The Tune in Screening program focuses on film production and popular music created in Yugoslavia from the mid 60s and 70s.

Land of Tomorrow is pleased to present Tune in Screening: Psychedelic Moving Images from Socialist Yugoslavia. The exhibition will open on the 28th of October at our Lexington location with a reception starting at 7pm and will run through the 18th of November. The Tune in Screening program focuses on film production and popular music created in Yugoslavia from the mid 60s and 70s. It presents a variety of materials, predominantly a 75-minute loop of experimental film that exemplifies the openness and permissiveness of Yugoslavia’s brand of socialism when incorporating culture from the capitalist West. It also demonstrates how imports from the West had a profound effect on the local society, arts and, especially, the public visibility of this psychedelic lifestyle and popular culture. <br>

<br>

Tune in Screening features a selection of Yugoslavia’s pop and rock music classics to accompany the presentation of some of the period’s most significant artworks. These artworks, unlike the official state-sanctioned modernism on one side of the era’s aesthetic divide or its underground conceptual and neo-avant-garde counterpart, were boldly present in the everyday life of all citizens. <br>

<br>

While the state was supportive of some of the most radical and internationally recognized artistic manifestations of the era, it was at the same time harshly repressive with crackdowns on demonstrators, the imprisonment of political opponents and cultural workers, bans on movies and periodicals promoting cultural and political ideas, and attempts to introduce Western-style democracy to the country. Nevertheless, the combination of these opposing policies served to create one of the most vibrant and culturally exciting societies of the era. In the process, great art was created. <br>
