Art Circus is art group founded 1995. in Novi Sad. Its members are artists Milos Vujanovic, Dragan Matic and Zeljko Piskoric.
This art group is working at research of limits of art (interaction of art and science, art and society, art and nature)
The work of Art Circus group is the reaction to what a small circle (read triangle) of men experienced in their environment, discussing and living reality, and it is expressed in manners of explicitness. Uncompromised sincerity is the basic premisse of this work. Iracionality is the first element. Ephemerity is second. Naivity is third.
So far the group has performed solely and took participation in work of other groups and artists.
