HE/Without an Act

Author of the exhibition: Vesna Milić, senior curator

The exhibition HE/Without an Act is another project realised drawing on the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art (Belgrade) and is concerned with the social history in the space and time of the former Yugoslavia and its aftermath, and has an educational purpose in terms of promoting the Museum’s collections and exhibitions as environmental resources in the process of learning. The selection of 38 artworks created in different media (painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photo, and film), in the time span between 1947 and 2005, is also supposed to emphasise the equality of various visual media.

In the second half of the 1900s, political equality invested the women with citizenship rights as well as a public and political role. Although it did not underwent some significant changes in juridical sense, man’s position nonetheless shifted in such a way that favoured woman’s emancipation. The emergence of women in the public sphere had an impact, among other things, onto the changes in private life and customary law, and thus the visual representations of today’s man can also be encountered in private spaces. However, the man, as a theme in the art of the second half of the 1900s in former Yugoslavia, operates for the most part as a model serving a purpose of visual exploration of different practices in art. The emancipation of women, therefore, has not in the least jeopardised male dominance.
