This project wants to face an enigma. The enigma of how the meeting of two can create a third thing, a third dimension, something that was not there before, and that appears, arises from an unintended manner. This “third thing” while arising, transforms both: 1 and 2 ... thus producing a shift, a process of de-identification. And to do so, this project proposes to alter the conditions and circumstances under which it will be developed. What usually runs in the working studio, will take place in a shared manner. The point where content and methodology meet has to do with the fact that this project wants to propose a process full of encounters.Two of these encounters will be with Vedrana Klepica and Mala Kline; understanding them as an invitation to unexpected events!

Starting point of the work of these international artists is TV image. They are referring, in their own way, to the narrative format of TV shows, they use archive material of TV networks and they cite certain dramaturgy structures of TV program. What is specific about this exhibition is the site of exhitibtion: it's a hi-tech store. In that way, the context of the exhibition is transferred to the works' content. Also, by using that curatorial approach, Maja Čule has shown an excellent feeling for context and social criticism which becomes more closer to people and visitors outside of gallery spaces.
This exhibition is also announce of program Kratke slike (within 11th Fair of Culture (11th to 13th of Dec @ MM centre, Savska 25), Kultura promjene's newest film program orientated mostly toward short films and presentation of rarely seen films, such as experimental film or video works by young author and/or sociocultural aspects found in film festivals.

ANAGOOR / VIRGILIO BRUCIA
Teatro Vascello / 15th and 16th November - Romaeuropa Festival
Our classic, the classic of all Europe, is Virgil.
Thomas Stearns Eliot
Poetry and power, beauty and violence, memory and consensus: with VIRGILIO BRUCIA Anagoor addresses these issues in a surprising perspective, going into the laboratory of the intellectual who sang the advent of the Roman Empire and somehow forged the heritage and the central educational tradition of Western Europe. Virgil bears the prejudice of being the singer of Octavian Augustus, who murdered any hope of re-establishing a republic in Ancient Rome, and later on the burden of being the symbol of the tradition of Western Colonialism. A poet in the service of imperial ideology whose solemn aura, however, Anagoor sees as cracked and in turmoil underneath: VIRGILIO BRUCIA thus becomes an opportunity to overturn the relationship between art and power, the role of culture and memory, imperial war, violence and Virgil’s bond (being he the son of peasants from Mantua) with nature, an element that often appears, in the foreground or in the background,
in the works of this Latin poet as well as in the creations of countryside settled Anagoor.
