special public event program of press to exit project space
in Cultural Centre CK
Saturday, 14th of November, 6pm
On Saturday, November 14th, at 18h at the Cultural Centre CK, press to exit project space will held a special public event program titled “THINK! THINK! THINK!” curated by Yane Calovski consisting of promotion of 3 publications, a public discussion and a group exhibition curated by press to exit’s guest curator Fatos Ustek.
The public event reinstates the main programs of press to exit project space in one cohesive framework. The aim is to examine the productions and the narrative which were carefully crafted over the last 5 years and the meaningful trace press to exit project space has left on the Macedonian and international artistic and curatorial production.
The book titled “THINK! THINK! THINK! Expending the present, launching the future” is edited by Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska as a collection of commissioned texts, interviews and artistic interventions by regional and international cultural practitioners as well as an index of events and projects dating from 2004-9. The book provides a medium for reflection on the issues facing the independent artistic and curatorial production in the region and beyond. In the frame of the promotion of the book a public debate will take place with the following list of participants: Antonia Majaca – curator of the Gallery Miroslav Kraljevic from Zagreb, the Macedonian artist Aleksandar Stankoski, Inga Zimprich – independent curator and curator from Berlin, Fatos Ustek – independent curator from Istanbul based in London, and Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska.
Additionally, the books from the New Project Production series 2009 “Hidden Identities” by Neda Firfova and “1/8” by Flora Aliuce will be promoted.
press to exit project space was established in 2004 by artists Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska as a special program-based artist initiative for research and production in the field of visual arts and curatorial practices.
This event is part of DIVERSions, a special program of the Swiss Cultural Programme, marking the 10 years of SCP presence in Macedonia.
THINK! THINK! THINK! is supported by Swiss Cultural Programme in the Western Balkans, Pro Helvetia – the Swiss Arts Council, and the European Cultural Foundation.
