Public Memory Lab and access to Basement
The legendary Klub Akademijab was run from the 1960 until the 90ies by art students and had a very important impact on the serbian subculture, art and music-scene. Many national Bands had their first public concerts there at the beginning of their carreer, international Bands were brought to belgrade to perform in the Club. With the income students could realise their study trips abroad.
In the 1980ies the Club played a very central role in the development of the music- and culture scene of begrade. The Biografies of many Artists and Intellectuals are connected to the Club.
Like many other public facilities and institutions in belgade, the Club was privatised at the end of 1990ies and after major problems with the private owners it was closed in the 2000ers.
In collaboration with the serbian Visual Artist Vladimir Miladinovic a Timeline of the Aera of the Club will be drawn on the wall in the Lecture room of the Faculty. Artists and Students of the Club-time will be invited to a storytelling Cafe on Friday before the Museum night to tell and share their memories. The Timeline showing the period of the club will be the central element within the Memory lab, enriched with the personal memories of the storytelling-cafe-participants and visitors in the Museum night.
The Timeline will be hand-drawn onto the wall in the lecture room, and will show the timeperiod of the club, as well as political, social and historical data at the same time. Objects like Tapes, Records, Tickets, Letters, Pictures, Newspapers, Fanzines etc will be displayed. Thus a Museum will emerge that tells the History of the place through its former Visitors and guests. Former protagonists; musicians and artists will bring their music of the time and play in a very informal way with record players and taperecorders.
The former Club in the basement will stay in its original conditon, completely devasted and empty, with many grafitti drawings on the wall. Presented as an archeological Zone visitors can view the site and add their comments on the wall.
