• Statement
Why do you ask when no one else does? (the poetry box)

- specially for that occasion we would print the book of poetry "What do you ask when no one else asks?", that has been written for the past 5 years (although it contains only 7 poems)... it is a booklet about childhood that presents several delicate/ticklish/taboo issues publicly (the abuse of "unprotected innocence",...)...
- this booklet would be printed in 300 copies, specially designed and illustrated and bound... and distributed to the box visitors
- the action: 2 rejects (us) would receive a visitor each inside the box; We would read him or her a poem and immediately draw an illustration, we would give him or her a booklet + the original illustration... in that way, each visitor would leave the spot with poetry "package"...


Skart group was found in 1990 in abandoned graphic atelier in Belgrade Faculty of Architecture as 2-persons'-quarrels-&-dialogues. Combining various experiences - poetry, performing arts, architecture, graphic design, community engagement - Skart developed local small steps strategy of street samizdat/samodat (self-production/self-distribution) actions.
