End of language – Wittgenstein re-imagined in Gallery - Legacy of Milica Zorić and Rodoljub Čolaković - Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade.

On Friday 15th of March 2024. At 6 p.m. in Gallery Legacy of Milica Zorić and Rodoljub Čolaković of Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade will be held opening of the exhibition End of language – Wittgenstein re-imagined. The exhibition presents the works of Serbian and Austrian artists/participants of the competition, which was organized in an online format during the 2022 under the auspices of the Austrian Cultural Forum and website for art and science Lichtfelder.org.

Participating artists: Ana Maria Lima Dimitrijević, Anita Witek, Arnold Reinthaler, Astrid Schwarz, Barbara Hoeller, Daniela Fulgosi, Dea Džanković, Doris Theres Hofer, Dragana Žarevac, Dunja Trutin, Gerda Lampalzer, Irena Simić, Jochen Höller, Isabella Kohlhuber, Lana Vasiljević, Michael Heindl, Ernst Miesgang, Miljana Niković, Žarko Aleksić, Danica Bićanić, Boris Burić, Goran Despotovski, Nikola Radosavljević, Roswitha Weingrill/Stevan Kojić, Werner Jauk/Laura Sophie Meyer, Daniel Rothbart,Sonja Meller, Stefan Winsperger, Vanja Novaković.

The competition included proposals and interdisciplinary research inspired by the ideas of the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, who worked in the field of logic, mathematical philosophy, philosophy of mind and language. The received proposals and the remarkable ways in which Wittgenstein’s thought about language in the contemporary context is reflected in artistic practices undoubtedly displayed an up-to-date interest of his philosophical theses, inviting us to confront what we know or believe we understand. The exhibition will present works in a wide range of creative articulations from minimalist language interventions, video installations, electro-acoustic experiments, sculpture, and collage to digital applications, visual poetry, and performative scenarios. In an age when AI generates its own system of cognition through codes, building technological alternatives even to the creative processes of human beings, the works in the exhibition provide a glimpse into the interstices where artistic exploration still holds primacy. One of the goals of the project is to further connect and strengthen the cooperation between the Serbian and Austrian art scenes, notably through the production of new art work specifically for this exhibition, getting to know different protagonists (institutions, individuals) active through practice, research and theoretical work in the field of contemporary art.

Exhibition will be opened until 6th of May 2024.

Exhibition initiator is Austrian Cultural Forum Belgrade, project concept and management Milica Lapčević (Lichtfelder.org) and curator and coordinator for MoCAB: Miroslav Karić.
