BRACO DIMITRIJEVIC - A RETROSPECTIVE
Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb
27/04/2017 - 21/06/2017
Braco Dimitrijević – A Retrospective presents all the most important phases of the works of this pioneer of conceptual art, who has built an outstanding international career from the end of 1960s to date. The work of Braco Dimitrijević and his 1976 invention of the term Post History were an important influence on two major tendencies in the contemporary art discourse, from critical practices in public space to interventions in museum collections. The constant preoccupations oh his work - the relativity of history in general and of the history of the art in particular, as well as the phenomenon of chance - are represented in this exhibition with both his early works and new works created especially for this occasion.

As the 14th edition of Documenta docks in Athens, an arrangement that seems designed to highlight two poles of the continent’s economic, social and political destiny, ArtReview has been wondering how art contributes to our understanding of and engagement with these kinds of ‘real’ issues. After all, the representation of a problem is always one step removed from the problem itself. So how does art become more than simply an intellectual narcotic that does nothing other than ease consciences in the face of global suffering? This issue is in part dedicated to investigations into how art interacts with real rather than imagined life.
