At the City Art Museum in Ljubljana

Zoran Poposki's work is featured in the exhibition "Curatorial Workshop" by Goranco Gjorgievski, at the City Art Museum Ljubljana, from 23 September to 17 October 2010.
In the exhibition, Poposki is represented with video and photo documentation of the performative tryptich "Portrait of the Artist as a Cultural Worker", co-produced by Goranco Gjorgievski. In this performative tryptich (composed of the performances "Thesis", "Sweet Movie", and "Working Class Hero"), Poposki reflects on his artistic practice focused almost exclusively on public space as a place for representation and discursive action.
"Curatorial Workshop" is a project by Goran Gjorgievski, curator at the National Gallery of Macedonia - Mala Stanica. The project is focused on the complex role of the curator in artistic production and brings together a number of works by artists from the wider region of former Yugoslavia, including Irwin, Zero, Uros Djuric, Zaneta Vangeli, etc.

Cultural Space and Identity in a Post-Socialist Context

Artist and theorist Zoran Poposki will be speaking on critical artist interventions in public space at the international conference on Cultural Space and Identity in a Post-Socialist Context at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, on 8-10 September 2010.
The interdisciplinary conference Cultural Space and Identity in a Post-Socialist Context inquires about the impact of social changes in post-socialist societies since the 1980s on theatre, cinema, contemporary art and new media. In particular, the conference seeks to explore such questions as: How have cultural space, identity and national iconography been reconfigured in post-socialist societies? What common patterns of change, if any, can be identified in post-socialist theatre and/or contemporary art and new media? How is cultural memory being performed in post-socialist societies? What are the implications of globalization and international (global) markets for contemporary art, theatre, etc., in post-socialist societies?

The conference is organized in conjunction with STEP - Project on European Theatre Systems
