Art Always Has Its Consequences final exhibition

Subversive film festival /

The exhibition “Art Always Has Its Consequences” considers the “politics of exhibiting” and, by including historic works and new productions, archive material and research documentation, reconstructing and reinterpreting paradigmatic artistic and exhibition positions from the 1950s until today, shows the historical continuity of similar art experiments which question the social role of art.
The exhibition has emerged as a result of a two-year collaborative project of the organizations tranzit. hu from Budapest, Muzeum Sztuki from Lodz, New Media Centre_kuda.org from Novi Sad and What, How and for Whom/WHW from Zagreb. Through various formats the project deals with topics connected with the modernistic inheritance and joint history. The research was directed towards a specific historical, economic and political context and also towards the forming of internationally recognized “universal” norms, in relationship to which the exhibited art practices try to affirm historical continuity and to question their own context.
