Artist talk with Julia Gaisbacher and Elke Krasny
Julia Gaisbacher is the recipient of the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Recognition Award 2018 for her exhibition proposal “One Day You Will Miss Me”, an ongoing artistic work which critically engages with a city development project currently taking place in Belgrade. The artist documents the different construction phases in her photographs and refers with her artworks to the neoliberal application and marketing logic of this so called “Waterfront Project”. Above all, the well-founded research, which is based on critical media reports and discussions with supporters of the protest movement, was particularly impressive. In this talk with Elke Krasny, the artist will share insights from her project "One Day You Will Miss Me".
