Sound, which practically has no communicative function, apart from speech, is the key element in the works of Katarina Zdjelar, which are characterized by lyrical interpretation and political connotations. The timelessness and spacelessness in these videos are an important element of Zdjelar’s artworks – making it possible for us to perceive the stories in her works could happen at any time and in any space. On account of this, the viewer finds it easier to focus on the topic of conversation and the gesticulation of the players: key elements for reading and understanding Zdjelar’s meaning. Act I and Act II (the latter is not an independent unit but an integral part of the former) is a video recording of a conversation between an investigator and a person being interrogated; communication between them is possible only through an interpreter.

Artur Zmijewski was born in Warsaw in 1966. He studied at the Faculty of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and made diploma at the studio of Professor Grzegorz Kowalski in 1995. In 1995 he was a bursar of Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. On the exhibition Guarene Arte 2000 he was given Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Per L'Arte Prize for the work An eye for an eye. In 2005 his Repetition was shown in Polish Pavilion in a frame of Venice Biennale. His film Them (2007) was shown on documenta in Kassel. In 2007-2008 he was a bursar of DAAD Artists in Residence in Berlin were he prepared his last project Democracies. He creates installations, photographs' objects, photographs, video realisations and films. Zmijewski was an editor of "Czereja" magazine; he is an art critic and curator as well. In 2010 Artur Zmijewski has received the Ordway Prize administered by the New Museum in New York and Creative Link for the Arts. Artur Zmijewski directs the 7th Berlin Biennale.   Repetition, 2005 video, 75 min Courtesy of the artist, Foksal Gallery Foundation, Warsaw and Galerie Peter Kilchmann, Zurich In 1970 the Stanford Prison Experiment was conceived by Philip Zimbardo. The experiment studied the confrontation of a group of participants with the reality of prison. In his video Repetition, Artur Żmijewski restages and documents Zimbardo’s prison experiment. Żmijewski placed an advertisement in the newspaper, offering readers the opportunity to take part in an experiment for hourly pay. The experiment continued for seven days, and as with the Zimbardo case, the participants were randomly selected to perform the roles of prisoners or guards. Żmijewski’s re-enactment has a symbolic theatrical dimension: whereby an intricate, often emotional event is encoded into an easily digestible product and provided with a local rationalisation – a process that makes for an illusion of order. The re-enactment of Zimbardo’s experiment dissociates the past from any sentiment in an attempt to rejuvenate reality, which has crumbled at this point: occurring outside time, as it were.

Vahida Ramujkic was born in Belgrade where she also graduated Fine Arts Studies. From 1998 till 2008 she lives in Barcelona where in 2001 with Laia Sadurní founds Rotor Collective ( that will be active until 2006. Initiating series of projects and explorations in public space, in playful and improvised mannier Rotor is developing its own methods to approach actuality balancing on the border between art, activism, urban and social studies. Recent projects include : Schengen with ease (2006), Disputed Histories (2008), Storm, return home and other terrible stories for children (2009). In 2008 she initiates collaboration with Aviv Kruglanski with the project of Documentary Embroidery (Barcelona, Cairo, Bristol, Belgrade), Neighbourhood Superheroes (Barcelona, Cairo, 2010), Micro Cultures, in collaboration with micro-organisms (2011).   Disputed Histories Vahida Ramujkić’s project deals directly with the writing of history and history lessons in primary and secondary schools in former Yugoslavia. Even at first glance, it is clear that the interpretation of historical facts in each of the newborn countries differ from what was taught to generations less than two decades ago – at a time when a single and unquestionable history existed. The project Disputed Histories is an installation resembling a classroom. Visitors are presented with an abundance of old and new textbooks written for primary and secondary schools, collected systematically by the artist for years. In many cases, even a glimpse at the cover page reveals where the book was published. Visitors are invited to open, read and compare the content of these books in order to get acquainted with the various countries’ old and new national histories.
