Performances by Jusuf Hadžifejzović, Ilija Šoškić and Azra Akšamija, in the frame of the exhibition The Heritage of 1989. Case Study: The Second Yugoslav Documents at Moderna galerija (Ljubjana, Slovenia).

To mark the opening of The Heritage of 1989. Case Study: The Second Yugoslav Documents Exhibition. The 1980s through the Prism of Events, Exhibitions, and Discourses – Part 3, Moderna galerija hosted performances by Jusuf Hadžifejzović, Ilija Šoškić and Azra Akšamija.

The exhibition presents a re-enactment of the last big art exhibition in Yugoslavia in 1989: Yugoslav Documents '89 was curated by the artists Jusuf Hadžifejzović and Rade Tadić and realised under the auspices of the ZOI '84 Olimpijski centar Skenderija in the 8,000-square-metre Skenderija Center in Sarajevo. The current exhibition does not attempt to reconstruct Yugoslav Documents '89, but instead highlights its absences; indeed the tendency then had been to reference postmodern trends, rather than completely contextualise itself within the civil aura of Yugoslavia at the time. Here, three artists re-enact and perform to the exhibition, almost thirty years on.
