Remont is basically two things; an independent art association that was formed back in 1999 and an art gallery that opened in 2000. The word ‘Remont’ itself means ‘overhaul’ or ‘repair’.

I will be honest, I prefer to see art in the open, in public spaces. I usually associate museums and galleries with the upper class(ness) and stale air. Especially when it comes to big, well-known ones – I find that artwork exhibited there is usually ‘safe’, it won’t offend anyone or raise questions that matter to the wider communities. But they are pretty to look at.

But there are always exceptions, and Remont is one of them. I like that, more often than not, everything that is shown there deals with social issues, in one way or another but is also visually pleasing, and they have 8-9 exhibitions per year. The first floor is where they have their offices and a small space where you can buy some of their publications – my favorite one is ‘Zbogom Anderground’ (Goodbye Underground) with the works of Saša Marković Mikrob, and on the second floor is where the gallery space is.

The front door is usually locked, but ring the bell and someone will come and open the door.
