Video, SI, 2008, 16′ 10″

Obsession reflects on emancipative politics and the possibility of a production of radical knowledge that is opposing the new and old colonial context of capitalism. Inspired by the knowledge and resistance of Walter Mignolo, Šefik Tatlić, Ana Vujanović and Alain Badiou, the video constructs a conceptual genealogy of video art and its experimental history in the East of Europe, needed due to the changes in video digital production and reworked critical art history vocabularies.

Video is part of the group exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.

Free entrance.
