Zoran Todorović: Several Panoramas for One Phenomenology of the Irrational
12–30 April 2021

You are invited to Zoran Todorović’s exhibition: Several Panoramas for One Phenomenology of the Irrational, which will be on view from Monday, 12 April 2021, between 4 and 8 pm, at artKIT, Glavni trg 14, Maribor.


Several Panoramas for One Phenomenology of the Irrational
is realised as a fictional documentary GPS intervention that thematises some of the symptomatic episodes in the history of the attitudes that the protagonists of the artistic avant-garde of the first half of the 20th century had towards direct political action. They are marked by An Outline for a Phenomenology of the Irrational, a book written by Marko Ristić and Koča Popović in 1931, and can be further followed through the life stories of their authors, who differ precisely on the question of the way that the revolution, which they both believed in, could successfully be realised.

The work is formed around collected archival material that follows the numerous polemics that developed around the book after its publication, but especially the discussion between the authors themselves. The protagonists of the work are various theoretical and art groups that are tried by the relation between politics and art just like the authors of An Outline. The participants in the project were the Group for Conceptual Politics (GCP), Edicija Jugoslavija, Baraba Bookselling and Publishing Co-operative and the writer Biljana Andonovska, who interpreted the archival material or the authors of the book themselves in line with their own aesthetical and ideological stances.

The work is realised as a performative interpretation of collected texts in places that were important for Marko Ristić and Koča Popović, such as the Sutjeska National Park or Vrnjačka Banja, Kosmaj and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade. The gallery installation is primarily intended for an in situ GPS intervention of the public in the galleries and museums of modern and contemporary art that are directly related to the project of Yugoslav modernism and thereby with the actors of the mentioned text, who importantly contributed to the project.

Zoran Todorović
(1965, Serbia) graduated in painting in 1992 from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in the class of Prof Milica Stevanović, and in 1995 obtained his master’s degree under her mentorship. He was an Assistant at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade between 1998 and 2006, and has worked as an Assistant Professor there since 2006. Zoran Todorović has established a complex and controversial art practice of researching, developing and implementing (liminal, transformational, provocative) relations between art, science and micropolitics in connection with the human body, so human body in the contemporary culture of arbitrariness, alienation and absorption.

Admission free. You can view the exhibition in line with the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health, from Monday to Friday between 4 and 8 pm, and on Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm.
