Art and madness
Project is inspired by the public talk organised within the project Extravagant bodies: Extravagant minds and aims to open the dialogue on the topic of mental health through art production in Serbia.
At the same time, it is pointing to the relation that the wider community has toward notions such as illness, otherness, difference, isolation, fear, disobedience and prejudice. Project deals with those who are misfits to the rules of the system by their own nature and as such they are isolated while understanding of their condition by wider community is shaped by prejudice and fear.
Within the project Kiosk created a partnership with the Special Hospital for Psychiatric Diseases “Dr. Laza Lazarević” and realised series of interviews with patients. Gained material represents the basis for audio instalation Disobediant by Proxy presented on October salon 2011 and video art piece by Dorijan Kolundžija produced in 2012-2013.
