Nostalgia

Exhibition 18Belgrade > Berlin

The project "Applied Nostalgia" has been designed as a sequence of exhibitions of photographs taken by two eminent photographers - one from Serbia and one from the EU Presidency country. Since Germany is presiding the EU from July to December 2020, Berlin will be next European city which will be presented to the citizens of Serbia in unique and very special way, just as Belgrade will be presented to citizens of Germany.

Marko Kecman, an author from Serbia, took photos of places, events, scenes and people that reminded her of Belgrade. At the same time, Uwe Jesiorkowski, an author from Germany, photographed Belgrade and its residents through the lens of a nostalgic photographer. The photos of Uwe and Marko make up the "Applied Nostalgia" exhibition.

The "Applied Nostalgia" project is conceived as a series of joint photography exhibitions of two photographers, one from Serbia and the other from an EU presiding country. The project is yet another way to further enhance the cultural exchange between the two countries and promote European values and Serbia’s cooperation with the EU Member States. This exhibition is part of the activities of the Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia
