Abstract

The term nesuđena avangarda (“undestined avant-garde”) was coined by Milorad Belančić to describe Vladan Radovanović’s unique artistic destiny. Although Radovanović was the only truly avant-garde Serbian composer in the post-World War II Yugoslavia, his output was overlooked and sidelined. In this article I discuss the circumstances that rendered Radovanović’s avant-garde unrecognised, irrelevant and invisible for many decades.
