Summer School as School
5 - 21 August, 2019

Stacion - Center Contemporary Art Prishtina has the pleasure to announce "The Intricate Sense of Truth in Oral Histories" by Hristina Ivanoska, part of the Public Program of Summer School as School 2019.

Storytelling and the notion of oral transfer of data is a tradition on which we rest the case of most of the official historical narratives in relation to women’s history. The oral/immaterial transfer carries the weight of a document that is unscientific and prone to manipulation. Political currency of certain documents lies in the potential of unlocking a change or a paradigmatic shift in how something is perceived. In the process of critically examining the selection of particulars from the authentic materials we find that synthesis of particulars that lead into a narrative and, as a result, history becomes a contested field where the linearity of stories is challenged.
In the frame of "Document Missing” Ivanoska will present a compilation of research based works produced in different mediums in a period of almost two decades (including the 3-chanell video "Naming the Bridge: Rosa Plaveva and Nakie Bajram" and series of performances tilted "Document Missing") focused around the issues of suppression, control and construction of collective memory in regard to women’ resistance strategies and politics.

Hristina Ivanoska (1974) works with objects, texts, drawing, video, performance and installation, often interdisciplinary and as a critical investigation into the experience of present-day social and political systems and their relationship to theory and history. She has exhibited at MOMus Experimental Centre for the Arts, Thessalonica; 2nd International Biennale for Contemporary Art “Autostrada Biennial”, Prizren; Kunsthalle Darmstadt; Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb; Museum of Sculpture – Królikarnia Palace, Warsaw; Research Pavilion, 57th International Venice Biennale; Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje; National Gallery of Macedonia; MUMOK, Vienna; Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz; National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), Bucharest; State Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessalonica; Slovak National Gallery, Bratislava; nGbK – Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst, Berlin; Open Space – Zentrum für Kunstprojekte, Vienna; Association for Contemporary Art, Graz; Konsthall C, Stockholm; Magazin4 - Bregenzer Kunstverein; Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade and other venues.
