InteresniSafari: 

Mariborjani in Mariborčani – Med hohštaplerji in lumpnproletariatom


S tokratnima gostoma rezidenčnega programa SobaZaGosteMaribor - Matjažem Ruštom in Robertom Marinom se bomo v sklopu InteresnegaSafarija sprehodili po mestu in spoznavali dva različna svetova. Na eni strani malomeščanske momente in prostore kvazi viskokih standardov, za protiutež pa še lokacije pajzlkulture in lumpnproletarjata. Začeli bomo v srcu "pravega" Maribora in se le za trenutek ustavili na desnem bregu "drugega" Maribora, kot ga razume pravi Mariborjan. Podali se bomo po sledeh propadlih megalomanskih podvigov in med drugim spoznali prvi mariborski "šoping center", oziroma, kar je od njegove veličine ostalo.
Med vračanjem proti centru mesta bomo nedvomno spoznali, da eden brez drugega ne moreta, saj sta kot dve plati istega kovanca, skupaj tvorita delček celote mariborske mentalitete in identitete.

Zbirno mesto: Glavni trg, v petek 19. 7. ob 10.30
Sprehod bo vodil um. zg. Simon Žlahtič.

Vljudno vabljeni!



Robert Marin in Matjaž Rušt - Spoznajte rezidenta

Vabljeni na spoznavni večer z aktualnima rezidentoma SobeZaGoste – Robertom Marinom in Matjažem Ruštom, v petek 12. 7. 2019, ob 19. uri, v Galerijo K18 (Koroška cesta 18)

Roberta Marina in Matjaža Rušta v tandemu poznamo predvsem po projektu "Najlepše mesto na svetu", ki označuje serijo dokumentarnih fotografij nastalih v Ljubljani, katere avtorja kontinuirano objavljata na spletnem fotoblogu že od leta 2014. Osnovno izhodišče omenjenega projekta je superlativni citat ljubljanskega župana Zorana Jankoviča, s katerim ta pozitivno afirmira cilje mestne razvojne politike. Avtorja z zajemanjem melanholičnih in absurdno delujočih motivov z družbenega obrobja reflektirata realnost in tako gledalca soočata z estetiko, ki predstavo o najlepšem mestu na svetu – Ljubljani, prizemljuje s surovo neposrednostjo.
Soroden projekt naslovljen "Mesto miru" sta avtorja izvedla tudi na kratki rezidenci v Slovenj Gradcu, Maribor pa je njuna, vsaj kratkoročna, prihodnost.
Na dogodku bomo imeli priložnost prisluhniti tudi predstavitvi izbranih samostojnih fotografskih projektov "I Still Believe In Santa Claus" Roberta Marina in "Novi svet" ter "Politična krajina" Matjaža Rušta. Več...




Can Do More! Must Do More!

by Gildo Bavčević

Galery K18, Koroška cesta 18
Exhibiton on display till June 15th, every working day from 2 - 6 pm

The current artist in residency Gildo Bavčević made several performative interventions at various abandoned locations in Maribor (MTT-Maribor Textile industry, underpass near the bus station, former factory Boris Kidrič, planned cultural centre MAKS or space of former TAM). Those locations are witnesses of the collapsed economy and have as such become a scenography of planned interventions. With absurd acts Gildo Bavčević, on one hand, exposes abandoned spaces, on the other hand, the inability of society to correctly approach the solving of economic, social or ecological issues.



Gildo Bavčević ( b.1979, Split, Croatia) is a multimedia artist interested in different forms of socially engaged art and ways of tackling social and political issues. He has created many performances, video performances, video installations, short films, as well as the sound in three feature-length films. In addition to the presentation of his works in his solo shows, he has participated in a large number of group exhibitions and festivals in Croatia and abroad. He has won a prize at the 39th Split Salon exhibition of contemporary art (Splitski Salon) for his video performance Plastic Man Machine and first prize at 46th Croatian Film Festival (Revija hrvatskog filmskog stvaralaštva) for his documentary Mreža solidarnosti (Solidarity Network), which was his graduate thesis in 2013 with which he obtained his MA in Film and Media Production from Split's Art Academy, from which he received the title of assistant professor. He is a member of both the Croatian Freelance Artist Association and Split's Croatian Visual Artist Association. He lives and works in Split.
