U10 from Belgrade Serbia

An article by Severine Grosjean

Belgrade is known as the capital of the Balkans nightlife or as one of the central scenes of the Yugoslav war of the 90s. But it could also be known as the birthplace of the phenomenon of the art world Marina Abramovic. She is one of the few artists from the former Yugoslavia to have achieved international recognition. Indeed, the budget or the attention of the public authorities are not enough in this region, and it is a pity, because not only does it have a rich cultural heritage, but its contemporary art scene is in full swing.

Silence and noice in inter-action, Art and Science

  The art scene is small but existing. There are many spaces of exposure or experimentation. U10 is an independent art space of the most popular among the younger generations. This gallery welcomes young contemporary artists from the local and regional scene. Making the link with the need for self-organization in the local context, the artistic space U10 was created at the initiative of artists: Lidija Delić, Nina Ivanovic, Sava Knežević, Isidora Krstić, Iva Kuzmanović, Nemanja Nikolić, Marija Šević.

This space was in response to the inability of public articulation and professional development of young visual artists in the local environment, as well as the need for active and visible public artistic activity through self-organization.

Its independent exhibition space is fundamentally aimed at helping young artists who are just beginning their careers by exposing their work to the public. U10 Art Space works actively to create a culture of arts education, debate and exchange between artists, curators, art theorists, writers and the general public.

A fresh and feverish creative energy is not surprising. U10 fight the frustration of new artists and the lack of connection between young artists in Serbia. The opportunities are many and changes are happening, but they are slow.

In all times,  emerging or rebel artists have been looking for places to meet with audiences different from the usual channels of commerce.

From their protesting beginnings to their current position in a globalized and hyperconnected scene, independent art spaces have evolved and form a thousand and one facets of the “off” world of art in the making.


The Alternative Space is a new tool to discover art. Although they are difficult to characterize, two constants generally bring them together: they do not pursue lucrative goals, they are often directed by artists interested in curatorial questions.
