Zvezdogled (Stargazer) (1997)

Stargazer is a video work in which six artists and activists from Eastern Europe display their processes of thinking, their conceptual stances, their credos: Vadim Fishkin, Leonora Mark, Maja Vauda, Tomaz Pipp, Sanja Grcic, Klaudija Poropat. The artistic and activist positions in the video are reedit in a way to show the intersection of artistic obsessions and existential and social performativity. The Stargazer is an obsessive, politically engaged video that forces the viewer, in the world without secrets and mercy, to rethink his or her proper position. Between the documented artists and activists is established a deep synthesis; for example exists a deep relation between the pervasive commercialisation of TV in relation to media art, as shown by the Russian artist Vadim Fishkin, and the social humiliated position imposed by the state and its institutions towards handicapped and depriveleged youth, as explained by Klaudija Poropat, being herself a handicapped activist. All the six artists and activists are put in a hybrid and controversial position of questioning the culture around them.
