The exhibition Nicht Fallen by Slovenian artist Jošt Franko is part of an ongoing interdisciplinary project that has been collecting, chronicling and depicting the communities and landscapes scarred and marginalised by the war in the former Yugoslavia since 2017. Juxtaposed with found objects, the images of daily life raise issues that, although specific to the historical and geographic realities of the region, testify to the universality of recurrent violence and the perpetuation of conflict long after the war has ended.
Opening of exhibition is scheduled for 8th of September 2020 at the Kresija Gallery, Stritarjeva street 6, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Audience attending exhibition will have opportunity to engage into unique BITE of Art experience and use their smart phones to access a digital database of, for this purpose specially created BITE of Art application and browse information on the displayed works, artists and exhibition.
Jošt Franko is a visual artist and photographer with a master’s degree from Goldsmiths University. His practice is based on interdisciplinary art & research projects exploring migration, workers’ rights, and the ignored parallel histories of the communities and individuals living in the region of the former Yugoslavia, by means of photography, video installations, collage, and texts.
BITE of Art project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
