CINEMA ROOM, Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina
Theo Prodromidis is an artist based in Athens, Greece. His practice includes film, installation and performance, which combines historical research, fiction and documentary elements and induces a variety of associations by critically examining the relationships and contemporary operations of architecture, the philosophical discourse, the modernist and other avant-gardes, auteur cinema and devised theater techniques, amongst others.
Theo will present a selection of his practice and talk about the project he is developing in Novi Sad for Risk Change that engages with informal education, mobility and citizenship and reflects on duet and group dynamics and synagonism.
The residential program is realized with support of Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina and ‘Novi Sad 2021 - European Capital of Culture’ Foundation, within the project Risk Change.

The current exhibition on Rosemarie Trockel is part of a series of monographic exhibitions in the Institut's program that includes Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz and Gerhard Richter. This not only illustrates the standing that accrues to the artist's work within contemporary art. The artistic positions of the elder colleagues also, in a cryptic way, form the programmatic starting point for Rosemarie Trockel's concepts.
An art scene that has been largely male-dominated, even into the 1980s, spurs Rosemarie Trockel to dissent. She persistently formulates counterpositions in which she confronts the male artist-genius with feminine roles and subject matter. The various groups of works reflect her standpoint within a decidedly feminine artistic realm and are unstinting in their fundamental critique of the prevailing art system.
