The artwork methodology of Branislav Nikolić, which consists of salvaging discarded elements of architecture, ﬂat interiors, furniture and timber, and recycling them in a creative process for the purpose of making new art products, is intertwined with all the aforementioned semantic layers of the term “secondary architecture. This syntagm denotes the economy of salvaging and recycling materials that are so typical for building so-called ‘cardboard houses’ in the Romany settlements.
The painting workshop street Architecture is aimed at acquainting young people with the terminology of architecture itself and its “multiple meanings“. Their task is to realize how contemporary architecture is implemented into existing urban surroundings and how they jointly create and write the history of the street
and the city.
It is known that children are tied to their environment and that the physical environment aﬀects them as much as social and cultural environments do. Modern architecture recognizes the importance of children’s participation in decision-making related to their life, and respects the voice of children in connection to the form and creation of their physical environment. The aim of the workshop is to familiarize children with various forms of architecture and to understand children’s perceptions of a kindergarten space.
The workshop provides children with an active role in conceiving and designing space which is intended for them. We examine the modalities of participatory urban design by combining methods of gathering information from children and engaging in direct work with them on the development of envisioned yard areas and playgrounds in the city. We seek answers to the following questions: what is the appearance of a yard that is ftting for a child of the XXI century, and what do children have to say about that.
CCB Workshop Artedu is a serial of creative workshops whose basic idea is getting the youth
(especially high-school students) familiar with the program of the Belgrade Cultural Center. The program
consists of presenting the exhibition, discussions with artists and curators, and practical applications of the artistic approach characteristic for a given exhibition (drawing, painting, photography, video…).
The workshop program is dedicated to research into forms of interdisciplinary collaboration of students of art and design. Through the implementation of a joint project, groups of students realize the object (from the concept to the realization of the prototype), which is at the same time an artistic object, spatial sculpture, object of use or a decorative element.
