Sergej Vutuc, born in Doboj (BiH) in 1979 was raised in Zagreb (HR) and currently lives and works in Heilbronn (DE).
By mid of the 1990s he engages himself deep in the punk and skateboard scene, playing guitar in his band “FMTS” and releasing and distributing music on his label “Get Off Records”. Vutuc considers these early experiences as the main input and root for his later works.
By 2000 he moves to Heilbronn, a small industrial town in Southern Germany, where he opens up the “Basementizid” - an off-space project. Throughout 6 years he invites more than 50 different artists to exhibit their work under his roof. The Basementizid also functions as a platform for Vutuc’s own work, publishing countless zines and travelling and presenting numerous solo and group exhibitions under the same name at destinations all over the world.
In the back of the gallery he runs a small store/library giving his visitors access to books, zines, works from the exhibited artists and also a selection of skateboard products from the underground brands that he works with.
