documentary performative / Nina Goropečnik, Đejmi Hadrović, Katja Markič
Art is a cultural creation, so the artist is a civilisational anomaly whose social focus provides it political power.
We are often confronted with the question of whether it is necessary to separate the artist from his art. Is the author of a revered creation an individual or a society that bestows on him the place of artist as genius? And if the boundary of authorship is unclear, who remains responsible when a celebrated work of art is the creation of a problematic personality?
Curated Authorship questions the ethical duty of society, which is left to decide whether or not to destroy the work of morally questionable creators. The singular event, which is constantly documenting itself, exists without a spectator, who is at the same time the active creator of an ever-changing performative gesture.
What traces the experimental performative leaves behind will be seen in the documentary material from the event.
