Exibition 17Belgrade > Helsinki

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 Finland is presiding the EU from July to December 2019, Helsinki 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 Romania.

Marija Piroški, an author from Serbia, visited Helsinki in July 2019 and took photos of places, events, scenes and people that reminded her of Belgrade. At the same time, Tanja Mikkola, an author from Finland, visited Belgrade and photographed the city and its residents through the lens of a nostalgic photographer. The photos of Tanja and Marija 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
