JASMINA CIBIC IN CONVERSATION WITH KIRSTY LANG
SONNTAG, 1.10. 2023 / 15h30,
AKADEMIE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE WIEN, SITZUNGSSAAL
JASMINA CIBIC is a Slovenian installation and film artist who lives and works in London and has exhibited all over the world. Her work explores the construction of national cultures, their underlying ideologies and political goals, and how they use the arts, particularly architecture. Cibic uses an artist’s lens to examine the theatricality and performance behind nationhood and international unity.
One of her most recent works, The Gallery of Non-Aligned is a series of photographic portraits from The Art Gallery of the Non-Aligned Movement in Montenegro, the only official collection of artworks donated by heads of state, cultural workers, and artists within the movement.
In conversation with the BBC’s KIRSTY LANG, Jasmina will explore the fraught relationship between politics and art in the modern world.
