NADA PRLJA IN LONDON
Macedonian artist Nada Prlja is presenting a new project within the Reunion project held in the premises of the Austrian Cultural Forum in London on 1-14 April. The events at the Austrian Cultural Forum consist of an exhibition and discussion on politically engaged art. They will try to answer the question on the context of political art, what happens if art is not “easily” accepted (censure in political art), and most of the discussion will focus on elaboration on the topic how and why political art is financially supported.
At the Austrian Forum Gallery, Prlja is first presenting her new project, “Give to Take” where she is trying to sell (in the true meaning of the word) real estates located in the region of the Balkans by using art systems. Prlja is enabled to sell apartments without commission (that ranges between 3 and 4 percent of the total value of the property in Britain). By this act she sets an opportunity for existence of alternative economy with real estates markets in Britain and in the Balkan region countries being destabilized.
MD: That's wonderful! Bravo!
