SCHOOL FOR GIRLS OF JELENA OF ANGJU
Paris 2017; Rome 2018
SCHOOL FOR GIRLS OF JELENA OF ANZHOU is the name of the project that corresponds to the advanced ideas of Jelena of Anjou, queen and nun, a Catholic woman who received a cult from the Orthodox Church, the first woman to rule an area of the country and the first woman to be honored in Serbian literature. Queen Jelena was the wife of King Uroš, the mother of Kings Dragutin and Milutin, and an important founder and benefactor. At her court, she had a school for poor girls, which is one of the earliest testimonies about the education of female children in medieval Serbia. It can be safely said that she represented not only one of the most enlightened, but also one of the most influential figures in Serbia at the end of the thirteenth and the beginning of the fourteenth century. The presentation and lectures were held by Prof. Dr. Svetlana Tomin, professor at the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad. The author of the photographs of the monastery Gradac, old Raška, is prof. Jovan Milinov. The program is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia – Directorate for Diaspora and in cooperation with the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Rome and the Italy-Serbia Association.
RM GUERA: BD UNCHAINED
The exhibition of the comic artist Rajo Milošević Gera, in the Cultural Center of the RS in Paris, entitled BD UNCHAINED from 02.02. to 03.04. 2017 We exhibited over 70 original works, drawings, boards, illustrations, 8 large print formats on textiles, 16 small prints on foam, all the time we showed a video-documentary film about the author and video tutorials, broadcast a slide projection of over 500 drawings-illustrations. RM Gera is a comic artist who is highly appreciated in France (the biggest French publishers publish his comic albums), and the reaction and number of visitors during the exhibition is a good confirmation of the success of the implemented program. The preparation of the exhibition was thorough and demanding, since the author of the project (N. Milojević) and the author of the works (RM Gera) live in different cities (Barcelona and Belgrade) and the production of the exhibition was done in Serbia to be realized in Paris! Gera demanded to check and approve every move, starting from PR activities to the very content and plan of the installation. The outcome, to the satisfaction of all actors, was a very successfully implemented project. Communication took place in Serbian, French, English, Spanish (and occasionally using gestures). Rmguera is one of the most respected contemporary comic book authors in the world AND one of the best cartoonists – by hand!
