Presentation by Klelija Zivkovic: “Small Victories”, Dorotej Neshovski “Fictions and the Spaces I Inhabit” and meeting with Ludwig Kittinger, Ana de Almeida and Phelim McConigly(<dienstag abend> collective) | The 6th International Symposium Curating Exchange | Spaces, Functions, Fictions and Other Commons | organized by press to exit project space | 10 May 2017, Social center Dunja, Skopje at 20:00 h
“Small Victories” by Klelija Zivkovic is a project about archiving the changes in the city of Skopje through using personal experience as an artifact. The project aims to explore the relationship of the citizens to their city and utilize their perspective as a unique document that tells a story of a history that is being replaced and re-fabricated.
Dorotej Neshovski’s presentation: “Fictions and the spaces I inhabit” gives an insight into the research interests of the artist regarding the relationship “individual-gallery-institution” and the array of potential readings into the ephemeral versus permanent, public versus institutional, virtual versus physical gallery space while creating a so-called “invisible works.”
Ludwig Kittinger, Ana de Almeida and Phelim McConigly will introduce us with the idea of their site-specific workshop titled “dienstag abend No. 86 “and the way in which interested parties will be involved in it.
As described: “dienstag abend No. 86” is a workshop about situations, interventions and interferences. We want to share the myriad of processes that have come to define how <dienstag abend> takes place through different events, exhibitions and editions. For it we invite our guests to find a situation, to intervene on it and to receive back new interventions and interferences that might take place upon their own work. In our collective practice, a situation may be a way of making our surroundings intelligible to ourselves after an individual reading of the moment. Embracing misunderstandings and errors, these readings fuel ontology of feedback loops and their contingent outcomes, enabling a situational understanding of space instead of an exclusively representative one.
