Ada Gadomski writes about an interesting talk in London next week:
New Voices from Serbia
Salon Des Arts, 191 Queens Gate, London SW7 020 7589 3668
Under the Milosevic regime in Serbia, a group of 'official' writers and artists represented the reality of the country devastated by war in a distorted and simplified way. However, a generation of younger artists, who wrote, painted and sang about what was really happening coexisted alongside the "mainstream"... Vladimir Arsenijevic, Milena Markovic, Hajdana Baletic and Aleksandar Zograf, all established writers/artists, will join us to present their work, views and experiences of the conflict in former Yugoslavia and how it has influenced their lives, visions, and their writings. They will discuss the issues of living in war and post-war Serbia, the role of artists and the importance art in helping to start a dialogue...
