Students’ City Cultural Center (SCCC) in cooperation with the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade (FAA) and the Artget Gallery of Cultural Center of Belgrade is calling for participation in the 2nd International Student Biennial of Art of Book [s]BUK2.
The organizers have been nurturing the art of book design for more than 60 years. Idea is to affirm and present the work of students in the field that is today again significant in the art scene as well as in the education, and thus support and encourage the development of this specific filed.
The best design in each competition category will be awarded. In addition, special awards or commendations to the authors might also be announced.
The theme of biennial [s]BUK2 is free, and the call is open in two categories:
- Books: limited edition books, non-mass produced books, books with a high artistic range of research, books that push the boundaries of books;
- Photo books: limited edition books, non-mass produced books, books that use photography as a unique visual narrative, books that push the boundaries of a book by exploring the space of communication between two media – photographs and books.
Works that have been created during the last three years can be submitted to the competition.
The selection of works that will be exhibited at the exhibition of the second International Student Biennial of Art of Book [s]BUK2 will be decided on by a special jury for each category, when two awards (one for each category) will be awarded. The jury has the right to award special awards or commendations to the authors.
