This hour-long presentation features contemporary video works centering around the history of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1943-1992). Made by artists from ex-Yugoslav republics and provinces, the works contain a multitude of voices and perspectives: from the performative and more politically engaged to the lyrical and humorous. The focus is not on developing an over-arching theme or conclusion but experiencing art from a particular region that is often neglected by the West.
Participating artists: Leban-Kleindienst (Slovenia), Borjana Mrdja (Bosnia & Hercegovina),Renata Poljak (Croatia), Marija Djordjević (Serbia), Alban Muja (Kosovo), Danilo Prnjat (Montenegro), Mladen Miljanovic (Bosnia & Herzegovina), Boris Glamočanin & Sandra Dukić (Bosnia & Herzegovina) and Zoran Poposki (Macedonia).
Curator of the Moving Media video Not So Distant Memory Boshko Boskovic will speak about video works centering around the history of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1943-1992).
