Residency Unlimited is delighted to present “Voyage to Europe – From Life to Death to Life”, a selection of videos by Serbian artists, curated by Zorana Djakovic Minitti and Mia David. This video program is part of the wider project dedicated to the 100th anniversary of WWI that is currently the object of multiple probes and mostly relegated to its memory. Prior to New York, this program was featured at Palais Porcia in Vienna (Austria), Modern Gallery in Subotica ( Serbia) ,Collegium Artisticum, Sarajevo, Bosnia & Hercegovina and Gallery Klovićevi Dvori in Zagreb (Croatia) .
The selected artists reflect upon lost and manipulated values that have affected their past, future as well as the present. Being critical towards their own heritage and geo-political context in which they were formed, the video works are questioning the change of principles upon which we make decisions and act.
