DUPLEX100m2 – Obala Kulina bana 22 – First Floor – 71000 – Sarajevo – Bosna and Herzegovina

“Without culture we have even less”. I had to think about these words, visiting Sarajevo a few weeks ago. Meeting and speaking with artists, art institutions and cultural workers in Sarajevo, I am now convinced: with culture, old and new, we can achieve more and better! However, just like everywhere else, Sarajevo needs to invent new organizational and financial models in order to ‘make’ culture work for today and tomorrow.
What Duplex has been and is doing is a perfect example!»
Chris Dercon, director of Tate Modern.

11329829_1030253933658967_151232738409036238_nDuplex10m2 has been situated on a new address in the city-center of Sarajevo since July 2012 and has since then emerged into Duplex100m2. The gallery’s new address is Obala Kulina Bana 22. The new space is an apartment of 100m2 built in the Austrian-Hungarian style with a view on the Miljacka River, devoted to contemporary art. It is separated into two parts. The first part, the “living room”, kept its domestic character, while at the same time serving as an office, a space for meetings and discussions, and a show room for the presentation of artistic works. The second part of the apartment is dedicated to exhibitions: two standard white cube exhibition spaces.

From 2004, Duplex100m2 supports the art scene of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Balkans. It hosts numerous artists, enables them production, exhibition and presentation of their works; plans and organizes exhibitions on the local, regional and international level; it enhances the visibility of art in Bosnia and Herzegovina out of its boarders, especially on international contemporary art fairs; it makes connections between numerous contemporary art actors – artists, curators, institutional representatives and private partners; everything with the aim to foster new projects and establish an unusual platform of artistic encounters.

Duplex100m2, with its strong network and on-the-ground experience, also develops its service and advisory activities for international project leaders in Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina: agencies, institutions, companies, and individuals who are active in the field of art and culture. Duplex’s team ensures total or partial planning, implementation, communication, logistical support and monitoring of projects.

Duplex100m2 is expanding its activities in a space which at the same time serves as an exhibition space, manufacturing shop, agency for project design and development, show room for hosting art lovers and art collectors, as well as a space of encounters and actions.

Od jula 2012. godine, Duplex10m2 se nalazi na novoj adresi u centru Sarajeva i postaje Duplex100m2. Galerija se od sada nalazi na adresi Obala Kulina Bana 22. Radi se o stanu od 100m2 koji je građen u austro-ugarskom stilu sa pogledom na rijeku Miljacku, a koji je posvećen savremenoj umjetnosti. Stan je podijeljen na dva dijela. Prvi dio, „dnevni boravak“, koji je zadržao karakteristike životnog prostora, služi kao ured, prostor u kojem se odvijaju susreti i diskusije, te kao stalni show room umjetničkih dijela koje predstavljamo. Drugi dio stana se dijeli na dvije prostorije posvećene izložbama: dva standardna izložbena prostora u formi bijele kocke (white cube).

Od 2004. godine, Duplex100m2 podržava umjetničku scenu u Sarajevu, Bosni i Hercegovini i na Balkanu, ugošćava mnoge umjetnike, omogućava im da proizvode, izlažu i predstavljaju svoje radove, osmišlja i organizuje izložbe na lokalnom, regionalnom i međunarodnom nivou, potiče vidljivost umjetnosti u Bosni i Hercegovini izvan njenih granica, naročito na međunarodnim sajmovima savremene umjetnosti, povezuje veliki broj aktera savremene umjetnosti – umjetnike, kustose, odgovorne osobe u institucijama, privatne partnere, a sve u cilju poticanja novih projekata i konkretizacije neobične platforme umjetničkih susreta.

Duplex100m2, sa svojom snažnom mrežom i velikim iskustvom na terenu, razvija također uslužne i savjetodavne aktivnosti prema međunarodnim nosiocima projekata u Sarajevu i Bosni i Hercegovini: agencijama, institucijama, preduzećima i fizičkim licima koji djeluju na polju umjetnosti i kulture. Tim Duplexa100m2 osigurava potpuno ili djelomično osmišljavanje, provedbu, komunikaciju, logističku podršku i praćenje provedbe samog projekta.

Duplex100m2 proširuje svoje aktivnosti u prostoru koji služi istovremeno kao izložbeni prostor, radionica, agencija za osmišljavanje i proizvodnju projekata, show room koji ugošćava ljubitelje umjetnosti i kolekcionare, te kao mjesto susreta i djelovanja.

Depuis Juillet 2012 Duplex10m2 a une nouvelle adresse dans le centre-ville de Sarajevo et devient la galerie Duplex100m2. La galerie est désormais située sur le quai Obala Kulina Bana, au numéro 22. C’est un appartement de 100m2, au style austro-hongrois et avec vue sur la rivière Miljacka, qui est aujourd’hui dédié à l’art contemporain. L’appartement est divisé en deux parties complémentaires. La première partie, le « séjour », qui conserve le caractère domestique du lieu, fait office de bureau, de salon accueillant rencontres et discussions, et de show room permanent d’œuvres d’artistes que nous défendons. La seconde partie de l’appartement se décline en espaces alloués aux expositions : deux salles d’expositions standard en white-cube.

Depuis 2004 Duplex100m2 soutient la scène artistique de Sarajevo, de Bosnie-Herzégovine et des Balkans, accueille de nombreux artistes, leur permet de produire, d’exposer et de diffuser leurs travaux, conçoit et reçoit des expositions confrontant les scènes locale, régionale et internationale, développe la visibilité de l’art de Bosnie-Herzégovine en-dehors de ses frontières, principalement lors des foires internationales d’art contemporain, met en relation un grand nombre d’acteurs de l’art contemporain, artistes, curateurs, responsables d’institutions, partenaires privés, tous d’horizons différents, afin de susciter de nouveaux projets et de mettre en actes concrets une plateforme singulière de rencontres artistiques.

Duplex100m2, forte de son réseau et de son expérience du terrain, développe également une activité de service et de conseil à destination des porteurs internationaux de projets à Sarajevo et en Bosnie-Herzégovine : agences, institutions, entreprises et particuliers engagés dans les domaines de l’art et de la culture. Son équipe assure tout ou partie de la conception, des étapes de réalisation, communication, de la production logistique et du suivi opérationnel d’un projet.

Duplex100m2 étend donc ses activités dans un lieu qui tient tout à la fois de l’espace d’exposition, de l’atelier de production, de l’agence de conception et de production de projets, du show-room accueillant amateurs et collectionneurs, de lieu de rencontres et de résidence.
