[ SEE images in contemporary art ]

Often, weblogs are much quicker with providing information about artists so far mainly unknown - or even anticipate who is going to be the talk of the day. On her weblog Trot-i-net, Ana introduced Tanja Ostojic as a Serbian artist in exile.

And now, after a considerable tumult, everybody in Austria – and also elsewhere – suddenly has lots of opinions about the 25 pieces campaign, featuring, amongst others, Ostojic’ works. The affair is evolving into a discussion about almost everything – Europe, Art and Women. And - about the Balkans: Art in migration sums up some interesting interpretations of the picture – one is, that the “wild” Balkans have to tame their “uncultured instincts” with some nice clothes in order to get into the EU. And another one – my favourite so far: Georgi Gospodinov sees the EU as a woman, waiting to be seduced by the “male” Balkans....

All this is more fun than I first thought it would more on the topic on Ana's blog....
