About This Project

“The Luncheon on the Grass” is a group work of four artists: M. Rakočević, D. Pešić, D. Sinančević and J. Duraković. Video recordings tried to reinterpret the famous picture by Édouard Manet more than a hundred years later. The only voice in the film reads news from daily newspapers, which directly indicates the time in which the present work is created.

The work was created in 2002, at the international workshop Real Presence in Belgrade.
