REX - B92 Cultural centre - was located in Jevrejska 16 street
During it's 4 years existence Cinema REX had grown into the most
dynamic cultural centre in Yugoslavia.
In 1998 we had
more than 300 different programs in our space and organized 20 programs
in bigger towns in Serbia. The premise of Cinema REX was that Belgrade
needs many arenas for the unleashing of artistic potential, and
thus it has provided resources for making new work and presenting
existing work in Yugoslav theatre, fine arts, music, film, video
and new media; similarly the centre has presented promotions and
Cinema REX has
been actively involved in contemporary social and political developments
and has provided a forum for issues which official institutions
shy away from or cannot afford has been actively engaged in local,
regional and international networking.
On April 2,
1999, a new management, illegally seized control of B92 (the radio
station and its subsidiary video production, publishing and Internet
divisions). As a B92 family member (B92 cultural centre), Cinema
REX subsequently left its original premises and has since refrained
from using the name in its public activities.
our own space we have mounted programs and projects in various venues
in Belgrade and are very active in cyber space (http://www.cyberrex.org).
We come back to space in Jevrejska street in October 2000 after
a brake down of regime of Slobodan Milosevic and returning of B92
to it's real founders
REX is oriented
towards production of Yugoslav art works, European cooperation,
new media and education, with accent on young authors and audience.
