Marina Gržinić, Aina Šmid
These posters/diagrams/images and texts by Marina Gržinić and Aina Šmid are works that emphasize topics as colonialism, class, racialization, anti-heteronormativity, violent structure of power and subjugation, ghettoization. The visuals are not used as propagandist tools but try to capture the crudeness of social structures and power. The art works’ intonation is placed on the viewers’ role in creating the space of meaning, inviting them to explore the spaces between representation and reality and to become producers of meaning rather than consumers of culture. The references in the works are used almost semi-clandestinely. This methodology refers directly to the aesthetic and political cinematic features of what is known Third Cinema in the 1970s in Latin America.
