U sklopu ciklusa NMG@PRAKTIKA u galeriji Praktika, u Domu mladihu Splitu, Ulica slobode 28, 19. svibnja u 19 sati otvara se izložba Adele Jušić naziva Eto nam žena. Izložba je otvorena do 25. svibnja te se može razgledati radnim danom od 18 do 21 sat. Predavanje Adele Jušić i Andreje Dugandžić će se održati prije same izložbe u četvrtak, 19. svibnja u 17 sati u kinu BETON.

O RADU

“Ona je otišla u rat jer je rat značio slobodu. One su pale za slobodu. Eto nam žena! Eto nam žena! Željne smo rada i napora. Naš rad je naša dužnost. Ovo više nije borba gdje se lije krv, sad se lije znoj. Na rad idemo s pjesmom. Mi kad radimo, mi baš zapnemo.”[1]

Jedna od najpoznatijih i najaktivnih umjetnica mlađe generacije s ovih prostora, Adela Jušić, u sklopu ciklusa izložbi NMG@PRAKTIKA kreirati će didaktički kolaž Eto nam žena na izvanjskom staklu zgrade Doma mladih. Rad se oslanja na istraživanje koje su Andreja Dugandžić i Adela Jušić radile u sklopu programa Šta je nama naša borba dala? Udruženja za kulturu i umjetnost CRVENA, koje je rezultiralo kreiranjem online Arhiva antifašističke borbe žena BiH i Jugoslavije (www.afzarhiv.org).

Rad govori o promjenama politika spram žena, uspoređujući period početka Drugog svjetskog rata, kada su žene masovno mobilizirane u ratne redove i pozadinsku borbu, u sklopu Antifašistčkog fronta žena, u kojoj su sudjelovale na različite načine, te poslijeratno sudjelovanje žena u izgradnji nove države i društva, posebno na dobrovoljnom radu, te velikom preokretu poimanja ženskog rada i doprinosa društvu koji se događa u 50-tim godinama 20. stoljeća, kada se žene ponovo pozivaju u svoje “prirodne” uloge majki, domaćica, odgajateljica i njegovateljica.

Ovim periodom, odnosno temom, Adela Jušić se kroz svoj umjetnički i aktivistički rad bavi već godinama, jer se radi o kratkom povijesnom razdoblju kada žene sa ovih prostora po prvi put u ulaze u javni i politički život na velika vrata, koja su im do tada bila zatvorena uslijed opresije patrijahalnog drušva. Do danas se ovakav masovan i značajan društveni i politički iskorak nije ponovio.

U sklopu gostovanja autorica u Splitu, Adela Jušić  održat će i predavanje o svom radu na projektu online Arhive, a izložba će biti popraćena glazbenim performansom lIvane Dizdarević.

Izlagala je na oko 100 međunarodnih izložbi, dobitnica je nagrade YVAA 2010, Henkel Young Artist Price CEE 2011 i Specijalne nagrade Okto­barskog salona 2013. Sudjelovala je na brojnim rezidencijalnim programima za umjetnike/ce (ISCP, New York, i.a.a.b. Basel), te bila sudionica mnogih radionica i panela (na London School of Economics, Royal College of Art London itd.)

Andreja Dugandžić rođena je 1978. u Sarajevu. Završila je studij Antropologije u Utrechtu, te magistrirala Ljudska prava i demokraciju u Jugoistočnoj Europi, Univerzitet u Sarajevu i Bologni, 2004. godine. Proteklih deset godina aktivna je na kulturno-umjetničkoj sceni u Bosni i Hercegovini i regiji kao producentica, organi­zatorica, umjetnica i aktivistkinja. U umjetničkom radu koketira sa različitim formama, koristeći se narativom kao osnovnim sredstvom izražavanja. Osnivačica je CRVENE, gdje radi od 2010. go­dine.

Ilvana Dizdarević / Elle. M rođena je 1982. u Sarajevu. Dugi niz godina bavi se eksperimen-tiranjem s glazbom i DJ-anjem. Njen prvi javni nastup bio je line up s sarajevskom progresiv-nom feminističkom grupom Starke u sklopu V day-a. Eksperimentirajući s zvukom industrije, prirode, mašina i zvukovima svakodnevnice, ona prevodi emociju u ritam, pregovarajući frekvenciju, boju i autentičnost zvuka s intenzi-tetom javnog iskustva. Njeni nastupi određuju se kao minimal, deep, techhouse, ali ona eksperimentira i s popom, punkom i new wave synth popom. Godine 2012. s Andrejom Dugandžić osniva duo Black Water and her Daughter.

ABOUT THE WORK

“She went to war because war meant freedom. They have fallen for freedom. Here come the women! Here come the women! We are eager to work and endeavor. Our work is our duty. This is not a fight where the blood is pouring, sweat is now pouring. We go to work with the song. When we work, we just dig in.”[2]

One of the most famous and active artists of the younger generation from this area, Adela Jušić, will create a didactic collage Here come the women as part of the cycle of exhibitions NMG@PRAKTIKA. It will be placed on the outer glass of the building of Youth Home in Split. This work is underpinned by research that Andreja Dugandžić and Adela Jušić, as part of the Association for Culture and Arts RED, were working on under the project What has our struggle given us? which resulted in creating online Archive of antifascist struggle of women of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Yugoslavia (www.afzarhiv.org).

The work speaks about changes in policy towards women, comparing the period of the beginning of the Second World War, their mobilization into war lines and background battles in which they participated in different ways, and post-war participation of women in building a new state and society, especially in the voluntary work, and a great turnaround in understanding women’s work and contribution to society that is going on in the 50’s of the 20th century, when women were called back to embrace their “natural” roles of mothers, housewives, educators and caregivers again.

Adela Jušić deals with this period and theme for years through her artistic and activist work, because it is a short historical period when women in this region, are entering in the public and political life significantly for the first time, which previously wasn’t possible due to the oppression of a patriarchal society. Such a massive and significant social and political breakthrough has not been repeated to date.

As a part of their visit to Split  Adela Jušić will give a lecture about  Online Archive , and the exhibition will be accompanied by musical performance of Ilvana Dizdarević (DJ-na Ellee.M).

In 2012 she and Andreja Dugandžić established duo Black Water and her Daughter.
