Projected Temporality / La temporalité projective

 

MASKA, vol. XXVII,  No. 149–150 (autumn 2012)

The autumn issue of Maska addresses three selected art projects and actions in which artists (again) tackle the present moment in a more active, contextual and critical manner; some do it through transcending the borders of the given and established art system, by questioning and broadening the notion of the political in contemporary art: with a reading marathon of Cankar's play Servants  [Hlapci] in front of the Slovene parliament, students of the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television staged a clear protest against financial cutbacks in tertiary education and against the so-called austerity measures  of those in power; through online poetry publications, the art group Word Is a Weapon, Draw It From Your Mouth [Beseda je orožje, vzemi jo iz ust] which took over the virtual spaces of Slovene media, highlights the apolitical quality of endless online comments and forums and opens the possibilities for a number of emancipatory effects of their performative readings; the reading performance of the play They Live [Oni žive] by Maja Pelević and Milan Marković has demonstrated how artists can occupy the spaces of politics regardless of the cramped production conditions and turn them into a supreme theatre experience. Projective Temporality, a comprehensive themed section, was edited by Dr Bojana Kunst who commissioned a series of contributions focusing on the relationship between artist's work and time, in particular on the issue of the temporal conditions of contemporary artists' work and their impact on the contemporary art production. This jubilee double issue of Maska was produced in collaboration with the French centre of artistic research Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers in Paris which is the reason for the trilingual themed section.
