THE FOURTH BIENNAIL OF STAGE DESIGN
5th – 30th September 2002
In the Museum of Applied Art in Beograd, YUSTAT presented, for the fourth time, the Yugoslav stage production at the Great exhibition, accompanied with an extensive catalog with 330 items listed. The Biennial categories remained unchanged, and so did the selection procedure. At the Great exhibition were presented the works most convenient for transfer from the theatrical stage into a gallery context; also presented was extensive documentation about numerous stage happenings in Serbia and Montenegro.
In the accompanying program was held the annual conference of the Governing Board and of the Publishing and Communication Committee (PCC) of the international organization OISTAT, with more than 30 participants from all over the world: from USA, Canada, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Great Britain, Finland, Sweden, Holland (Netherlands), Hungary, Bulgaria etc. One guest from Germany, Wolfgang Storch, professor at the Artistic Academy in Dusseldorf and author of the exhibition “Stage Eye” which was presented in Beograd as part of the Days of German Culture, held a workshop for the postgraduate students of the University of Arts. With this same group of students, Pamela Howard performed the play “Scenomanifesto” in the “Cinema Rex” (in Beograd); and, in cooperation with the Publishing House “Clio”, YUSTAT published a translation of her book What is Scenography? (Routledge, London, 2002) into Serbian language.
