Art organization (review of historical practices through the XX century to the present day), research project kuda.org

Art Organisation analyses the phenomenon of artistic (self)organisation and relations within artistic groups and collectives in the post-Yugoslav region during the last fifty years, and the ways it influenced the profile and quality of their artistic production. Research within the project Art Organisation is aimed at group and collective processes of creation and internal dynamics between artists and other participants in them. The focus is on self-organised initiatives outside the framework of official institutions. Through the phenomena of self-organisation, the project questions the role of civil society organisations as potential progressive places in society through dealing with art.

The introduction to the research of group work, joint authorship, working conditions, was conducted during 2017 through interviewing participants and protagonists of the contemporary art scene from Yugoslavia, and continued during 2018/2019. The research team is composed of members of kuda.org with associates from Belgrade, theoreticians and art historians Milica Pekić and Stevan Vuković and Ana Peraica from Split. During 2019, the interviewed were collectives and groups in the field of contemporary art, theoreticians and art historians, and protagonist artists who realized their practice through group art work.

Art Organisation is part of a wider project Vectors of Collective Imagination where kuda.org cooperates with partners: Multimedia Institute mi2 and Kulturtreger-Books, Zagreb (HR); Glänta Gothenburg  (SE); Kontrapunkt, Skopje (MK) and Berliner Gazette, Berlin (DE).

Art organization: interview with Marko Pogačnik (OHO group), Ljubljana, October 2018.

Art organization: interview with Marko Pogačnik (OHO group), Ljubljana, October 2018.

Biography: 

Marko Pogačnik, artist, founder of the movement and art group OHO, Kranj-Ljubljana, after which the initiator of the transformation of this group into a new artistic initiative Družina v Šempasu (Družina v Šempasu), is today an active research artist in the international network.

The OHO Group, a Slovene art collective active from 1966-1971 in Ljubljana. Members included Marko Pogačnik, Iztok Geister Plamen, Marjana Ciglič, Milenko Matanović, Andraž Šalamun, Tomaž Šalamun, David Nez, Matjaž Hanšek, Naško Križnar, Vojin Kovač Chubby, Aleš Kermavner, Franci Zagoričnik, Marika Pogačnik, Zvona Ciglič, Nuša and Srečo Dragan, a.o.

The members of the OHO group developed various strategies and approaches that they first called “reism,” a type of arte povera, land art and body art, processual and conceptual art. They aspired to “liberate” situations and objects and present them to the public outside of their fixed functions. The term “Oho” refers to the observation of forms (with the eye, “oko”, and ear, “uho”) in their immediate presence, and is also an exclamation of astonishment, said Marko Pogačnik, the group’s leader: “Because when we uncover the essence of a thing, that is when we exclaim ‘oho’.” A specific approach toward objects, a distancing from the weight of meaning, is apparent in Edicija Oho (Oho Edition), where literature and visual art are reduced to objectivity. Artists such as Pogačnik, Geister, Hanžek, Matanović, Dreja and others created their “books” by printing objects, drawings and sentences on single pages placed in small boxes. These books are objects, with their pages being various forms that can be handled, jumbled letters that must be arranged to form a sentence. A book should be heard, looked through. It is an “open work,” one which, demonstrating “reistic” tautology, suggests a game.

Art organization: conversation with members of the Multimedia Institute mi2: Tomislav Medak and Petar Milat, Zagreb

Biography: 

 

Multimedijalni institut (MI2) is a non-profit association working at the intersections of culture, arts, technology and activism. Since its early days it has organized around a multi-facetted community that weaves together interests in diverse cultural and social fields: 1) critically inflected digital arts, film, music and literature; 2) digital commons: free software, free culture and open access; 3) philosophy and theory; 4) cultural networking, advocacy and grass-root organizing; 5) protection of public domain and struggles for spatial justice.

Locally it is mostly identified with the social and cultural center MaMa in Zagreb, where it’s organizing cutting-edge cultural, educational and technology programs, hosting a local hacker community and providing an open venue for other cultural initiatives. But it is also the co-organizer of Human Rights Film Festival, electronic music events, publishing activities and the Croatian localizer of Creative Commons licenses.

MI2 is a catalyst for cultural collaboration and grassroots political activism both locally and throughout the former Yugoslav region. In early 2000s it was instrumental in initiating the Clubture network and a number of other cultural policy initiatives. In the latter part of 2000s it was part of the alliance that initiated the Right to the City Zagreb, which it still supports. It has also helped initiate and support the series of un-conferences “Nothing will happen“, bringigt together hackers from throughout the former Yugoslav countries and beyond.

Interview with Dunja Blažević (ZVONO Group)

Biography: 

Dunja Blažević, art historian , curator, editor of the visual program of the Gallery of the Student Cultural Center (SKC) in Belgrade from 1970 to 1976 and director of the SKC from 1976-1979 and director of the Center for Contemporary Art / SCCA / pro.ba in Sarajevo since 1996 -2010.

 

Group Zvono (Sarajevo, 1982-1992) Its members were Sead Čizmić, Biljana Gavranović, Kemal Hadzić, Sadko Hadžihasanović, Narcis Kantardžić and Aleksandar Sasa-Bukvić, the initiators of the joint work of the group and the driving force of its organization and promotion. As newly graduated students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo, familiar with contemporary art trends, they do not wait to be recognized in the existing system of art. Eager for change, they form a group that will operate outside the institutions and in a way hitherto unknown and unrecognized in our artistic environment. They organize art actions, performances, exhibitions in the most unusual places: bars, streets, shop windows, in nature. This was until then the most radical behavior in modern art in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their group actions (stadium games, parodies and parties) are an expression of generational self-identification, while each of them in his individual work seeks and develops his own plastic form and poetics in a wide range of "New Images" of the eighties. The activity of the Zvono group (especially its extremely activist attitude towards the cultural space in which it operates) represents the most radical 'behavior' on the art scene of Bosnia and Herzegovina at that time.

According to the Zvono art group, the SCCA Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Art established the ZVONO Award for Young Fine Artists in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in 2006.

Biography: 

Branka Stipančić, curator and critic in the field of art and the first director and curator of the Center for Contemporary Art Zagreb (SCCA - Zagreb, 1993-1997) and one of the founders of the SCCA network in Amsterdam.

In the late 1970s (1975-1981), the 'Group of Six Artists' (Boris Demur, Željko Jerman, Vlado Martek, Mladen Stilinović, Sven Stilinović and Fedor Vučemilović) began exhibiting in open air spaces in an attempt to circumvent the traps set by art institutions. The young artists displayed their work on sunbathing boards and on the grass between the bathers on the bank of the river Sava (in Zagreb), they projected slides and films on to buildings, exhibited on city squares, in the streets, in universities in Zagreb, on the sea shore of Moščenička Draga, in Belgrade, Venice and elsewhere. They called their shows “exhibition-actions” because, alongside some finished works, most of the work and actions were created on site and in response to the situation. They acted spontaneously, as a loose association of artists who expressed their ideas in works that often challenged the established ethic and aesthetic order and sought to subvert the society in which they lived.

The Soros Center for Contemporary Art – SCCA Zagreb was founded in 1993 and registered as an independent nonprofit organization, a citizens’ association in 1998 as The Institute for Contemporary Art, as the successor of SCCA Zagreb. The founders of the Institute are a group of art historians, curators, artists, photographers, designers, publishers, university professors and journalists.

At the time of its establishment in 1993 the aims of the SCCA – Zagreb were to upgrade to the existing system of institutions of contemporary art in Croatia, to promote artists, visual arts and other artistic creativity, to initiate the documentation on contemporary artists, and to build a recognizable network of contemporary art production in the area where we were active. At the beginnings, the Institute acted as a logistics centre for helping artists and their promotion, as the organizer of exhibitions, and has participated in the formation of civil society in Croatia.

Art Organisation analyses the phenomenon of artistic (self)organisation and relations within artistic groups and collectives in the post-Yugoslav region during the last fifty years, and the ways it influenced the profile and quality of their artistic production. Research within the project Art Organisation is aimed at group and collective processes of creation and internal dynamics between artists and other participants in them. The focus is on self-organised initiatives outside the framework of official institutions. Through the phenomena of self-organisation, the project questions the role of civil society organisations as potential progressive places in society through dealing with art.

The introduction to the research of group work, joint authorship, working conditions, was conducted during 2017 through interviewing participants and protagonists of the contemporary art scene from Yugoslavia, and continued during 2018/2019. The research team is composed of members of kuda.org with associates from Belgrade, theoreticians and art historians Milica Pekić and Stevan Vuković and Ana Peraica from Split. During 2019, the interviewed were collectives and groups in the field of contemporary art, theoreticians and art historians, and protagonist artists who realized their practice through group art work.

Art Organisation is part of a wider project Vectors of Collective Imagination where kuda.org cooperates with partners: Multimedia Institute mi2 and Kulturtreger-Books, Zagreb (HR); Glänta Gothenburg  (SE); Kontrapunkt, Skopje (MK) and Berliner Gazette, Berlin (DE).

Art organization: interview with FOCUS group: Iva Kovač and Elvis Krstulović, Rijeka, 2019

Biography: 

Fokus grupa, Rijeka / Iva Kovač and Elvis Krstulović

When founded in 2012, we appropriated a generic name for a research method. Fokus Grupa — a construction, became a fictional author that took credit and responsibility for our artwork, fictional author that sees itself as both the manipulator and the manipulated in a broader artistic and social context. We use text, objects and images, act both within and outside the gallery. The outcomes are mainly spatial installations and interventions, which consist of drawings, texts, photographs, videos or (usable) objects. Content-wise, we point to the power relations within the art system, as well as within the broader economic and social context, and we are especially interested in the role of art within those relations. Our work extends over the neighbouring disciplines and borrows and learns from design, architecture, curating and literature. Therefore, Fokus Grupa also works with occasional collaborators, be it with specialists for a specific discipline or for a specific topic.

In 2008 we co-founded a self-organised collective Kružok (group for discussions and production of discursive events), which operated intermittently until 2015. We participated in the work of the Autonomous Cultural Centre Medika in Zagreb, and co-founded a collective artist-run space Delta 5 in Rijeka in 2013. Fokus Grupa is a member of artist-run space SIZ in which it regularly co-organises exhibitions of regional and international artists since 2012.

Fokus group, Rijeka / Iva Kovač i Elvis Krstulović they have been working since 2012, thus giving a new dimension to the cooperation that began in 2009. Both graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb with shortcomings whose conservative environment they compensated with extra-institutional engagement. Before coming to study in Zagreb, they lived in Rijeka, where they returned in 2013, becoming an important building block of the Rijeka independent scene, extremely well connected with the actors of regional culture. Their work is often marked by long-term interdisciplinary artistic processes that thematize nationalism, precariat, power relations on the art scene, and beyond. They were and still are involved in leading and creating programs of organizations such as Medica, SIZ and Delta 5, which gave them a direct insight into the work processes from an organizational and curatorial perspective, and not exclusively artistic.

Art organization: interview with members of the IRWIN group - Miran Mohar and Borut Vogelnik, Ljubljana, October 2018.

Art organization: interview with members of the IRWIN group - Miran Mohar and Borut Vogelnik, Ljubljana, October 2018.

Biography: 

Group IRWIN (NSK) the conversation was realized with two members: Miran Mohar and Borut Vogelnik, artists active in the work of the art group IRWIN, lecturers at the University of Ljubljana and at private universities in Slovenia and the region.

IRWIN is a collective of five painters: Dušan Mandič, Miran Mohar, Andrej Savski, Roman Uranjek, and Borut Vogelnik. The group was founded in 1983 in Ljubljana. Until 1985, the collective also included Marko Kovačič and Bojan Štokelj. Its principal approach is described as emphasized eclecticism, based on the method of retro principle.

At the beginning of the following year (1983) they named the group Rrose Irwin Sélavy, and wrote a programme setting out the principles governing their work: the affirmation of national visual arts based on emphatic eclecticism and on the simultaneous use of diverse, often contradictory styles. They summed up their artistic philosophy in the term retro principle. In contrast to the then-predominant postmodernism, they drew on the tradition of conceptual art.

Shortly after the Back to the USA exhibition, held early in 1984, IRWIN started working on several projects that focussed on various Slovenian art groups or movements that it recognised as crucial reference points for defining its own activity. In addition to artistic relevance, there were two other selection criteria: the contemporaneity and close connectedness between IRWIN and the other groups that co-founded NSK the same year, and the importance of Slovenian impressionists and of the OHO group for the development of Slovenian visual arts and of Slovenian society in general.

One of IRWIN’s most important projects is the series titled Was ist Kunst, which refers to the Laibach group. Evolving over more than thirty years, this series of paintings currently numbers several hundred works mounted in heavy, often black frames; the key theme of the series is exploring the ideological context of art. It started with the appropriation, development and transformation of motifs used by Laibach Kunst, that is, the iconography of socialist realism, Nazi propaganda, religious art, the art of avant-garde movements and archetypal Slovenian works of art. Another guiding principle of IRWIN’s art is the priority of the chosen motif over artistic style, which is described as “the dictate of the motif” over “the dictate of style”. The mode of execution is thus secondary to the motif. The author is also secondary, and the works were all signed collectively, with the painter regarded as the chronicler of his time and culture. With clearly formulated self-imposed limits the artists have ensured their autonomy and established a form of their own, taking a critical stance towards both formalist modernism and postmodernist formulas, towards adopting stylistic and cultural influences from the West, as well as towards an ideological celebration of various values reflected in art in the East.

IRWIN has developed a specific strategy of institutional critique, drawing attention to the exclusion of Eastern European art from the international art system, as well as strongly contributing to the emergence of artistic histories of Yugoslavian and Eastern European art, as evidenced by the Fra-Yu-Kult and NSK Embassy Moscow projects, which it carried out in collaboration with other NSK groups.

An insurgency of sick artists is organising to resist the global crisis of care, from bed and over the phone. In these days of compulsive overwork in the so-called creative economy, we’re all sick artists. Using ancient technologies of peer-to-peer care, a grassroots health monitoring and diagnostic system is emerging, practiced from beds and couches all over the world.

Pobuna bolesnih umetnika je organizovana u otporu spram globalne krize nege, iz kreveta i preko telefona. U ovim danima kompulzivnog prekomernog rada u takozvanoj kreativnoj ekonomiji svi smo bolesni umetnici. Koristeći drevne tehnologije peer-to-peer (jednak jednakom), pomalja se sistem praćenja i dijagnostifikovanja odozdo, koji se praktikuje iz kreveta i kauča širom sveta.
