Stegnar, Horvat in družina
Come closer (if you dare), because I am what I am
In this year's edition of Performa, we come face to face with cannibalism. Autocannibalism. Critics, bloggers, writers, messengers and representatives of our generation will write about themselves, about publicity and their position in the media, about the place of critique, about differences between generations, about generation… About us as we are.
And so I come to the beginning, to a small garage booklet with the title Performa 2011 (Ceci n’est pa performa 2011), and I copy: "It’s not about self-promotion or marketing. It’s not about aestheticized or conceptual artistic enactments or public presentations of individual achievements. No. With their own focus and perception and through their own way of working, the artists reflect, lecture, and perform their contemporaries, someone they either know or not. They present and interpret, perform and lecture, and explain one another. As a way to create a generation, new connections, and possible collaborations." (Katarina Stegnar)
