Exhibition titled "Pshychogeographical Research" presents the activities of the artistic couple Readle& Jeremic concentrated in the last seven years on the specific practice of “estheticized documentation" which consists of different media presented concepts, projects and works which the artists developed and implemented.

The title clearly refers to the show lettrist-situationist neologism “psychogeography” and situationist’ practice which in this case involves the transfer and translation of this practice in certain geographical - (space - time) - psychological category. The exhibition deals with locating and questioning of symptoms in a society in the context of "economic transition” and cause-consequential moves of local-global politics. The focus is on the marginal, the oppressed and the precarious structure of society, ie. those most fragile social areas where the force of power of the system fatally collide. There are works that deal with position of the Roma community in Serbia: video "Belleville" (2009) - about the recent destruction of Roma settlements by the Belgrade authorities and the protests which were then followed in front of City hall, projects "Writing on the Sky" (2008) and "Under the Bridge" (2004), as well as works in which are the protagonists: the salesmen of the flea market, precarious workers, economic migrants and immigrants: "The series of monuments - unforgettable moments in the lives of New Belgrade workers" (2007), "" Sandy " and Horrorkatze Macht Terror "(2003) - which, inter alia, deal with criticism and informational-communicational potential and overloading.

Within this occasion will be presented the publication "Pshychogeographical Research" published by MoCAV with theoretical texts by: Suzana Milevska (Skopje), Sezgin Boynik (Helsinki), Gordana Nikolic (Novi Sad) and the artists.
