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.

Our project is a  multiplatform awareness raising programme with a heavy emphasis on performance art in urban surroundings.

Through this project we hope to:

  1. Combat xenophobia (fear of strangers)
  2. Contribute to the decentralisation of culture and spread cultural events outside of major institutions via civil organisation.
  3. Increase the presence of performance arts in urban environments.

With the imminent entrance of Croatia in to the EU the need for a project that raises awareness of European values is greater than ever.The project puts a heavy emphasis on bringing european values to its’ future citizens on a more intimate and local level. More often than not it’s the localities that are neglected since most programmes deem it only necessary to target major cities.

The project will immidiately pull in by-standers and will peak their curiosity which will lead them to ask questions about the performances and in turn will be informed about the project and it’s theme. By catching just a glimpse of another culture they can draw their own conclusions as to the differences and similiarities they may share with other nations. It will promote open mindedness and a will to accept foreigners in to their society. Web logs, social networking and traditional forms of media will ensure that the program will not go unnoticed. With the all the performers, intelectuals, experts and the general public involved the project has huge potential to reach a massive audience.

A performance as dance is universal. Every culture has one. This project takes advantage of this and uses the fact to „hook“ by standers. From then they ask themselves the questions needed to come to the realisation that multiculturality and understanding is indeed the road that needs to be taken. This unique combination of performances in urban surroundings combined with online conferences, discussions and multimedia campaign (brochures, social networking) will ensure that the project will reach it’s full potential.

The members of ARTHEA are scientists, professors, artists, students and agile creative citizens. The association is registered as a competente civil organisation for the Cultural areas of Art, Media and Internet, thus it promotes Media culture and raises awareness on the Multicultural integration.

A Vacation From History is a magical journey unfolding on the border between dream and reality in which the audience – deprived of the usual theatrical ritual and spectator’s distance – takes part with their entire being.The performance Vacation from History by Shadow Casters will be presented to national and international attendants and collaborators of the IETM (International network for contemporary performing arts, Zagreb, October25-28) plenary session on October 26th at 7pm and on October 27th at 11am.

A Vacation from History is also a multimedia theatre performance in which the Shadow Casters re-establish a new synergy with the audience each time it is performed, making each performance unique in content. It  is a meta(physical) comment on Kafka’s work: a travel to the edge of collective and individual consciousness, through the realms of dream and death as the only safe refuges from history. Vacation from History, has been presented by international theater festivals in Croatia and abroad: Zagreb, Pula, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Subotica, Maribor and Cluj and was awarded: Special Jury Prize BITEF 2009, the 2008 “Avaz dragon” Award at the 48th MESS Festival, 2010 “Cloud” Main Award of the 16th Pula International Festival PUF.

Shadow Casters is a non-profit international artistic and production platform for interdisciplinary collaboration, creativity and reflection on inter-media art. Working with public urban space through various art interventions and projects is one of the main areas on which their work is focussed.

As the Culturenet informs “Sanja Iveković’s solo exhibition Waiting for the Revolution is on view from June 2 to September 16 at Mudam in Luxemburg. Curators are Christophe Gallois and Enrico Lunghi.

Sanja Iveković, a central figure on the Croatian art scene, has developed an engaged artistic practice since the early 1970s, animated by questions of genre, media, identity, and the public and private spheres. Her exhibition at Mudam – a decade after her unprecedentedly controversial public space project Lady Rosa of Luxembourg, which addressed the often -overlooked role of women in wartime – will present a large panorama of her works realised from 1975 to the present.”

A three day International symposium “Philosophy of Media” at the Croatian city Opatija successfuly finished. From 19th to 21st the participants discussed and elaborated this year topic “Art and Media”. At the opening a German professor at Rotterdam School of Management Frank Hartmann spoke on his experiences and a great number of regional participants contributed to the important subject of the symposium. The President of Association “Culture, Media and Education – ARTHEA” Ph.D Vesna Srnic introduced the new concept on Multitasking and the ARTHEA’s portal  Media-Via brings the summary of this scientific paper.

Multitasking in multimedia and multimedia art, especially in the form of integrative activities or performances, presents an artistic actualisation via simultaneous processing by intensifying the experience as a process of affective individualization. As opposed to computer multitasking where a larger number of activities weaken concentration, i.e. attention is dispersed and memory is weakened, the orchestrated affective experience in Multimedia Art is anchored in an existential support by artistic attention which results in an organic memory and authenticity. With this thesis we hope to disallow the findings of other scholars (such as Christine Rosen, Ph.D., in her work „The Myth of Multitasking“, Sead Alić, Ph.D., in ‘’McLuhan, Announcement of Media Philosophy’’ and others) who claim multitasking results in the loss of wisdom.

“Theatre Trafik” form Rijeka and “The Necessary Stage” from Singapore will premiere their joint project – the performance ‘Crossings’ at 16 August in Theatre Esplanade – The Studio Season in Singapore, with additional perfromances on 17, 18 and 19 August. The Croatian premiere is planned for 19 August at the National Theatre Ivan Zajca in Rijeka. Their work is related to questions of identity of the individual lost on the margins of time and space.

Based on Asian myths, Crossings take us on a journey of the transformation of the self – how one deals with the seduction of being imprisoned and how freedom opens us to meaningless pain. Crossings is a multidisciplinary collaboration between artists from Singapore and Croatia investigating the coexistence, understanding and mixing of different cultures.

The Necessary Stage
Formed in 1987 by our current Artistic Director Alvin Tan, The Necessary Stage (TNS) is a non-profit theatre company with charity status. Our mission is to create challenging, indigenous and innovative theatre that touches the heart and mind. TNS is a recipient of the National Arts Council’s 2 Year Major Grant, and is also the organiser and curator of the annual M1 Singapore Fringe Festival.

TRAFIK (Transitive-Fiction Theatre)
The work of this collective of authors and performers is, by many accounts, very unique within the context of Croatian independent theatre and dates its beginnings back to 1998 and their site-specific performance, The Walker. This work determined their thematic objectives as well as artistically expression on questions of identity of the individual lost on the margins of time and space.

Santarcangelo isn’t a showcase but a place of artistic experience; in opening international dialogues with collectives of fifty years’ standing and with artists at their debut; in imagining projects that are out of format with respect to the theatre, which overflow with simplicity and brazenness into art, writing, drawing and cinema; in getting kids, old folk, citizens and foreigners involved in creations by artists who are able to set up a short-circuit between stage and life, far from any TV form, from any narcissism, to remind us how art is a place for distillation of the real, a space where it is possible to practise a glance of inexperience and courage, to make oneself vulnerable to what one does not know and is not understood, what does not belong to us and to which we perhaps belong.

Sad sam /almost 6/ is a work about childhood and its ending; about the relationship with one’s own interior world and with the others outside; about the power of the imaginary and a language capable of creating things by naming them; about the rip that breaks the perfect circle and opens us up, through the wound, to others and to the real. The show is one chapter of a wider ranging project in which under the title Sad Sam (a play on words, since in Croatian it means “now I am”) Ferlin composes a series of small creations, all centred on his stage presence characterised by great expressive power and surprising delicacy.

Matija Ferlin (b. Pola, 1982) graduated at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam and lived in Berlin where he collaborated with, among others, Sasha Waltz. He then returned to Pola and began research involving the rearrangement of various ideas of performance in relation to other languages such as film shorts and exhibitions.(http://santarcangelofestival.com)

In German Medienmuseum ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art in Karlsruhe you can visit on March 8th, 2012 an exhibition “Moments. A History of Performance in 10 Acts” as an international live exhibition on the history of art performance in dance and fine art. As an exhibition ‘in progress’, the project shows and develops new formats of museal presentation of live acts. The exhibition begins in an empty exhibition space. During the eight week duration of the exhibition project a scenic act of around ten central stages of dance and performance history unfolded − as witnessed by a group of students invited to accompany and observe for the entire period − before a public. One of the key focal points is the performances and works by women who have consciously been thematizing, transgressing and critiquing the genre boundaries between dance, performance, and visual media since the 1960s. Here, they likewise reflect on the implicit male constructions of the gaze and the gestural logic of their colleagues.

Among others, the artists represented in the exhibition will be Marina Abramović, Graciela Carnevale, Simone Forti, Anna Halprin, Reinhild Hoffmann, Channa Horwitz, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sanja Iveković, Adrian Piper and Yvonne Rainer. The exhibition is composed of four phases, in each of which other actors occupy the exhibition space:

1. Act − Stage and Display (March 8−March 17, 2012)

2. Re-Act − Interpretative Acquisition in the Art Laboratory (March 18−March 30, 2012)

3. Post-Production − Film Editing (March 31−April 14, 2012)

4. Remembering the Act − Performative Mediation of the Exhibition Process by Artistic Witnesses (April 15−April 29, 2012)

Manchester International Festival and Teatro Real Madrid present on 30th June-17th July the world premiere of a startling new piece for the stage: The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, a biography of the godmother of performance art, re-imagined by visionary director Robert Wilson.

“What an incredible evening, truly the finest theatre I have ever seen. Abramović was incredible, moving through the play, of which she is the central character in the most profound way, with a light touch, never overpowering her cast. Willem Defoe cut an imposing but insightful figure throughout, playing a role as narrator, but so much more, becoming a representation of a massively significant part of Abramović herself. I cannot speak highly enough of his performance; I was more than impressed, frankly stunned at his abilities as an actor, playing the dark side of a human soul, but again more, becoming the gatekeeper of Abramović’s mind, whilst maintaining a merciless and cutting humour that displayed an absence of pretension in both Abramović and himself. His representation of the internal torture present within a profound, intelligent mind was one which rose above an occasion already described quite rightly, as a significant moment in the history of Mancunian theatrical culture.” (Comment by Daniel James Gillard)

MARK TRIBE: ‘THE DYSTOPIA FILES’ (Zagreb, June 9th – July 9th 2011),  ‘Performance, mediation and public sphere’, workshop and public lecture

„The Dystopia Files“ (A dystopia – from Ancient Greek: δυσ-, “bad, ill”, and Ancient Greek: τόπος, “place, landscape” is the idea of a society in a repressive and controlled state), at g-mk is the newest iteration of Mark Tribe’s ongoing project, which recontextualizes the history of demonstrations in the US. The artist had gathered an archive of protest footage, which serves as a base for creating site specific video installations in gallery and museum spaces. The work tackles on a set of questions about power relations, spectatorship, image manipulation, participation, interaction and political engagement. The relationship between these issues and recent curatorial practices will be discussed during the workshop held by Mark Tribe. In a talk following the workshop, Mark will present his multimedia artistic practices, including his previous acknowledged projects such as Rhizome and Port Huron ( The Port Huron Project is a series of reenactments of protest speeches from the New Left movements of the Vietnam era). The exhibition is curated by Željka Himbele Kožul.
