PhD. Vesna Srnic has just published an original paper on Memory in co-authorship with Vice-Dean of Faculty of Teacher Education in Osijek, department in Slavonski Brod PhD. Emina Berbić-Kolar and student Igor Ilić, in the American journal “Communication, Society and Media” (ISSN 2576-5388 (Print) ISSN 2576-5396 (Online), Vol. 1, No. 2, 2018 http://www.scholink.org/ojs/index.php/csm )

Abstract

In addition to the well-known classification of long-term and short-term memory, we are also interested in distinguishing episodic, semantic and procedural memory in the areas of linguistic narrative and multimedial semantic deconstruction in postmodernism. We compare the liveliness of memorization in literary tradition and literature art with postmodernist divisions and reverberations of traditional memorizations through human multitasking and performative multimedia art, as well as formulate the existence of creative, intuitive and superhuman paradigms.

Since the memory can be physical, psychological or spiritual, according to neurobiologist Dr. J. Bauer (Das Gedächtnis des Körpers, 2004), the greatest importance for memorizing has the social role of collaboration, and consequently the personal transformation and remodelling of genomic architecture, yet the media theorist Mark Hansen thinks technology brings different solutions of framing function (Hansen, 2000). We believe that postmodern deconstruction does not necessarily damage memory, especially in the field of human multitasking that utilizes multimedia performative art by means of anthropologization of technology, thereby enhancing artistic and affective pre&post-linguistic experience while unifying technology and humans through intuitive empathy in society.

Vedran Ruzic jazz quartet played multimedially joined with a huge screened film „Spiritual Market“ on 28th June, 2018 in The Ivana Brlic Mazuranic Concert Hall in Slavonski Brod, Croatia. „Spiritual Market“ combines the original jazz album of Vedran Ružić – inspired by the journeys of Marco Polo with the music accompanying art film, made by John Kardum and Ira Tomić.

Highly coordinated quartet sounded not only as a perfect western jazz, but also as a singular and highly spirited shaman in his endevaor! The sound was extremely and crystally penetrating thanks to the new, expensive equipment of the concert hall. Especially the Vedran’s dubble bass was impressive. The film pretended to be abstract but was illustrating facts occasionally. “Spiritual Market” was awarded with Porin for The Best Jazz Album in 2016.

The jazz album was created in combination with overtones from Istria and the Far East, it follows Polo’s journey from Venice to China. The album unites 5 original pieces of Ružić, a late medieval motet and a traditional Mongolian piece with new arrangements. With Ružić on the double bass, the quartet is completed with his colleagues from the conservatorium in Klagenfurt – Adriano Bernobić on the drums, Pavle Miljenović on the guitar and Mario Biočić joining them with the saxophone on three pieces on the album. In addition to the music and paintings, Ira Tomić and John Kardum joined with photography and an art movie – as a result, the project “Spiritual Market” evolved, inspired by the journeys of Marco Polo to the Far East.

Vedran Ružić is an academic painter (on his last year at the academy of fine arts in Rijeka/Croatia) and a professional double bass jazz-musician. In 2017 he won Croatia’s highest price in music for the best jazz album of the year (Spiritual Market). He has his own atelier in Volosko/Opatija, where he works on his paintings and music. http://vedranruzic.com/en/

The old, sometimes lucid, good looking aristocratic and arrogant actress is still involved in human rights activism.

Vanessa Redgrave (1937) is an English actress of stage, screen and television, as well as a political activist.

She is also known by the activist work as she has started protests against the Vietnam War, and continued with the struggle for Palestine and visiting Sarajevo during the occupation. The Stage magazine listed her in 2010 to ninth place on the list of the greatest actresses of all time. She played more than thirty roles in the West End and Broadway, most notably those in the plays The Year of magical thinking, Long journey into the night and Driving Miss Daisy.

Beside the theater career, she appeared in more than eighty films, six times was nominated for the Oscar, which was awarded to her for Best Supporting Actor in the film Julia (Fred Zinnemann, 1977). The films in which she acted like Isadore (Karel Reisz, 1968) and Blow-Up (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966) have become classics of film history.

Interacting global” and local” in the glocal” is our way of softening the boundaries by encountering “foreignand domestic” as a form of struggle against xenophobia or fear of strangers. On 9th May we presented two simultaneous dancing and meditative performances: passionate Irish dancer Paul O’Grady performed traditional Irish dances, while Chinese meditative dance TaiChi was performed by Chinese professor Wang Qian, a lecturer at the Confucius Institute and the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb.
