Pera Museum’s Cold Front from the Balkans exhibition curated by Alenka Gregoriè and Ali Akay brings together contemporary artists from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.

The exhibition focuses on different generations of artists and art groups from the Balkan region. The exhibition avoids the usual unflattering political connotations the region’s name inevitably brings up but instead focuses on a natural phenomenon — the wind. The exhibition title refers to the well-known saying in Turkish: “Cold wind blowing from the Balkans” which conveys winter’s arrival and is most commonly used in television weather reports. Following this very common idiom in Turkey, the exhibition includes artists who deal with their immediate surroundings, reacting and commenting on their social, political and cultural milieu, such artists are Maja Bajeviæ, Braco Dimitrijeviæ, Vadim Fiškin, Irwin, Laibach, Mladen Miljanoviæ, Ivan Moudov, OHO, Dan Perjovschi, Mladen Stilinoviæ, Ulay, and Sislej Xhafa amongst others. In this selection of striking works made in different media ranging from video to photography, drawing to installation; the exhibition aims to create a new dialogue between Balkan artists from different generations and provide insight through an alternative point of view.
