Grayson Perry's exhibition can be interpreted as the elitism of vulgarity and the vulgarity of elitism.

Guided tour by Aida Begić will be focused on the unified needs of a modern man sculpted by corporative capitalistic world, the questions of tribal emotions through Perry's work, and comparisons with the domestic affairs. In this guided tour she will also discuss the demystification of the world and art, about the elitism of vulgarity and the vulgarity of elitism.

These themes will be depicted through the Tim Rakewell's life analysis, a fictional character who's journey through the social classes is presented in Grayson Perry's works, with the overview of dramatic situations artist has set. 

The guided tour will be simultaneously translated to English, so all of the non-Bosnian speakers are more than welcome to join the tour.
