External activity | Hristina Ivanoska's Document Missing: Performance no. 4 (The Interrogation)| PhD in Practice – DG 12 – Schillerplatz 3 – Academy of Fine Art Vienna | November 2nd, 2016 at 6pm
This is the forth in the series of performances that Hristina Ivanoska is conceptualizing, writing and executing as part of her PhD artistic research titled “Document Missing: The intricate sense of truth in oral histories”.
Her research interest and artistic practice are entangled around the issues of suppression, control and construction of collective memory in regard to women’ resistance strategies and politics. As the only protagonist in her performances Hristina Ivanoska becomes a flexible and porous entity, a medium through which different identities can be brought back to life. Through her texts and actions she creates situations that ‘were and were not’ and are based on documents and oral interpretations that are fluctuating through time and space.

“What does it mean to become involved? Against the backdrop of the histories and theories of urban interventions, temporary experimental architectures, socially engaged art practices, and critical spatial practices, I introduce here the idea of involvement. Urban curating is necessarily involved. Involvement means both sharing and being entangled. What are the implications and the complications of such sharing and such entanglements, in short such involvement? Urban curating is involved in the material, social, cultural, political, and economic urban conditions. Urban curating is part of urban transformation dynamics. Therefore, urban curating is implicated in and complicated by the real world conditions of globalized neoliberalism, postcoloniality, international migration, accelerating uneven development, and urban crises. Involved practice therefore requires critical research, materialist analysis, and transversal collaboration. Involved practice relies on many different situated urban knowledge, in plural. This lecture is based on examples from my own curatorial practice such as Mapping the Everyday.Neighbourhood Claims for the Future and Hands-On Urbanism. The Right to Green.”

Presentation by Beti Žerovc: “When Attitudes Become the Norm: the contemporary curator and institutional art” | The 5th International Symposium Curating Exchange | The Institutional as Public | organized by press to exit project space | 22 - 23 September, 2016, GEM Club, Skopje, 19.00 - 21.00 h.
The book “When Attitudes Become the Norm” (published by Archive Books and Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory, 2016) is a collection of essays and interviews by art historian and theorist Beti Žerovc on the topic of curatorship in contemporary art. Žerovc examines curatorship in its broader social, political and economic contexts, as well as in relation to the profound changes that have taken place in the art field over the last century. She analyses the curator as a figure who appears, evolves, and participates in the institutionalisation of contemporary art and argues that with the curator institutional art – art designed to fit the art institution’s space and needs – achieves its fullest expression.
