BELGRADE DESIGN WEEK 2008 – DESIGNBOOM

‘the belgrade design week is at once the most eastern and the most southern european design festival,
the most western design festival of the balkans, the only design festival in the former yugoslavia
and globally unique in that it takes place in a country with no tradition in design whatsoever.’
jovan jelovac, chairman of the belgrade design week.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
