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.
The 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.
