“Differentiated neighborhoods of New Belgrade”
produced by Centre for Visual Culture, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade:
(ecological history of New Belgrade)
Seen from the terraces of old Kalemegdan park, from the other side of Sava river “the entire area of New Belgrade, or the biggest part of it, offers us a gift of one great park.” (Peđa Milosavljević: „Belgrade city by the sea“ 1970)
Terms of beauty, shade, cooling, contribution to global gas balances and reduction in air polutants, moderation in temperature and others, are not enough to fully explain deep ties between people and trees and forests.
Perception of neghbourhood of nature, we explored through fisical contact of a person with a tree from his iminent environment on a example of Park of Friendship, where world leaders planted 195 trees in the period from 1961-90.
