Invisible violence @ Mocab Salon, Belgrad


With this multi-disciplinary project - in three different location around Belgrade (and Artium space in Spain) - the theme of violence is an aim to resist undue focus on issues of war, genocide and extreme violence, while enabling these to be a tangible, if unseen backdrop to the project. Works by Kader Attia, Rossella Biscotti, Daniel Garcia Andujar, Vladimir Miladinovic, Jonas Staal and others.

Kader Attia

A multi-disciplinary project co-produced by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade (MoCAB) and ARTIUM Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art 

The Belgrade exhibition includes: Kader Attia (FR), Itziar Barrio (ES/US), Ursula Biemann (CH), Rossella Biscotti (IT/NL) & Kevin van Braak (NL), Sarah Browne (IE), Declan Clarke (IE), István Csákány (EU), Willie Doherty (UK/IE), Harun Farocki (DE), Daniel García Andújar (ES), Marta Jovanović (RS/IT), Dejan Kaludjerović (RS/AT), Vladimir Miladinović (RS), Locky Morris (UK/IE), Christodoulos Panayiotou (CY), Garrett Phelan (IE), Nikola Radić Lucati (RS), María Ruido (ES), Francesc Ruiz (ES), Fernando Sánchez Castillo (ES/NL), Jonas Staal (NL), Milica Tomić (RS) and Katarina Zdjelar (RS/NL) 

The project explores “invisible violence” as it is discernable within quotidian, domestic, work-related, and everyday life; administrative and bureaucratic violence; visual violence in advertising and media; as well as subtle forms of sectarianism and community animosity arising from recent historical circumstances. These are forms of violence that are arguably globally omnipresent. These comparisons of violence shall be explored by bringing together artists’ work that are problematizing territorial, nationalistic, mythological and identity-related topics in a topical fashion, without being bogged down by dualistic, partitioned or oppositional representations. 

The theme of violence as a subject for an exhibition is naturally a sensitive and often provocative one, and sometimes generative of Manichean definitions of “us and them.” Therefore, with this project, it is an aim to resist undue focus on issues of war, genocide and extreme violence, while enabling these to be a tangible, if unseen backdrop to the project. The violence being predominantly explored – that which is depicted or investigated in the invited artists’ work - is forms of violence within language, within representation, as a result of shifting socio-economic conditions, and shifting ideas and policies that may be identified as enacting a “cultural” violence upon geo-political bodies and individuals. This does not mean that these more topical and more pronounced forms of violence (terrorism, war, ethnic cleansing and genocide) are explicitly avoided in this exhibition, but that instead they do not dominate the field of references, which itself aims to cast several beacons on different forms of cultural and contemporary violence simultaneously. Additionally, a variety of obstacles that appeared during the production of this overall project, which ironically may be defined as key examples of invisible violence, will be presented and deciphered alongside the exhibition and its discourses. Originally a three-country project, and now touring between Serbia and Spain without an Irish partner, the processes of this project’s development had unexpectedly and inadvertently uncovered forms of invisible violence. 

This project aims to depict the universalising aspects of forms of invisible violence as they are currently prevalent all over Europe; forms of violence that are, for example, seen as a central threat to the production of egalitarian ideals of European citizenship.

Umetnici: Kader Atia (FR), Iciar Bario (ES/US), Ursula Biman (CH), Rosela Biskoti (IT/NL) & Kevin van Brak (NL), Sara Braun (IE), Ištvan Čakanji (EU), Vili Doerti (UK/IE), Harun Faroki (DE), Garet Filan (IE), Daniel Garsija Anduhar (ES), Marta Jovanović (RS/IT), Dejan Kaludjerović (RS/AT), Deklan Klark (IE), Vladimir Miladinović (RS), Loki Moris (UK/IE), Hristodulos Panajotu (CY), Nikola Radić Lucati (RS), Maria Ruido (ES), Fransesk Ruiz (ES), Fernando Sančez Kastiljo (ES/NL), Jonas Stal (NL), Milica Tomić (RS) i Katarina Zdjelar (RS/NL).

Projekat istražuje oblike ‘nevidljivog’ nasilja prisutnog u svakodnevnim, domaćim situacijama ili onim vezanim za posao; administrativno i birokratsko nasilje; vizuelno nasilje u advertajzingu i medijima, kao i suptilne forme sektaštva i animoziteta u zajednicama iz skorašnjeg istorijskog konteksta. Ti oblici nasilja mogu se posmatrati kao globalno prisutni. Ovakva poređenja nasilja istražuju se kroz sučeljavanje umetničkih radova koji problematizuju teritorijalne, nacionalističke i mitske teme, kao i one vezane za pitanja identiteta, i to na aktuelan način i bez upadanja u zamku dualističkih, razdeljenih ili oprečnih reprezentacija.

Tema nasilja kao predmet izložbe po prirodi stvari je osetljiva i često provokativna, a ponekad i podložna manihejskim definicijama ‘mi i oni’. Zbog toga ovaj projekat nastoji da se odupre nepotrebnom fokusiranju na pitanja rata, genocida ili ekstremnog nasilja, iako ove teme odjekuju u pozadini projekta. „Nasilje” čije se manifestacije preispituju i reflektuju u radovima pozvanih umetnika, je ono koje zadobija formu nasilja u jeziku, reprezentaciji, kao rezultat promenjenih društveno-ekonomskih uslova i novih ideja i politika koje se mogu identifikovati kao izvor „kulturnog” nasilja nad geo-političkim entitetima i pojedincima. To ne znači da se ovi „aktuelniji” i naglašeniji oblici nasilja (terorizam, rat, etničko čišćenje i genocid) eksplicitno izbegavaju, već da oni ne dominiraju poljem referenci na ovoj izložbi koja nastoji da istovremeno reflektuje različite forme kulturnog i društvenog nasilja. Sem toga, i raznovrsne prepreke koje su se pojavile tokom realizovanja čitavog projekta (koje se, ironično, mogu definisati kao ključni primeri nevidljivog nasilja) predočavaju se i dešifruju tokom sáme izložbe i unutar diskursa koji je prate. Naime, prvobitno zamišljen kao saradnja partnera iz tri zemlje, a sada izložba koja se realizuje u Srbiji i Španiji, bez irskog partnera, ovaj projekat je u toku razrade i sâm naišao na neočekivane i neželjene oblike ‘nevidljivog nasilja’.

Projekat ima za cilj da ispita univerzalizujuće aspekte novih oblika nevidljivog nasilja koji su trenutno preovlađujući u celoj Evropi; onih oblika nasilja koji se, na primer, prepoznaju kao ključna pretnja proizvođenju egalitarnih ideala evropskog građanstva.
