LEAP AND DIVE
Identity of female artists in (new)media practice

Participants: Breda Beban, Vesna Gerić, Jelena Jureša, Bojana S. Knežević, Andreja Kulunčić, Bogdanka Poznanović, Marica Radojčić, Lidija Srebotnjak-Prišić, Nataša Teofilović, Isidora Todorović, Vesna Tokin, Lea Vidaković

The exhibition Skok i zaron (Leap and Dive) stems from the examining the position of women in the art scene who mainly played a marginal role throughout history, hence female artists, critics and theorists appeared as isolated phenomenon. Today, more and more women are opting for artistic professions, and therefore for the visual arts too, as shown by the results of various studies conducted in Serbia.
The poem “Diving into the Wreck" (1973) by the American feminist and anti-war activist Adrienne Rich speaks about freedom and women’s’ rights through the introduction of the motif of a symbolic diver who explores the underwater world which few can see, alluding to self-conscious woman’s view of the system of power as well as the freedom and courage to embark on an exploration of inaccessible, unconventional and non-traditional worlds.

WE CUT THE CABLES
Multimedia platform for female culture, activism and theory K.A.T.

Participants: Violeta Vojvodić Balaž, Darija Medić, Andrea Palašti, Ana Nedeljković, Monika Sigeti, Nataša Teofilović, Zorica Čolić, Katarina Petrović, Bojana Knežević, Isidora Pejović, Radmila Trebovac, Ana Stefanović, Vesna Manojlović

The exhibition Isekle smo kablove (We Cut the Cables) deals with the problematization of the media production from the female perspective. The title itself alludes to the analogue nature of the exhibition as the participants do not exhibit their works, but the replicas of the works in the analogue form (on the facade flags). Within the concept, next to the flags, texts are displayed, texts that problematize the experiences (personal, technical/technological, socio/cultural) the participants went through during the creation of their works. In this way the exhibition foregrounds the problems that arise (technical, financial, structural, system and institutional) during production of one media work and in that way, through a critical prism locates the focal points for discussion and for the struggle to improve the status of all those engaged in this kind of production.
