Transart Faculty and Alumni Victoria Hindley (USA) und Zoran Poposki (Macedonia) present:
Artistic Praxis as the Open Pursuit of Questions (in Place of Conclusions)
April 12, 5 pm at: HFF “Konrad Wolf”, Large Cinema, Marlene-Dietrich-Allee 11, 14482 Potsdam
Victoria Hindley is an American artist based in Vienna; Zoran Poposki is a Macedonian artist based in Hong Kong. Though they are culturally and geographically worlds apart, these two artists and colleagues share a passion for unraveling conclusions to get at thought-provoking questions. Their work demonstrates an affinity for critical investigations of sociopolitical constructs such as monuments, books, art, culture, knowledge, institutions and the unwieldy systems of power inherent within. With humor, seriousness, a love of irony and genuine ardor, their individual works investigate such issues as nationalism, liminality, identity, foreign-ness, civil disobedience, gender, and public space. Victoria works primarily with photography, language, installation and the book form; Zoran with performance, video, and installation. With no illusions of defining concrete answers, Victoria and Zoran take much pleasure in pursuing questions.
Developed specifically for HFF, their talk, “Artistic Praxis as the Open Pursuit of Questions (in Place of Conclusions)” will present an exploration of the evolving concept of artistic research intertwined with summaries of recent individual art projects such as Sidewalk Interstice, Portrait of the Artist as a Cultural Worker, SHE IS not in need of Labels, and Abstract Politics.
