For 30 days, over 40 artists present their work within this year’s concept No One Belongs Here More Than You. October Salon is an open platform which includes an extensive public program with exhibitions, performances, lectures, workshops, and film projections.

The October Salon is the oldest and most distinguished visual arts exhibition in Serbia which has, throughout the years, dynamically transformed itself from a local review to an international event with a distinct accent on authors. Being a highly popular event in the city, around 50.000 visitors of different ages visit the October Salon during its six weeks.

Exhibition Nobody belongs here more than you is about everyday life and the question how we see and understand (in)human nature today. The exhibition got its name from Miranda July’s book of short stories and its starting point is the Red Min(e)d’s Living Archive project. Together with artists, collectives and audience, various “(non)work stations” will be created: the Exhibition (artworks and performances), the Perpetuum Mobile (contributed video artwork and different audio, photo and text documents), the Audio/Video Booth (on-the-spot recordings and documentation of artist talks, interviews, presentations and debates), the Reading Room (book presentations and an online Questionnaire about understanding feminist politics within contemporary art), the Digital Oven (on-the-spot digitization, editing and uploading), the Forum (a place for discussions, talks) and the Curatorial School (lectures and workshops for writing and voicing out emerging subjects in the field of contemporary art). During the opening days there will be talks with artists, discussions, performances, as well as curatorial workshops about how to communicate artwork and approach building knowledge through the Living Archive.

The focus of this year’s Salon will be feminism that exists in practice, social imagination of a future that possesses the driving force of transforming everyday life and at simultaneously carries within a policy of responsibility to the society and the environment.
