MonuMental Histories seeks to question the relevance of monuments in the process of writing history and memory preservation and to point out the consequences of ideological transitions over monuments, most of them abandoned, not assumed or replaced and reconverted, and others recovered by beautification policies. Igor Grubić is part of the group exhibition.
MonuMental Histories is a multimedia project which brings together video productions by artists and women artists whose discourses integrate political commentary to the mechanisms of historical and social manipulation, ideological handling of visual culture, assumes power critique and normative formulas, the difficult interaction with the ideologically conditioned edifice, but also the potentiality of monumental, architectural utopia as the formula of social non-regimentation and also of forced adaptation to an environment temporarily outside of political interests.
