CrossSections Project

International project |  CrossSections  | Curated by: Basak Senova | 2017-2020

The CrossSections project is a cross disciplinary research platform focusing on artistic research, dialogues and production. The project reflects on "process" in the form of an open format with the aim to articulate critical reactions to the political, economic, and social disturbances facing us today. The project emerged from the need to challenge the‘status quo’ across the political spectrum and support effective and critical forms of discursive and artistic productions to emerge.

From 2015 to 2016, the artist-in-residence programme “West Balkan  Calling” took place in Belgrade, Cetinje, Prishtina, Sarajevo, Skopje and Tirana as well as in Graz, Klagenfurt, Krems, Linz and Vienna.  A total of 12 artists visited the cities mentioned above for a residency.  During this time, they realised works of art and/or were inspired to create new works, which will be presented in the exhibition  “responseABILITY”.

The observations and individual experiences made within the guest artists' residencies form the starting point of the exhibition.  They could check their expectations, compare them with their impressions on site and put them into relation to their own living environments. Moreover, the mutual exchange opened up the possibility to compare perceptions of the different cultural spaces.

My Sweet Little Lamb (Everything we see can also be otherwise)

Lecture by Sabina Sabolović |  My Sweet Little Lamb (Everything we see can also be otherwise)| Museum of Contemporary Art, Skopje, 7 March 2018, 20.00 h.

Press to Exit Project Space together with Museum of Contemporary Art invites you to the lecture by Sabina Sabolović, member of the curatorial collective What, How & for Whom/WHW

Sabina Sabolović will present the practice of the curatorial collective she is part of - What, How & for Whom/WHW – which is concerned with continuous reconfiguration of the relationships of artistic and cultural production with notions of history and politics.  The presentation will be focused on their most recent project My Sweet Little Lamb (Everything we see can also be otherwise) they co-curated in collaboration with Kathrin Rhomberg.  Titled after a work by Croatian artist Mladen Stilinović (1947-2016), the project was inspired by his life-long anti-systematic artistic approach that searched for more autonomous ways of artistic production.
