On February 6, the third exhibition in the Global Positions series opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) in Belgrade, Serbia. This time, the exhibition is a solo presentation by Amsterdam-based artist Zachary Formwalt, entitled Three Exchanges, which consists of three interrelated video works exploring the often-invisible impact of global capitalism. The Global Positions exhibitions are developed from collaborations between the SMBA and like-minded art institutions around the world. The first in the series, Made in Commons, resulted from an exchange with the KUNCI cultural centre in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and the second established a relationship between the art scenes in Beirut and Amsterdam.
Art historian Steyn Bergs interviews the MoCAB’s chief curator Zoran Erić about the meaning of Formwalt’s installation in a former communist country, Serbia’s ‘in-between’ position in terms of the postcolonial discourse and the value of institutional collaborations.
