Seminar Art for Collective Use - Andrea Baotić
A series of public lectures within the Seminar Art for Collective Use starts on Monday, 27 October and Tuesday, 28 October 2014 at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana. It is being prepared in collaboration between the Department of Art History of the University of Ljubljana and the Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory.
The Seminar will be devoted to art and architecture produced for collective use, reception, experience or ceremony, usually installed in the public space. Such art is usually also characterized by specific “collective authorship”, where in addition to the artist, its clients or initiators are also heavily involved in its production. They may be politicians or citizens that are erecting a monument or a symbolically very telling building, or this may be a curator preparing an exhibition following his or her own concept.
The Seminar will lay a focus on a comparative analysis of two prominent but at first glance quite different branches of modern and contemporary art in Yugoslavia and its successor states: namely, performance art and the monumental public memorials relating to World War II.
But rather than going directly into that subject matter, the Seminar starts a comparative treatment of "art for collective use" at the turn of the 20th century.
