BDW’s 100% FUTURE SERBIA segment is devoted to the promotion of young creatives exhibited for the first time and established authors who want to exhibit for the first time in shop windows all over the city center.
The main idea is to transfer classical museum exhibitions to the streets of the city and to present them to a wider general audience, not only to those who regularly visit galleries and exhibitions. The exhibition will show authors who present their works as livesize objects and models. Visitors and passers-by have a rare opportunity to see the exhibited works during an easy stroll from Kalemegdan to Slavia, while also discovering interesting new locations presenting fresh Serbian design jewels all over the town, following a printed special map which is widely distributed. With the 100% FUTURE SERBIA project, Belgrade Design Week supports strongly the local design scene, while by positioning the artefacts in Belgrade’s shop windows, we support Belgrade’s retail and horeca in times of crisis, focusing for one week the attention of media, institutions and the general public to all segments of the creative industries.
Free participation for creatives and the grand opening with special awards is made possible by support from the patrons of the project, among them owners of shop windows in first place. In last years esteemed patrons of the project were the Ministry of Culture, BELEF, Gorenje and Knjaz Miloš.
