To Whom Does the Work Belong?
Margareta Kern received the Award of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade at the 54th October Salon, for the video work The Body State, from her experimental cycle entitled Who Does the World Belong to? in 2013. We are kindly invited to the opening of the solo exhibition, which is the part of the award, on Thursday 19th November at 7pm.
In Who Does the Work Belong to? brunch lecture, Margareta positions the artistic work and working conditions and practices in focus, and in doing so questioning political subjectivization in the times of crises of capitalism as well as the financial crises. The event on Saturday is dedicated to working people, who normally cannot seem to attend this sort of events due to harsh working conditions, and the artist, Margareta Kern will be our host with the breakfast and coffee provided.
Margareta Kern is a visual artist, whose practice engages with the social and political through photography, film, animation, drawing, text and installation, working on complex projects that involve in-depth research and collaboration. Her work combines interest in ideologies that shape our understanding of the centre and margins, with questions around visibility, power, biopolitical body, migrant body, semiotics of capitalism, and its implications for the image-maker as well as the apparatus.
Margareta Kern was born in Croatia in 1974,she grew up in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and has been living and working in London since 1992.
She has relocated to “Oceania, Cornwall” recently.
