BPM2020/1: Maradona

June 3, 12:00
Sava promenada
Karađorđeva, Belgrade

We want to take a journey through the life of this football genius, Diego Armando Maradona. This exhibition will present an exclusive selection of photographs, both from the photographic archive of the Argentine News Agency Télam and of the Serbian MN Press Agency, plus will also include work by photographers Dragana Udovičić and Aleksandar Dimitrijević.

Maradona had three great loves: family, football, and his homeland, both Argentina and Latin America. Maradona also had a little bit of love for Serbia after his two famous visits, the first on October 20th, 1982, when he scored one of his most famous goals in the Little Maracaná in front of more than 95,000 spectators who gave him a standing ovation and the second, in 2005, when he visited for the filming of the fantastic documentary Maradona by Kusturica.

The material is infinite: we tried to summarise his life through photos that are already iconic because more than documenting just a moment they represent the history and feelings of the people.

If I die, I want to be born again and I want to be a footballer.
Maradona 1982

With the support of the Embassy of Argentina in Serbia, Télam Agencia Nacional de Noticias, MN Press, and Belgrade Water Front.

The exhibition will finish on 18.6.2021
