Product Description

"[O]ne should learn the art of recognizing, from an engaged subjective position, elements which are gere, in our space, but whose time is the emancipated future, ..." (1)
With texts by Sandro Droschl, Christian Egger and Marina Gržinić, Antonia Majača and Suzana Milevska as well as many exhibition and work views.

It was not to approach this important existing work with a retrospective gaze, but rather to focus on this pertinent question that has long remained unanswered, despite being posed to the point of exhaustion.
