Formverk (art zone) was founded 2004 by Niclas Hallberg and Stina Pehrsdotter. It works on a domestic and international basis, to realise artistic exchanges and co-operations. From a base in Sweden they operate the residency RAJ (paradise in Serbian) in Banatska Dubica, Serbia – a dynamic space for experimental work and collaborations. Formverk (art zone) is also the initiator of the Belgrade Art Fair, an international art event that took place for the first time in October 2012.
At Supermarket 2013 Formverk (art zone) shows Zoran Todorović, Belgrade. His works often deal with issues of surveillance and control, shedding light on uncomfortable truths and concealed motives. Todorović has exhibited his works in numerous leading art institutions in Europe and beyond, and was the author of the Serbian pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale.

Formverk (art zone) established 2004, is a dynamic, non-profit space for contemporary art and art projects. We work on a domestic, as well as an international basis, to realise artistic exchange and cooperation. To benefit a deeper understanding of emerging and experimental art, we include public discussions with artists and curators. We have comprehensive contacts with other artist-run spaces around the world, and ongoing collaborations with artists in Serbia, Albania, Poland, Bulgaria, Turkey, Yerevan, Germany, UK, India, Brazil and USA. Formverk (art zone) also arrange exhibitions in other spaces, obtains commissions and gives lectures. We actively participate in the art scene in Sweden and abroad, and firmly believe that it is important to share experiences with others – and have fun!
