 Explanation of the award

The publication Bread in proverbs and sayings of the peoples of the world by Dimitrije Vujadinović presents a kind of anthropological history of bread. Bread is one of the rare forms of culture that unites the prehistoric and modern world, and as such it is certainly a constant on which civilization rests. Therefore, this kind of journalistic significant contribution, behind which there is a great, "wolfish" collecting work, is of essential importance for the understanding of man and his survival in the world.  . more »

Bread in Proverbs and Sayings of the Peoples of the World

NEW BOOK - Author, Dimitrije Vujadinovic


The publication Bread in Proverbs and Sayings of the Peoples of the World contains more than a thousand simple folk tales in a short form. Certainly there are countless more of this selectin. This is just one choice. I believe it is striking enough to show the expressed lived experience using bread not only as food, but also as a symbol and metaphor.

During the selection process, I tried to make sure that most of the proverbs and sayings carry temporal universality and thus be instructive for today's generations as well. But, in order to evoke some forgotten time, I also kept some older proverbs and sayings, which may be more difficult for the modern reader to understand. . more »

MILUTIN DEDIĆ (1935-2021), Heavenly guardian of heritage

Drawing exhibition, Prometheus gallery, Novi Sad, June


The exhibition was organized by Dimitrije Vujadinović. The voluminous travelogues of Milutin Dedić record stories about the world of mills and millers in Serbia, about a life in which the real and the unreal intertwine for centuries. With his sharp pen and lucid notes, he carved forgotten streams and their owners into paper. He is not a mere draftsman of wooden and stone flour houses. Dedić is looking for the metaphysical in the landscape of "mysterious forces" and in the faces of "fairy favorites but also eternal fighters with vampires". . more »
