58TH VENICE BIENNALE | Marko Peljhan: Here we go again … SYSTEM 317

OPENING | 8 May 2019 | 4 p.m. | Arsenale, Artiglierie, Venice
At the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, Peljhan will present a new work from his Resolution series. This series, which has evolved over some 20 years, proposes some specific material and applicable solutions to certain problems in society. It is the artist’s response to the state in which the world finds itself today, calling for a rediscovery of space and of the place, the physical location of an individual, and a utopian response to the rapid changes in the environment.

COMMENTARY #11 | Izar Lunaček: Rent-a-Sin, or, You Can Take Everything Back

From Wednesday, 20 March 2019
Izar’s line drawing of the first two people facing the classic dilemma will adorn the MSUM vestibule for a while in an attempt to rock the boat a bit in this awesome time we’re living in, when everything is both unspeakably fateful, part of one’s browsing history and stored online for all eternity, and, on the other hand, ephemeral, transient, exchangeable after a month if one grows tired of it or realizes the style doesn’t suit.

EXHIBITION | Southern Constellations: The Poetics of the Non-Aligned

07 March 2019 — 10 September 2019
The exhibition in Moderna galerija will focuse on the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM); more precisely it will emphasize the ideas, ideals and principles of the movement, particularly in close connection with its cultural policies and place them in a contemporary context with the question: Could there be a non-aligned contemporaneity? And if so, what would it be like?
