Gržinić/Šmid - A Selection of Video Works from 1990-2003
Marina Gržinić and Aina Šmid are major figures of Slovenian video art. Their political art attacks the multilayered root of the videographic medium and its relation to mass media. Using cross references from cinema, literature, theatre, visual arts and philosophy, they mobilize a vast cultural reservoir, which they re-read within the social and political reality of post-socialism. In their work transvestism becomes a linguistic strategy. Gržinić´s and Šmid´s works demonstrate that post-communist disillusionment may give birth to an extraordinary dynamism of resistance.
