Radenko Milak on Venice Biennale Giardini Arsenale

Bosnia and Herzegovina will present itself at the forthcoming 57th La Bienalle di Venezia, with the project ‘’University of Disaster’’ by Radenko Milak and guests.

Artist Radenko Milak will represent Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 57th La Biennale di Venezia with the project ‘’University of Disaster’’ in collaboration with Roman Uranjek, and guest artists Lamin Fofana, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Juan-Pedro Fabra Guemberena, Loulou Cherinet, Geraldine Juárez in collaboration with Joel Danielsson, Nils Bech in collaboration with Ida Ekblad.

 

Through his work, Radenko Milak questions the imagination of the image in the digital era. His practice involves the real or supposed power of images and their status in our visually saturated societies. He reveals the aesthetic potential and phantoms of each image that haunt our consciences by creating unfaithful echoes of the continuous flow of images in our global visual archive. For this exhibition, the artist has created a Wunderkammer of films, paintings, watercolors, collages, some in collaboration with Roman Uranjek, which gives the political, social and environmental disasters an entirely new dimension, inviting us to drift towards the horizons of a world where art becomes the last form of resistance to current and future disasters.
