The Bring In Take Out - Living Archive - Sarajevo

University Campus

Interactive Contemporary Art Exhibition

The Red Min(e)d i is pleased to announce the 3rd edition of The Bring In Take Out Living Archive to take place from 27th until 30th September in Sarajevo.

Starting from the 1st edition in Zagreb – with a focus on the relational politics between feminism, contemporary art and the post/Yugoslav space, through the 2nd edition in Ljubljana – motivated by the feminist strategies of creating and processing an archive as the living knowledge of everyday life, with the 3rd edition in Sarajevo, Red Min(e)d continues to move towards a social articulation of the public space in the common field of art, theory and practice.

With Sarajevo edition, Red Min(e)d wishes to challenge the meaning of commons through the process of reflecting, articulating and building a social space using architectural, artistic and curatorial means. Inside the former army base Josip Broz Tito that was in the meantime transformed into the Sarajevo University Campus, we are setting a temporary object – the architectural artwork of Armina Pilav back to back with a playground – the collective artwork of Sarajevo based artists where and around which 3rd edition will happen. Through the sound performance by Irena Tomažin as well as the Curatorial Forum involving local and international speakers ( Antonia Majača, Valentina Pellizzer, Lala Raščić, Jelena Vesić, Amila Puzić and Anja Bogojević among others), the Living Archive, accompanied by its permanent stations – The Reading Room, Perpetuum Mobile and the LA lab – continues to work towards the creation of the common ground for voicing out emerging subjects.

Following the feminist statement of Silvia Federici on the politics of commons in which she concludes that: “this time, however, it is women who must build the new commons so that they do not remain transient spaces, temporary autonomous zones, but become the foundation of new forms of social reproduction”, we want to open up a counter-power space (FORUM) for thinking and discussing common strategies for an emancipatory process of social re/production and to move towards – by experimental and collaborative work.
