19.08. PHOTO EXHIBITION „BEHIND BARS“ by IGOR ČOKO – Opening 19:00 @Galerija Slavka Kopača Vinkovci

What is happening behind the bars and closed heavy iron doors of the prison cells? Igor Čoko (born in 1975 in Knin, Croatia) lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. He is a graduate of ethnology and anthropology. From the perspective of a visual anthropologist, he uses documentary and street photography to research the sensibility of people, street life and the life of stigmatized groups. He is the author of printed photography books “Subversive Aesthetics of the Street: Images of Opulent Reality,” “Behind Bars: Life of convicts in the County Prison in Belgrade” and “Karaburma, My Ghetto.”

Opening on 19:00, and you can see these great photos whole week, until 26.08.

On Friday 23.8. we will host last year’s winner of our life achievement award – great translator, poet, journalist Vojo Sindolic will come and present his latest works. We will have in focus the one which explains how jazz was influenced by beat poets and vice versa – „Jazz Beat – o utjecaju jazza na djela Beat generacije i obrnuto“ (Ex Libris, 2017) . His works shaped lives of many generations, so many important books entered our system thanks to Vojo Sindolic. And he’s still furious and hard working, there are so many doors still left to open for us, we are glad to have him as a guest and a friend
