Gallery Brodac was established as an enthusiastic effort of several volunteers willing to fight against social-economic and political oppression and youth indifference.
A group of young artist organized "working actions“ to clean and create space where they can exhibit and share space with their colleagues, since the government nor other were willing to take care about the rising art our young generation has to offer.
Our primary mission is to promote and enhance contemporary art scene, in the country and abroad, which will be real contribution to positive changes in society.
We are ready to improve the life-quality of our citizens by bringing up the most important thing for their personal and common growth: culture. Art is foremost a usefull and necessary tool in fighting illiteracy and the strongest advocate of people.
An artist is a worker constantly representing all workers who work for living – earning fairly through the creation process – producing the product for good of all.
By creating and giving opportunities for artists and audience to interract in an independent space, excluded from any unwanted political or social impact - surrounded only by quality art-works, we will improve both: the life-standard of citizens by being a conduit toward the public, so as continuing the process of de-marginalizing culture in order to make our contemporary art scene stronger and bigger – as it deserves to be.
Death to the silence! Liberty to the people!
Why fund it?
Gallery opened its doors with a first exhibition on 13 May 2016.
"Reconstruction at Gallery Brodac" is the name of the first collective exhibition in this gallery, which presented the works of established European artists such as Jusuf Hadzifejzovic, Louis James, Pierre Courtine ...
This was followed by a period of construction work by us, young artists and the founders of the center.
During the summer of 2016, the gallery has opened its doors for two more exhibitions, representing a major collective exhibition titled "Contemporary refresh" presenting works of 21 young artists from Bosnia and Herzegovina with more than 150 art works.
Thanks to this exhibition we were able to continue working in the gallery and its renovation. U
nfortunately, we do not live in a suitable environment for the achievement of the objectives in the field of contemporary art, and therefore we decided for this move.
In the country where utopia is previling the strenght of spirit of young artists is wourthed of acknowledgement and worth of fundung.The gallery will give the opportunity to art of Sarajevo to flourish.
Since the current art scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina is in slow motion without major activities, the gallery would be fresh new start to move the scene from the curent position.
It will not be possible in short period to finish construction work of the gallery without of the support, Especialy since the leagal bodies of the country are diminishing and ignoring the art and anything related to it.
The main objective of this project is to complete the basic construction works in the gallery. We are getting ready for the long winter, and the gallery is necessary to provide basic things like:
1.The system of heating.-1400
2. An electrical energy and instalations-1050
3.Water and sanitation-800
4.The new entrance doors-2000
These are the basics that are needed to make our idea went further. We are present to support and introduce contemporary art to all, in order to serve society for the common good of everyone of us!
What do we do if the goal is exceeded?
We hope to reach our goal, which would be for us a huge success.
But in the case of a miracle, and if we exceeded our goal, we are determined that all resources are directed to the development of the gallery, which will show through the transparent work program of the same.
Through various activities, creative workshops and encouraging young artists, we shall try to focus all funds raised in these channels.
All this will show through the calendar of activities.
The same calendar will be posted on this page if we reach the half of our goal!
