For all arts & crafts lovers lucky enough to be in Belgrade on Fridays, Fijuk Sajam (“Whew” or, colloquially, “Loony” fair) is the place to see, and be.
Everything creative that exists on the margins of culture – up and coming artists, local and foreign comic books & zines, books, drawings, unique graphics, ceramics, badges, prints, paintings, gig posters, T-shirts, bags, anarchist publications, records… it’s all there, currently on a Friday once a month (check the FB page for info!), in Kvaka 22 cultural center, while location may change as well.
And it’s not just a trade fair for the above-mentioned goodies – each Fijuk features some special content, and it almost always includes a concert by local and foreign bands ranging from indie rock to hip hop to world music as well as screen printing (bring a T shirt to decorate it), exhibitions of featured artists, etc.
At some of the events, you can attend a comic book or tailor workshop and make your own comics or garments. Each Fijuk event lasts from 5 to 10pm, so there’s enough time to check all of its varied content thoroughly.
