couch/sofa. Couch/Sofa as a symbolic tool of psychoanalysis culture in the project becomes an artifact displayed on different places during July, August, and September 2006. To make it simple, “Sofa” will be on the tour through Serbia, as a symbolic homage to Dr. Freud, to theory and practice of psychoanalysis and its role in the cultural and intellectual history of the XX century.

We are inviting artists, art groups and associations to participate in/out performances in O3ONE Art Space where we expect the interaction between sofa and public, passengers, citizens. On the locations where the sofa will be displayed an artwork could be produced (photographs, video, installations…) which latter enters the selection for final exhibition with the main subject “Unconscious – Serbia on the sofa – an homage to Dr. Freud”. Works produced during the mentioned performances you can send to O3ONE art space, Andricev Venac 12, with the notice “For “Serbia on sofa” project” by the October 1st, 2006 (only works submitted on CD or DVD will enter the selection).
