Tapiserije: The Art of Atelje 61 in Vojvodina, Serbia

Curated by Ulrikka Mokdad

“The Petrovaradin Fortress stands on the top of a cliff on the right bank of the Danube. On the left side of the mighty river lies the city of Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia and the administrative seat of the province of Vojvodina. When the fortress that dates back to the 17th century, had no longer any military significance after World War II, the army moved out in 1952 and large parts of Petrovaradin were transformed into artists’ studios. In 1961, some of the residing artists decided to set up a workshop where professional weavers were to create tapestries from artists’ cartoons.”
