Obsedenost (Obsession)

Marina Grzinic and Aina Smid

2008, 16:22 minutes, colour, Slovenian with English Subtitles


The video OBSESSION reflects on emancipative politics and the possibility of a production of radicalknowledge that is opposing the new and old colonial context of capitalism.

The video is based on knowledge and resistance developed on thoughts and ideas by Walter Mignolo, Argentinean, based in USA, Sefik Tatlic, theoretician from  Sarajevo, Ana Vujanovic, theoretician from Belgrade, Badiou, French theoretician  and his  critique of anti-Semitism in Europe and the possibility to think about the signifier "Jew" for  a new politics of Europe. The video constructs a conceptual genealogy of video art and its experimental history in the East of Europe that is to be done due to changes in video digital production and reworked critical art history vocabularies.
