The common thread running through the exhibited works by 17 contemporary photographers is the images and situations that produce the effect of precarious environments, thus echoing the precarity of life in contemporary society.
In the face of the shifts and changes that occurred in art over the 20th century, painting as an eminently traditional medium ran up against all conceivable boundaries, and also managed to transcend all of them, into either physical or social space.
At the Dawn of yet Another Age of Absurdity: Composition No. 6 is a new edition in a series of performative interventions developed by the Slovenian artist JAŠA in the last two years as a summary and a continuation of the scenario of his 29-week stay at the Venice Biennial in 2015.
The point of departure will be the work of the Slovene-American writer Louis Adamič, whose 120th anniversary of birth was celebrated this year; the Sophia publishing house is soon to publish his work From Many Lands translated into Slovene by Mojca Dobnikar.
