Glossary of Common Knowledge

Geopolitics II

29 – 30 May 2019, Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, +MSUM


The Geopolitics referential field is repeating from the previous edition because we feel such wide referential fields can never be fully exhausted. The first edition of the Geopolitics referential field took place in 2015. A new group of international narrators will address their current research or artistic projects and propose terms signified by specific local environments to go beyond the dominant epistemological models in contemporary art. They will produce a multitude of voices that will explore alternative ways of making global alliances, either by drawing from historical case studies or addressing urgent sociopolitical issues.


Participants: Sara Buraya (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía), Steven Ten Thije (Van Abbemuseum), Anja Isabel Schneider (M HKA), Maria Iñigo Clavo (MACBA), Meriç Öner (SALT), Kuba Szreder (Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej w Warszawie), Zdenka Badovinac (MG+MSUM), Bojana Piškur (MG+MSUM), Ida Hiršenfelder (MG+MSUM), Jennifer Hayashida (Akademin Valand), Jesús Carrillo (Universidad Autónoma), Chương-Đài Võ (Asia Art Archive), Vali Mahlouji (curator), María Berríos (curator), Miran Mohar (artist), Jonas Staal (artist), Vladan Joler (Share Foundation).
