Not So Distant Memory

Exhibit Dates: 
Nov 4, 2011 - Jan 5, 2012
Location: 
Moving Media Hall

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).
