Artistic individuation as a performative ‘gender indeterminacy’

Creating this year’s state of mind on the Croatian City Square, promoting human rights to diversity, our civic organization “Culture, Media and Education” – ARTHEA presented a new dance performance: two students of contemporary dance from the Academy of Drama Arts in Zagreb – Simun Stankov and Mate Jonjic, as well as a student from the Faculty of Educational Sciences in Osijek,  department in Slavonski Brod Igor Ilic, in long skirts and choreography of Zagreb dancer and musician Nastasja Stefanic performed an improvisation on jazz music by the American artist John Zorn, gaining an inspiration from the world famous Israeli Dance group Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, with whom the author of the project PhD. Vesna Srnic has arranged co-operation. (culturenet.hr ; http://glocal-art.ning.com/https://www.facebook.com/groups/glocalart ; )  Brochure in Croatian language –PUBLIKACIJA_2017 

Part of the art performance is also a multimedia platform realized by the students of the Academy of Arts in Osijek, under the mentorship of prof.art. Vladimir Frelih, as well as a student of the Faculty of Educational Sciences in Osijek, department in Slavonski Brod Valentina Jackiv and Rian Skrinjaric, the student of Primary School “Ivan Goran Kovacic”, educated by the teacher Tomislav Lacic.

As the author of the project stated in her thesis of doctoral dissertation that the artistic individuation is the way of solving the gender problematic and that only with the aesthetic changes of reality we re-create and acquire a new personality without gender discrimination or categorization, neither androgynous nor transgender. Of course, we do not eliminate the potentials of individuals and communities that explore all the transitional boundaries of their gender.

Short video of the performance:

The particular importance of the project is seen in the global decentralization of culture and the penetration of a progressive performative approach to urban space in which the overwhelming conservatism of culture and rigid xenophobia prevail, ie the frustration by the contemporary art practices as a different worldview of abstract imagination and, above all, the presence of strangers. We incorporate this civic educational project in primary, secondary and tertiary curricula.

Scientific reviews on artistic performances will be written by: Professor PhD. Lino Veljak (Head of the Department of Ontology, Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb), Mediologist Professor dr Divna Vuksanovic (Faculty of Dramatic Arts, Belgrade, President of the Association of Citizens for Art, Culture, Media and Social Issues “Young Peas”), dr Jugoslav Gojkovic (Department of Psychiatry, Slavonski Brod), and the media aesthetician PhD. Vesna Srnic, associate professor at the Faculty of Educational Sciences in Osijek, a department in Slavonski Brod.

This year civic organization “Culture, Media and Education” – ARTHEA was financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, the City of Slavonski Brod, the Tourist Board of Slavonski Brod and Brodsko-Posavska County.

From the review:

Establishing a nGlocal_Multimedia_Art_contentsew virtual reality mediated by the multimedia technology undoubtedly deserves the highest level of attention to critical scholarship, and as part of the disclosure of this new reality of eternal question about the meaning and significance of artistic creation, takes on a new dimension, which imperatively requires a systematic critical approach. The author’s intention is aimed at contributing such an approach. (Ph. D. Lino Veljak)
