Leila Topić

Leila Topić works as a curator in Zagreb's Museum of Contemporary Art (MSU), in charge of three collections: film and video, photography and media art. "I perceive my curatorial practice primarily as a process of research and exploration within the wider context of socially engaged cultural production and reflections of social reality. I am especially interested in exploring recent, emancipatory artistic practices (criticism of art systems and the artistic position on the labour market, feminist research, relationship between popular culture and high-brow art thus media/ sound art). Within my practice, I try to comprehend and articulate the new logic / optics of contemporary artistic production whose roots spread freely, all the while either destroying or rediscovering history and memory ''arranged'' in a modernistic manner focusing on the complex East-West/Centre-Periphery relations within the international art system.  Throughout the last two decades, we have stood witness to new models of representation in contemporary art, which have caused disquiet, deviations and jolts. The protective net of the classical Western discipline of art history finally gave way under the load of ''slanted'' views or ''lateral'' approaches (Duchamp himself once concluded that a clock, when viewed from the side, cannot tell the time) and caused the widening of lacunes.The shift in the usual point of view which I advocate changes the viewed idea/term / model itself and leads to a slide, shift and movement of sense and meaning. The acknowledgement and articulation of multiple side–views allows the infiltration of the intermedial, intertextual, multilingual, narrative, referential, fictional, borderline, allegoric or ludic – while the fullness of differences and the simultaneity of opposites are the expected result of my curatorial practice. At the same time, i am trying to raise issues on identity - having in mind specific geopolitical context that I'm working in, by confronting it with the emerging global paradigms."

Marta Jovanovic

“Jovanovic is truly an artist of the twenty-first century. She can no longer call one country home, after living in Europe, the Middle East and North America. Her practice moves effortlessly between performance, sculpture, video and installation. She is interested in the legacy of feminism, but she also has deep admiration for her male forbears. Are these contradictory stances? They should not be. For identity today is a shifting and transforming process, rather than a fixed state. We have learned from the achievements as well as the mistakes of earlier feminist thought—prescribing what is a liberated feminism from what is not is a futile process. What is more enlightening is to understand that the post-feminist condition allows for a personal quantification of identity, one that is not forced or assigned. This is what our feminist predecessors fought for so bitterly—for our generation to have freedom to make our own choices about our bodies, our art, our lives.” Dr. Kathy Battista – Marta Jovanovic: Performing the Self (2013).

Claudio Zamengo - Imagoars

Imagoars cultural association was born in 2009 thanks to a group of artists and art enthusiasts promoting events into the sphere of Art with the purpose of showing and promoting high-quality artistic expressions, from painting to sculpture, from installations to performances. Its activity is aimed at enlarging the knowledge of Art and spreading it through its different languages. Art is not seen as the pure reproduction of the physical world nor as the devastation of our shared satisfying aesthetic equilibrium. Instead, by proposing a new approach towards it, Imagoars conceives it as a contribution for the growth of human sensitivity in order to create a better quality of life inside a shared common ground, namely a “common-city”, more opened and tolerating towards diversity.
