the post-yugoslavian condition of institutional critique

Against the background of a more general enquiry into artistic and political institutional critique in the project transform, the current issue of the eipcp web journal transversal undertakes a specific survey of the territory of ex-Yugoslavia. The starting points of post-Yugoslavian institutional critique are based on partly shared experiences from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s and the neoliberal transformation processes of the past twenty years. Yet they also fan out into a multitude of breaks, discontinuities and dislocations, depending on the different positions in these neoliberal/neocolonial processes that have developed in the geographies between Croatia and Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo, Bosnia and Slovenia.
