Naked Freedom

Slovenia, 2010/ 19’ 27’’
In collaboration with Zvonka Simčič

Naked Freedom by the Slovenian artist/filmmaker duo Marina Gržinić and Aina Šmid, reflects on the role of (video)art, technology, biopolitics, capital and ideology as overlapping processes that sustain the functioning of contemporary society. Gržinić’s text in the video undermines any absolute pedestal for the artwork by using references to the theoreticians such as Beller, Kopač, Lopez Petit, Deleuze, Nimako, as well as the tacticians of Soviet filmmaking Vertov and Eisenstein. The video re-invents the historical performative strategies of the ex-Yugoslav art scene projected onto contemporary conditions of video art and turning the ‘capitalized’ artwork against itself.
