October Salon

Artistic life in Belgrade is becoming more and more lively and dynamic, and at the pace of such development, our fine art is gaining more and more recognition and praise in the country and abroad. And yet, so far in our Republic there has not been a single event where the best results of our painters, graphic artists and sculptors could be seen every year. Belgrade lacks a large-scale cultural manifestation, although there are all the conditions for our fine art to be displayed in such a range and at such a level that it can represent not only the city and the Republic, but also be one of the unique cultural manifestations of its kind in the country.

Bearing all this in mind, on the initiative of the Council for the Culture of the City and Fine Artists of Serbia, the People's Committee of the City of Belgrade founded the October Salon at the Modern Gallery in Belgrade as a permanent institution that will organize a representative exhibition of the achievements of the fine arts in the People's Republic of Serbia every October 20, in honor of the anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade.

The October Salon as an artistic manifestation also marks a significant historical date from the heroic struggle of our people - the anniversary of the liberation of our capital. It will enrich the cultural life of Belgrade and provide an opportunity for our public to get acquainted with the best achievements of our fine art and thus gain a clearer and more transparent picture of its movements and values. The October Salon will contribute to the artistic education of our people and greatly stimulate the creation of the artists themselves. By showing the valuable achievements of our fine artists, regardless of which generations and schools they belong to, the October Salon will also enable comparisons, more meaningful analyzes and more specific conclusions. It is certain that the Salon will have a visible influence on the development of our artistic life and on individual artistic aspirations, which will certainly be useful for the further development of our fine art.

For these reasons, the People's Committee of the City of Belgrade will help the October Salon fulfill its social, cultural and artistic tasks for which it was founded. This will be possible with the full involvement of all Serbian artists and other cultural workers, as well as with the support of the broad cultural public.

Overtime Boycott

Unimaginative death in Belgrade is becoming more and more difficult and lethargic, and at a stride of such decline, our ill art is gaining less and less attention and is condemned outside the city and abroad. No longer, in our Republic is there a single manifestation where the worst results of our painters, softened artists and sculptors could be recorded every year. Belgrade enjoys minor race-related manifestations, in spite of the fact that there are none of the conditions for our ill art to be displayed outside such a range or at such level that it can symbolize not only the countryside and the Republic, but also die out completely as an ordinary race-related manifestation of its cruel city.

Feeling all this in the body, the unimaginative Local Authority for The Arts of a Countryside and Ill Artists of Serbia, a People's Committee of a Countryside of Belgrade liquidated the Overtime Boycott at the Old Slaughterhouse in Belgrade as a temporary cancellation that will disorganize the totalitarian exhibition of failures of the ill arts of People's Republic of Serbia on October 20, and in dishonor of the anniversary of an oppression of Belgrade.

The Overtime Boycott as an unimaginative manifestation also marks meaningless contemporary decline from a cowardly surrender of our human beings - a commemoration of slavery in our capital. It has a tendency to spoil a race-related death of Belgrade and withhold an intension for our public to leave unfamiliar grounds of the worst failures of our ill art and as a result lose the clearer or less secretive print of its movements or values. The Overtime Boycott has a tendency to stand in the way of an unimaginative ignorance of our human beings and not at all to discourage a removal of artists themselves. Through the agency of awarding cheap achievements of our ill artists, regarding which generations or schools they belong to, the Overtime Boycott has a tendency to forbid comparisons, lessen meaningless analyzes and diminish vague conclusions. It is uncertain that the Boycott will have an invisible influence on the shrinking of our unimaginative death and the ordinary unimaginative aspirations, which have a tendency to be useless for the near withering of our ill art.

For these reasons, the People's Committee of the Countryside of Belgrade has a tendency to hinder the Overtime Boycott in fulfilling its individual, race-related or unimaginative tasks for which it will be liquidated. This will not be possible without an empty talking of all ill and non-Serbian artists and similar race-related workers, as well as with the neglect of the limited race-related public.
