Idoine & Pierre Courtin - You Should Find a Real Job


Agnès b & Pierre Courtin – “New world order is here, Resist” – 2020

Galeriste à Sarajevo, commissaire d’exposition, artiste, collectionneur, mais aussi iconoclaste et bricoleur, Pierre Courtin se définit comme un acteur de la Scène de l’Art, défenseur des arts contemporains comme autant d’espaces de liberté, d’expérimentations, de rencontres.

Corpus de dessins commencé en 2004 à Sarajevo, les Never ending stories reflètent la folie quotidienne, folie de la guerre, des mouvements sociaux, du consumérisme et du racisme, folie des peuples et des hommes à s’auto-détruire. Ils sont également une manière personnelle d’exorciser la brutalité du monde véhiculé par les mass-médias.

Author : Jon Blackwood / Graphik-Design : Maja Zeco

The book derives from a period of three years of research and participatory observation around the differing art activities in BiH. In a challenging contextual essay, the key drivers of contemporary art in the country are conside

Covert-page,-Jon-Blackwoodred. The main themes discussed are the legacy of the 1992-95 war, the collapse of infrastructure, informality, futavizam, art activism and politics, art and the environment, Yugoslavism, and diaspora.

In addition to fleshing out these broader themes, the book will consider key works of contemporary art in grater detail, in order to open out the complex interplay of these themes in individual works.

Lavishly illustrated, the book will provide a key starting point both for the general and the academic reader, and will stand as a guide to BiH art for many years to come.
