Publisher's Synopsis

Igor Grubic's project for the Venice Biennale, documenting Croatia's transition to capitalism.Igor Grubic has been actively working as a multimedia artist from the beginning of the 1990s. His work includes photography, film, and site-specific interventions in public spaces. Since 2000 he has been a producer and author of documentaries, TV reports, and socially committed commercials. Grubic's project for the Venice Biennale, Traces of Disappearing in Three Acts (2006-19), is already thirteen years in the making. It consists of three interrelated photo essays and an animated film, set in a specially designed mise-en-scène. The project began in 2006 when the artist began documenting the transition Croatia was facing after the war, with a particular focus on the shift from socialism to capitalism, from a central, stated-planned system to a free market economy. It explores how this has affected changes in habitation, the urban fabric, public space, and social relations. Also included are essays by Katerina Gregos and WHW.
