Tomislav Gotovac films included in If you know what exactly avant-garde is and how to name it, it probably isn’t avant-garde, right?!, a screening of and presentation on experimental films in former Yugoslavia during the 1960s and 1970s at e-flux.

The presentation and screening will explore the phenomena of amateur (unconventional, experimental, underground, alternative—all the denominations are legitimate) film developed in the cine clubs in the ’60s in former Yugoslavia, and the connection and mutual permeation between experiments in amateur cinematic art and the avant-garde art of the ’60s and ‘70s. The marginalized position of cine-clubs as peripheral and undemanding centers emphasized the creative freedom providing the avant-garde scene with almost subversive work for socialist content of the time.
