This event has ended.

Through performance, video, and collaborative workshops artist Milica Tomić finds strategies to include critical voices in the memories and memorials of historical events. She proposes that social sculpture as envisioned by Joseph Beuys is the key method in this endeavor. Tomić will discuss her methodology and her specific interest in how anti-fascist resistance is documented, recalled, and lived daily. Decter contends that whether art serves “to ameliorate or merely sublimate traumas” is an important point for further discussion.

Milica Tomić lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia. She was a resident artist at ArtPace in 2004, received the DAAD artist fellowship in 2006, and was included in Global Feminisms at the Brooklyn Museum in 2008. Critic and curator Joshua Decter is Director of the MPAS Program: Art/Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere, at the Roski School of Fine Arts, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. The evening will be introduced by Andreas Stadler, Executive Director of the Austrian Cultural Forum and moderated by curator Katherine Carl.

Co-sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Forum.
