Interactive Contemporary Art Exhibition

Curatorial-theoretical-engaged collective, the Red Min(e)d is organizing the first edition of the Bring In Take Out – Living Archive dedicated to feminist art in (post)Yugoslav space in the framework of the significant conference REDacting TransYugoslav Feminisms: Women’s Heritage Revisited, organized by the Center for Women’s Studies Zagreb that will gather some of the most prominent names of the post-Yugoslav feminism.
The Bring In Take Out – Living Archive (LA) takes and uses artistic, creative and research means and their intersecting strategies to create a contemporary art exhibition, laboratory and public archive for emancipating social and cultural memory of women artists and feminist art in the post/Yugoslav space.
With the bring-in-take-out principle, the LA aims at creating an interactive platform of collaborative working and sharing of information, as well as documentation and presentation in the public space, in which a politics of remembering, production and translation of knowledge might emerge through the ways in which discourses and ideas generated by art practices are shared and through a continuous re-questioning of the emancipatory potential of such a living archive.
During the four day program of the Zagreb edition of the Bring In Take Out Living Archive we are presenting an interactive exhibition of contemporary art: art works, live video/photo/audio documentation, performance, concert, different live working stations, interviews, artists’ talks and discussions with artists, curators, academics, activists, but also an opportunity for ideas and thoughts exchange, as well as active approach to feminist art today.

REDacting Transyugoslav Feminisms: Women’s Heritage Revisited
conference closing party with
a concert by
Damir Imamović (BA)
with visuals by VJane Adela (BA)
Sevdalinkas by Damir Imamović are an explosive package of meanings: you hear one and
your associations will not be alcohol cry or rose garden with Bosnian coffee and baklava.
They will more likely be bloody reality of inhibition, oppression, censorship and silencing
of sexual and other freedoms. Damir’s sevdalinkas are leading us in the libraries and afterwards
to the streets. The completely new nature of sevdalinka points at its cultural resistance
and social pertinence and proves its significance in the contemporary Balkan.
The in-depth research by Damir shows that sevdalinkas’ patriarchal stereotypes
on gender and social hierarchy are not fixed and that the imposed anxious sentimentality
is rather fake. A whole new world of subversion and irony opens on the
crossroads between critical reading and authentic enjoyment. “Snijeg pade na behar,
na voće, neka ljubi ko god koga hoće /Snow falls on the blooming trees, and
on the fruit, let anyone love, whoever s/he could ”, it is said in one of old sevdalinka
songs: time is not “natural”, fertility cycle is not always respected by nature,
why should a love be conditioned to “natural”, heterosexual territory?
… Damir Imamović is not only a new born singer of sevdalinka songs, with him
sevdalinka itself is re-born. Finally, let’s fall in love! (Svetlana Slapšak)
The concert is a tribute by the musician to the feminists and feminists’ movements of the (trans/post)Yugoslav space.
