Cinemaniac represents a year-long interdisciplinary research platform which questions the relation between film/moving images and contemporary art and it is realized in the form of an exhibition. 
The programme platform  Think Film, as research in progress, leans on previous experiences of working with the historical heritage of experimental film and contemporary artistic audiovisual production, on works which form a specific relationship with the idea of film as a space for thinking film by other means, criticism of film, places where social, ideological and cultural aspects reflect.

presents solo exhibition by

Slobodan Sijan: Film leaflet

Curated by: Branka Benčić and Aleksandra Sekulić
The visual production of works on paper, the Film Leaflet by Slobodan Šijan being part of it as well, represents an art form where artists experiment with a cinematic manner of thinking and a wish to cover the fragmentary world of cinematic effects, notes and images. These are nonconventional works, intertextual in their nature, which, being departed from standard cinematic technology, and taking different research approaches, by means of different media, such as text, collage, photography, and video, refer to the world of film, cinematic culture and language. In the art of the avant-garde and the neo-avant-garde, “film by other means” represents the deconstruction of integral elements of film which become an independent area of film expression (photography, film strip, editing, screening). The intention was to acquaint a wide audience with the experimental cinematic work by Slobodan Šijan as well as with his vision of film and critical practice in his art.
