Dimitrijević, Braco. A Casual Passer-by in Belgrade, 1971. Performance
One of the first performances from the "Causal Passer-by" cycle (after those in Zagreb) was the one in Belgrade in 1971, in which the poster (portrait) ˝Casual passer-by I met at 2:29 p.m.“ was used. The poster (portrait) was placed on the façade of the Jugoexport building on Belgrade’s central square (today's Kolarčeva 1). It is safe to assume that the reaction of Belgrade's citizens was similar to that of the citizens of Zagreb - confusion and suspicion concerning the identity of the depicted figures.
It was a subversive performance in a public area, otherwise intended for officials, where the artist hung portraits of random passers-by and in that way questioned the established forms of communication in the public space of a socialist state.
