The project was conceived as a series of workshops with young professionals and mentors focusing on the analysis and new reading of social history and art production in Serbia and Yugoslavia after 1949. The project’s primary objective was to help the workshops’ participants develop an actively critical relationship vis-a-vis the way the history is written through continual discussions and subsequent practical work, so as to put this attitude into practice in the creative process within their respective media, drawing upon the archival film and audio materials made available for that purpose.

In terms of its structure, the project is composed of three parts: a film Workshop led by Želimir Žilnik, an audio Workshop led by Miodrag Miša Savić, and a workshop led by Milorad Mladenović where the ambient setting to accommodate the produced audio works was designed and executed. Local authors active in the visual arts scene and also expert in other fields were invited to act as mentors in this project. Their experience in transmitting content and working procedures from one field into another, coupled with specific pedagogical work, were the methodological challenge in this project.
