This juxtaposition of images forms part of Croatian artist Sanja Ivekovic's photo collage "Figure and Ground," which pairs images lifted from an unfortunately timed fashion shoot in the September 2001 issue of "The Face" – featuring models dressed as militants – with portraits of terrorists published in "serious" media outlets such as "Newsweek" after 9/11 .Taking as a starting point the Arab uprisings of the past three years, each exhibition features a unique selection of work tailored to the local context.The exhibitions in this year's edition of the visual art platform are curated by Croatian curatorial collective What, How & for Whom (WHW). "'The Wretched of the Earth' was written in 1961," explains Ana Devic, "at the height of the Algerian revolution. While we were thinking about the exhibition, we realized that many of these artists' works were [produced] while we are living in the throes of revolutionary action and thinking. A program of film screenings accompanies the exhibition, beginning on April 9 with sociologist Edgar Morin and anthropologist Jean Rouch's 1961 collaboration "Chronicle of a Summer".Ayari's film will be followed by a screening of Goran Devic's 2012 work "Two Furnaces for Udarnik Josip Trojko," combining archival audio and film recordings to explore the history of the Sisak Ironworks.
