Politics Within

Center for Contemporary Art Celje, Slovenia

The film and installation Art, Property of Politics (2010) by Jonas Staal will be presented in the exhibition Politics Within:
“When John Berger made the Ways of Seeing series back in 1972, he recognized the political as already inherited within the art field, casting doubt at the common understanding of art history. (..) Based on Berger's understanding of the context: "Everything around the image is parts of its meaning, everything around it confirms and consolidates its meaning," the exhibition presents the different positions artists take in relation to the ideologies of the image, its representational role and the strategies of its deconstruction (subversion).”

Curated by Irena Boric.
Participating artists: Fokus Grupa, IC-98, IRWIN, Borut Peterlin, Nives Sertić, Jonas Staal, Hito Steyerl.
