Danilo Prnjat's Residency in Skopje by Lokomotiva

The artist Danilo Prnjat, who has been questioning the institutional politics of the art world in his work, was invited by the Lokomotiva to a ten-day working visit to Skopje with the task of mapping and exploring the local institutional structure. 

While he was researching the subject of culture in local cultural institutions, as well as what kind of culture is produced by the leading cultural institutions and with what ideological / class goal, he made several photos. 

See some of his impressions on Skopje!
