Re: REFERENDUM @ New Media Gallery CROATIA



opening on February 10th 2012

★★ We all live in the TINA (There Is No Alternative) political time. Lie that was often repeated by Margaret Thatcher in the 80-ties about the neo liberalism is now transformed into a brutal EU faction. In TINA political time there is actually no time for understanding the process, it is automated and implemented largely outside society hidden in endless paragraphs. The only remnant that remains when TINA is divided with civil rights is actually the freedom of citizens whether to decide, to vote; to go out well-dressed on a referendum / festival of democracy and to elect. Since we all are in TINA political time, the question whether the Croatian citizens will also give legitimacy to the EU, is superfluous, because the answer already exists in an automated process of the infinite paragraphs.
★★Exhibition Re: REFERENDUM questions how TIA (There Is Alternative) works, what are its mechanisms, mental triggers, asks how is it possible. Exhibition Re: REFERENDUM is a ride on the line TINA-TIA in which we question the fragile border crossing, the overcoming of automaticity, of subversion as a message between the lines as well as subversion as direct action, reaction, and act. ★

  1. On our way to Croatia we took an overnight train, it was an interesting experience, triple stacked bunks in a TINY room.
