Darka Radosavljević and Stevan Vuković presented the recent production of this independent association of artists - Remont as well as future projects that are to happen in this gallery.

The gallery remont was established in 1999 as an initiative of a group of artists and art historians. The aim of this newly founded gallery was promoting contemporary art in Belgrade and Yugoslavia, as well as presentation of the contemporary international artistic scene. The main activities: publishing and electronic publishing, presentation of the contemporary artistic scene (exhibitions of domestic and foreign authors, presentations, promotions, shows, discussions, etc.), organisation of workshops. The gallery was initiated because of the lack of suitable premises for adequate treatment of contemporary art because state institutions of culture were closed to such modern artistic practice which quite often contained a critical discourse. In its three-year-long existence, the gallery Remont has shown remarkable activity in numerous exhibitions. The members of Remont are: Uroš Đurić, Žana Poliakov, Milica Tomić, Branko Pavić, Saša Gajin, Boris Mladenović, Jovan Čekić, Mirjana Đorđević, Tanja Ostojic, Saša Marković Mikrob, Dragan Protić, Đorđe Balmazović, Saša Rakezić, Zoran Ivković and Dragana Žarevac.
