This paper examines the failures of the care infrastructure in Serbia during the pandemic and the resulting intensification of temporary networks of care. We look at housing as a key care infrastructure in the pandemic and d...

Ninety-two participants assessed how familiar the content of the 40 photographs were to them....

Savremeni autori produbljuju uvide o kreativnom procesu ispitujući homospacijalno mišljenje zasnovano na ukrštanju udaljenih asocijacija koje su suprotstavljene u razvoju novih ideja. Upitno je da li se ukrštanje zasniva isključivo na pretpostavkama semiotičke raznorodnosti, ili pak emocije imaju izvesnu ulogu u povezivanju različitih asocijacija....
Conference Paper
Earlier findings indicate that creativity is negatively correlated to the need for closure, and that the patterns of correlation of particular dimensions with creativity can be sensitive to gender differences. The dimensions of the need for closure are desire for predictability, preference for order and structure, decisiveness, close-mindedness and...

This paper examines the contemporary interpretations of creativity and the instrumentalisation of the concept itself, both in neoliberal discourse and in public policies that have become the driver of ever deeper inequalities in society. A review of research of divergent production from the second half of the 20th century, as the foundation of all...
Conference Paper
The results of researches show that creativity may vary depending on the need for closure, although it remains questionable in which way and how the degree of individual creativity correlates with different dimensions of need for closure: desire for predictability, preference for order and structure, decisiveness, close-mindedness and discomfort wi...

This chapter proposes a new method for measuring product creativity with verification of its metric characteristics. The approach entails the construction of a creativity coefficient and a uniqueness coefficient, which are based on the assessment of the originality of the answers provided by respondents.

Tokom zime 2019. u Šabačkom pozorištu izvedeno je akciono istraživanje sa umetnicima koji su bili uključeni u pripremu jedne repertoarske predstave, sa ciljem da se ispita njihov odnos prema socioekonomskim razlikama, kao i prema potencijalno zajedničkoj svojini. Pored tabuizacije govora o novcu i naturalizacije robne proizvodnje, rezultati otkriva...
Conference Paper
The results of previous studies indicate that the interaction of valence, arousal and cognitive evaluation is crucial for aesthetic preference, but also point out to the need for a closer examination of the nature of this interaction. The aim of this paper is to examine the degree and type of correlations between the dimensions of emotional experie...

U radu su testirane validnost i pouzdanost novog načina merenja kreativnosti produkta, putem konstruisanja koeficijenata izuzetnosti i kreativnosti. Proverena je preciznost merenja, kao i opravdanost primene koeficijenata u proceni likovnih produkata, uz poređenje sa rezultatima izvedenim iz konsenzualne tehnike procene (CAT). Postupak konstrukcije...
Conference Paper
How do the contemporary directors understand their role in a society? Is there any discrepancy between what do they want to do and what do they have to do as directors? Can they contribute to the changes in working conditions in theater? How much are they ready to take the responsibility for building the new forms of collectivity? The political asp...
Conference Paper
Previous studies show that the directors' functions are expanding in proportion to increasing social inequalities, and utilitarian requirements for the artists regarding the results of contemporary performing practices. Political aspect of directors’ position allows not only to explore, conceptualize or perform a particular social issue in an isola...

Psychodynamic assumptions that unpleasant and novel content can stimulate creativity has been partially confirmed by empirical research.

Conference Paper
According to the psychodynamic interpretation, the origin of creativity should be sought in intrapsychic conflict, and the act of creation can be explained by the sublimation. Contemporary authors deepen the insights about creative process by analyzing the homospatial thinking, in order to explain connecting of remote associative elements which cou...

In the context of “great divides” in which Belgrade’s cultural scene reproduces the existing social relations, what is evident is the vast fragmentation and focus on different, more or less, convincing attempts of individual entities to sustain themselves and consolidate regardless, and perhaps even precisely because, of weakening of others. Such i...

Cilj ovog rada je predložiti nov validan eksperimentalni pristup u istraživanju kreativnosti. Kao dobar primjer eksperimentalnog nacrta predloženo je korištenje fotografija iz IAPS baze, ukrštanih po principu duplih ekspozicija, kao stimulusa koji kod ispitanika treba izazvati kreativan odgovor, na osnovi Rotenbergovih nalaza o efektima homospacija...

Results of previous researches of cognitive processing have showed that an aesthetic decision can be divided in three successive operations: H mode, which is characterized by "‘pregnancy" quality, balance, simplicity and harmony; R mode, which follows the principle of redundancy and is based on multitude of ornaments and details; and the most compl...

Do sada je utvrđeno da je razvoj grupne kreativnosti uslovljen ne samo visokim stepenom novine i simetričnim učešćem članova grupe na ovoj dimenziji, već i balansiranim odnosom novine i povezanosti koji omogućuje integraciju originalnih rešenja u formi koja nastaje. U fokusu ovog istraživanja je kvalitet povezanosti u grupnom kreativnom procesu. Is...

Kako različit stepen spoljne umetničke kontrola u kreativnom procesu umetnika deluje na estetski doživljaj publike prilikom posmatranja nove umetničke forme? Dosadašnja istraživanja u domenu izvođačkih umetnosti pokazuju da kreativna situacija pod rigidnim restrikcijama otkriva svoje semantičke granice srazmerno stepenu umetničke kontrole (Ristić,...

Conference Paper
U dosadašanjim istraživanjima faktor publike je često izjednačavan sa faktorom očekivane evaluacije koji negativno utiče na kreativnost ispitanika jer povećava stepen anksioznosti i narušava intrinzičku motivaciju (Amabile, 1996). Međutim, sa umetnicima je situacija nešto drugačija, pokazuju rezultati kvalitativne studije: umetnik je uvek usmeren n...
