KARSTEN KONRAD PARTICIPATES IN THE 53RD OCTOBER SALON IN BELGRADE
GOOD LIFE - PHYSICAL NARRATIVES AND SPATIAL IMAGINATIONS - BELGRADE, SEPTEMBER 22 – NOVEMBER 4, 2012, KARAĐORĐEVA 48
This year’s October Salon will be located at the building of the former Geodetic Institute, built in 1905-
1907 as the Belgrade Shareholders’ Association, one of the most beautiful but also one of the most neglected
monumental edifices in Belgrade. This inspirational location will be used as a space of ad hoc
transformation, where the works will be “implanted” in its present condition and in its existing historical
narrative and architectural design.
The exhibition GOOD LIFE — Physical narratives and spatial imaginations confronts the changes and
challenges of the past 20 years, and running, of course. It is a collection of site-specific works that faces the
dilemmas of our contemporary lives, the mess we are in, and the hopes we try to hold on to or to re-generate.
