A Broadcast in collaboration with: Anna Dasović

BÜCHS’N’RADIO is a broadcast conceived by Andrei SICLODI together with the participants in the Fellowship Program for Art and Theory at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen.

In the context of the FIRST BÜCHSENHAUSEN FOCUS WEEKS 2020, Fellow Anna DASOVIĆ invited the interested audience to partake in a critical reading and discussion of an excerpt from the material that forms the foundation of her work at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. Central to this project is the question, how European histories of colonialism have both produced Western Europe’s militarized masculinities and formed the continent’s relation to and the aesthetics of the notion of the ‘Other.’

In the May-broadcast of Büchs’n’Radio you will hear this presentation.

Anna DASOVIĆ’s artistic practice focuses on the rhetorical structures that make genocidal violence visible and those deployed to obscure politically inconvenient aspects of such conflicts. Central to her work is an exploration into the figure of the bystander and the ways in which the unimaginable and the unrepresentable—categories produced by the discourse on genocide—are evoked to neglect the responsibility of witnessing through representation. Dasović is interested in that rejection and in the exclusion of knowledge that is held in the body but denied by society’s authorizing structures. Though Dasović studied photography, and her installations and videos retain an element of formal precision, she now works in a broadly interdisciplinary manner. Her methodology involves archival research, fieldwork, interviews, and bibliographic research.
