Exhibiton opening: Saturday, July 6th, 20h

A reverie of printed voices, the exhibition of Montenegrin artist Radisav Stijović is an art-research project that seeks to revive the memory of the community of authors (Mara Radonjić, Luca Rosandić, Ružica Markotić and others) of illegal techniques in Split of the National Liberation Movement during the WWII.

Building the research through historical memoirs and archival periodicals, the project maps the places of former illegal techniques in the city itself, and on the trail of radical media archaeology, examines the so-called dead media in the context of illegal techniques in Split: pamphlets, proclamations and short newspaper sheets, printed on a schapirograph and/or Gestettner.

Taking theoretical insight from Saidiye Hartman, Donna Haraway (methodology of critical fabulation, i.e. thesis of becoming with), the work will bring artistic research into a hybrid connection with speculative narratives, in order to shed light on the value of these marginal and forgotten voices and examine the specificity of DIY printing expression as a possible means of resistance.

Radisav Stijović was born in 1999 in Kotor, Montenegro. He approaches his artistic practice from a position of curiosity and self-education. His works are most frequently realised in the form of video installation, text, and expanded printmaking. The thematic preoccupations of his work are linked to vulnerability and porosity, confrontations with technology, and neglected labor.

He graduated in graphic design from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cetinje, UCG. He has studied as an exchange student at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade, and the Design Studio, AF in Zagreb. He is a member of the experimental graphic collective Treća ruka. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions both domestically and internationally.


The exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia and the City of Split. The work of the Platform "Culture Hub Croatia" is financially supported by the National Foundation for the Development of Civil Society and the Kultura nova Foundation.
