Serbian police attempts to close down art exhibition featuring works of arrested anarchosyndicalist and Belgrade artist
24 September 2009, BELGRADE:
The Serbian police tried to close down an art exhibition, which was organised by Belgrade-based artist Biljana Cincarević, scheduled to open on Monday at the Belgrade Youth Centre by ‘asking’ the artist to cancel it herself, but she refused as such demands have no legal basis. The art exhibition will feature artistic photographic works made by the artist and recently detained anarchosyndicalist ‘Rata’, created a year ago to inform the public of the immorality and greed of the Christian church, as well as its lack of concern for the poor.
This was yet another attempt by the police to repress voices of liberty in Serbia that demand a more just and free society.
