The program of the Zagreb's Nano gallery - Art Metamedia - has compressed its tenth year into a festival form and will be presented in Berlin.
"The first part of the Art Metamedia festival has shown the works of 15 contemporary artists and projected them onto the frieze of billboard spaces in front of the Student Center in Zagreb, Croatia.
At Kreuzberg Pavillon in Berlin the exhibition will be slightly modified and will present seventeen authors of different poetics. This cross section is interesting because it allows a comparisons of various contemporary topics, authors of different generations, educational background and their approaches to the medium of video. In some selections, contemporaneity is evident in the questioning of current political issues like migration, political figures and failed revolutions or street riots (Ana Bilankov, Igor Grubić, Marko Marković, Nika Radić); Nina Kurtela uses video to document several months of a performing act which testifies the transformation of the a depot to the Berlin Dance Centre, while some artists use digital media to make (self) reflexive works by questioning the universal themes of nature and consciousness (Davor Sanvincenti, Martina Mezak)", Marta Kiš writes.
Art Metamedia will be shown at Kreuzberg Pavillon (Naunynstraße 53,10999 Berlin) on Friday, October 30th from 8 pm.
