The exhibition investigates how art and
architecture can serve as power strategies of every political order. The exhibition is composed of a
performative installation and a new film work, which the artist shot in the former Palace of the Federation in
The artist’s new project for the Museum of
Contemporary Art Belgrade presents the third chapter of the artist’s series Spielraum (initiated at Ludwig Museum
Budapest and MGLC Ljubljana earlier this year) which questions the potential of
instrumentalization of visual language, rhetoric and architecture in the
construction of the State as spectacle throughout recent history.
Cibic’s new film features an all-female cast
and frames its four characters: a Nation Builder, a Pragmatist, a
Conservationist and an Artist/Architect. The film’s dialogue is composed from
quotes drawn from various political speeches, debates and proclamations on
iconoclasm of architecture, art and monuments; the language that endorsed demolition
and redesign, which was to aid the creation of new displays for ensuing nation-states
or ideological positions throughout the 20th and 21st
building represented the physical embodiment
of new ideas in post 2WW Yugoslavia. What was constructed as the stage for new world politics presenting a middle course for states in the
developing world between the Western and Eastern Blocs in the Cold War, today exists as an empty theatre box: void of its
actors. It is the stage that becomes the actor itself, it is the stage that
Jasmina Cibic resurrects as the focal point of ideological consideration in her
exhibition Tear Down and Rebuild. Movie trailer https://vimeo.com/137537719
During the exhibition, a performance will
take place, where a group of artists will be gilding this series of positive
affirmations on composite
landscape: a space covered in its entirety with representations of a fictitious
landscape that the artist has composed from numerous photographs drawn from the
archives of Josip Broz Tito’s personal photographers. These present picturesque
and sublime landscapes as captured by the artists (photographers) in the
servitude of the state, setting the scene for the various protocol events.
