They rot, mold and mold.
Trying to imagine the day of the inauguration of the exhibition Beyond in Belgrade in a year like 1997, we will be able to notice from outside in the courtyard first the experimental music that penetrates through the premises of the Center for Cultural Decontamination, with sounds as surreal as time itself we are calling it to mind. Then these verses from Omar Khajani’s Rubairs in an obsessive and at the same time indecipherable way sprout up here and there in the acoustic landscape created by Ilir Bajri and become, as he himself says, “a metaphor of the nineties in Kosovo where we were dying a little every day “.
In fact, the works of the four artists not only represent the time and the historical situation of Kosovo in real time and even preceding it, but also mark a dividing point where the traditional forms of art up to that time are surpassed.
The works in the exhibition consist of the foreboding and anxiety of a decade materialized through contemporary artistic mediums. And those cloudy visions will be fulfilled only a few months after the opening of the exhibition with the outbreak of war and attacks against civilians.
