Jonathan Blackwood – Without Pity or Sentiment: Conflict in the art of Adela Jušić
Exhibition text, I did nothing wrong, curated by Joakim Hansson, Gallery GRO, Campus Allegro, Jakobstad, Finland

2016
English

We are left with the impression of a fiercely determined and intelligent woman whose life was marked firstly by the National Liberation War in Yugoslavia (1941-45); broader memories offset by humdrum recollections, half-forgotten arguments, the joys and disappointments of children and grandchildren, the revelation of long-nurtured opinions on people and family property; the memories of two wartimes and a long, quiet struggle in a patriarchal peace. It is nothing less than a portrait from all angles; we see the old lady’s face in many different expressions as the artist herself colours her hair, and acts as a silent witness in the film.

Born in Sarajevo and growing up during the Bosnian War (1992-1995), Adela Jušić’s rhetoric is predominantly entwined with issues surrounding memory, personal tragedy and the reality of conflict. Through processing her experiences mainly through the medium of video (The Sniper, 2007), Jušić’s work is at once cathartic and objective, looking at events from a distance in order to critique and reconsider the nature of war … Revealing how wartime memories are intertwined with family and childhood memories, Jušić reminds us of the power of autobiographical work in questioning history and conflict. What is called into question in The Sniper is the reality of war itself, in an attempt to go beyond nationalist, ethnic or religious issues, which have been the main point of discussion throughout the post-war period.

Did you ever think of video performance as a medium in the socio- economic context? Would you choose some other medium or other way of expressing under different conditions? Do you think that socio-economic situations in some ways conditioned your work?

At the beginning, I didn’t think about it like that, but soon I realized it was all actually a direct result of socio-economic realities. Since I didn’t have any substantial means for production, I used one bad camera. I had no cameraperson or video editor, so I did everything myself. So at the beginning the camera and video editing were very simple, and it’s been like that till today, in spite of having better cameras today and a good knowledge of video editing. I like it that way. It’s not that I don’t ever want to try out a bit more expensive production – it just doesn’t make real sense for me. It is hard enough to earn money as an artist, even harder as a Bosnian artist and even more so as a Bosnian video artist, the hardest being a Bosnian female video artist.

Sexing the boarder – Gender, Art and New Media in Central and Eastern Europe – Katarzyna Kosmala (ed.), book
Published by Newcastle Upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

StB_cover

Actually politically queer is a stance that opens the possibility to rewrite a new genealogy from socialism to post-socialism from the perspective of the re-politicization of the space of performance, video and new media art and its history. The passage from socialism toward post-socialism ends in a turbo neoliberal global capitalism. This means that we encounter not only post-socialism but also the turbo capitalist neoliberal Europe of today. In such context, this chapter argues what politically queer position mean today and forms an analysis of the political power of the passage from feminism towards post-feminism (in relation to performance, video and media arts) as well as the passage from socialism toward post-socialism.

The grandmother not only knows the context of her own life, she also follows the lives of the people surrounding her. The spectrum of the source, as well as the quantity of information which stems from her head, makes it clear that grandma is the sovereign ruler of the sum of the whole, someone who enters into the sphere of relations between people around her, i.e. the love of her life, acquaintances, colleagues, close friends, family.

This particular work focuses on Radojka Lakić, who was imprisoned in this building when it was run by the Ustaše; it records the fate of many who were murdered or tortured in this place during that dark period in Sarajevo’s history, and their individual names. Fascist occupiers murdered Lakić herself in September 1941, after a period of severe torture.

The basis of this work was found in Mila Beoković’s 1967 book “Women Heroes”, which features Lakić’s story. This is a complicated and multi-layered installation, featuring a replica of a handkerchief (maramica)  belonging to the partisan Rada Nikolić from Bijeljina. On this handkerchief, Nikolić embroidered the surnames and initials of her friends and comrades who were executed in the Banjica concentration camp.

The entire video is a single shot of Jusic gently applying die to her grandmother’s hair while narrating stories from her life. In a whisper, Jusic speaks in her grandmother’s voice, talking about war, poverty, corruption, hatred – but also love for her children, her husband and her neighbors. The all too ordinary difficulties of her life are made intimate and immediate. Jusic’s grandmother serves a stand-in for all the grandmothers of this world who witness war, death and their families growing apart. Their wisdom is quiet and seldom asked for, and we feel that wisdom here, while watching an old woman get her hair dyed. Jusic’s position is that of an oral historian of sorts, sifting through forgotten stories of subjects that are usually ignored in official historical narratives and reproducing them as best as possible.

“Memory lane” Adele Jušić je djelo koje nastaje i razvija se u procesu traganja za porodičnim fotografijama koje su bile izgubljene tokom rata. Posvećeno je baki koja je ‘uvijek znala kako da okupi cijelu porodicu’ i ocu koji je izgubio život kao vojnik u bosansko-hercegovačkoj vojsci.

Jonathan Blackwood – Title Track “Memory Lane” by Adela Jušić
Online article about exhibition in Galerie du Jour, Agnes B, Paris,  June 2014

Amidst the intense trauma of the 1992-95 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the loss of small personal items seems almost trivial by comparison with the human suffering and the colossal damage to the built environment and infrastructure. However, the near-total destruction of a family’s photographs, the loss of the physical evidence of collective experience and memory, built up over several decades, is in a micro-parallel to the attempted erasure of the collective memory of BiH (…)

Kako su nam oteli Osmi mart

Photography: Almin Zrno
Urban Magazine
Sarajevo, March, 2016
Bosnian

adela jusic

Nažalost, već godinama je ovaj praznik među većinom percipiran kao “dan majki”. To je samo još jedna od brojnih prevara koju nam je patrijarhat uspio servirati, potencirajući tako samo ono što odgovara tom opresivnom sistemu, a to je ženska reproduktivna moć, uloga žene prvenstveno kao majke, njegovateljice i domaćice. Tako su našu istoriju borbe za ravnopravnost učinili skoro pa nevidljivom, te nas od malih nogu učili neku drugu, pažljivo kreiranu i patrijarhatu pogodniju verziju. Sjećam se, kao djeca smo u osnovnoj školi za ovaj dan pravili majkama čestitke, uvjereni da je to dan majki, znajući malo ili ne znajući ništa o istoriji ovog praznika i borbe za ženska prava. Godinama poslije, nakon mnogih čestitki na kojima sam mami crtala cvjetiće i zahvaljivala joj što me je rodila, od majke sam zahtijevala da i ona meni čestita praznik, objašnjavajući joj zašto je to praznik svih žena, pa tako i praznik onih koje ne mogu imati ili nemaju, niti ikada žele imati djecu, muža ili porodicu. Nadalje, svakako, u skladu s politikama i potrebama vječito gladnog, konzumerističkog društva u kojem živimo, ovaj praznik je na još jedan način zloupotrijebljen, pa tako možemo vidjeti, naprimjer, kampanje kao što je Mjesec žene u Konzumu, koji je, je l’, nimalo slučajno baš mjesec mart, gdje nam se nude informacije o sniženjima domaće piletine, paradajza i baby vlažnih maramica. “Drage dame”, obraća nam se Konzum i poziva nas da kao prave dame, ali domaćice prije svega, požurimo na sniženju kupiti, te zatim možda, baš za Osmi mart, spremiti za ručak pile s paradajz salatom mužu koji će doći s posla, dići sve četiri uvis, djeci koja su iz škole stigla ponosna jer su sama na času likovnog odgoja mami napravila čestitku za Osmi mart, dan majki. Prava majka, žena, domaćica će od pileta sniženog s 5,55 KM na samo 4 i 45 KM napraviti i supu, ne bi li ručak bio bogatiji, a ona ekonomičnija, jer nije svaki mjesec Mjesec žene u Konzumu, već samo mart. Nakon osmomartovskog ručka, muž će još malo prileć’, dok ona opere suđe i baby vlažnim maramica, koje je umjesto za marku i 95 kupila za samo marku i 55, obriše nahranjena dječija usta, te s ponosom i u znak zahvalnosti ostavi čestitke koje su joj djeca napravila na frižider, u koji je spremila ostatke ručka za sutra, ili na televizor, koji je muž nakon ručka upalio, a na kojem se upravo prikazuje neka emisija čija je tema Osmi mart, dan majki.

Adela Jušić – Slobodni radikali
Reaction to ICTY trial judgment in the case of Vojislav Šešej
Text written for Vox Feminae online portal
April, 2016

Pustite i Ratka Mladića, molim Vas časni sude. Biljana Plavšić je lično za njega rekla da je dobar čovjek i da ju je uvijek podsjećao na Ljutka iz bajke ‘Snježana i  7 patuljaka’, a njoj valjda vjerujete na riječ, jer ona je istinoljubiva i iskrena. Pa ona je jedina priznala svoje zločine. Njoj ste dali čak 11 godina u švedskom zatvoru sa 5 zvjezdica i pustili ste je nakon samo 8, radi dobrog vladanja.

Doktorica Plavšić bi stavila ruku u vatru za doktora Šešelja. Odriješite kesu i dajte Šešelju 15 miliona dolara odštete koliko vam jetražio kao kompenzaciju za nanešenu bol tokom godina suđenja, za narušeno zdravlje, za povišen holesterol. Dajte mu. Nek mu se nađe! Dajte mu da finansira ovogodišnju kampanju svoje Srpske radikalne stranke. Dajte mu novac da upiše postdoktorske studije, jer on je onomad bio najmlađi doktor u SFRJ, a tema njegove disertacije Politička suština militarizma i fašizma sad, nakon iskustva na Vašem sudu, ima potencijal da se lijepo razvija.

Matthew Webber – Don’t Mention the War
Online article, 2015
Read full article in English HERE

Adela Jušić, perhaps the most successful artist of the new generation, made her name with an intensely personal video work entitled The Sniper (2007). The piece directly addresses the death of her father, who was a sniper himself until killed in December 1992. Are these young women legitimately reacting to personal loss and political provocation, or capitalising on Bosnia’s trauma? Does such work lock Bosnia in past, continually revisiting the same painful memories? Shouldn’t they ‘move on’, already?


Kostas Stasinopoulos – AWARE
Exhibition catalog
2014

Jušić repetitively draws a red mark, reminiscent of children’s drawings, yet goes beyond personal traumatic circumstances in a deathly identification with the aggressor, repeatedly counting his victims. She explores the danger of “yield[ing] to the compulsion to repeat, which [can] replace the impulsion to remember”.5 The counting and listing of war casualties become prominent and Jušić turns our attention to the uniformity of loss beyond ethnic, religious and sociopolitical issues.

Jušićeva Ride the Recoil – instalacija slike i sounda – s jedne strane se putem video igrica bavi slijedom stvarnih zbivanja. Nevjerovatno “kuliranje” protagonista ispred nas djeluje kao formalna transformacija a istovremeno i kao odraz nemilosrdnih ratnih mehanizama. S druge strane posebnu zaoštrenost rad doživljava uvodom druge medijalne razine: figure za igru i stvarne figure, kao što su likovi snajperiste i djevojčice, izmjenjuju se da bi prekrili različite stupnjeve stvarnosti. Na ovaj način se predočava brutalnost prisjećanog i recepcija dvaju formata realnosti, kako onog fotografije tako i po uzoru izgrađenog mjesta radnje (…) Werner Fenz

Ride the Recoil von Adela Jušić – eine Bild- und Soundinstallation – setzt sich auf der einen Seite über ein Video Game mit den Abfolgen des realen Geschehens auseinander. Die unglaubliche „coolness“ der Protagonisten steht als formale Transformation und zugleich als Abbild der schonungslosen Kriegsmechanismen vor uns. Die besondere Zuspitzung erfährt die Arbeit auf der zweiten Seite durch die Einführung einer zweiten medialen Ebene: Die Spielfiguren und die realen, etwa in der Person des Snipers und des Mädchens, wechseln einander ab, um die unterschiedlichen Wirklichkeitsgrade zu überlagern. Auf diese Weise wird die Brutalität des Erinnerten und die Rezeption zweier Realitätsformate, der Fotos wie des nachgebauten Handlungsraums, vor Augen geführt. Werner Fenz

Jonathan Blackwood – No One Belongs Here More Than You Do
Online text, 2013

Adela Jušić‘s Ride the Recoil sound installation is perhaps the best sited work in the whole exhibition. For over a year now, the artist has been working up a research and criticism of the video game Sniper : Ghost Warrior 2, which is set in Sarajevo. Relating programmatically to her earlier work The Sniper, this piece moves beyond the deeply personal narrative of that video piece, towards a critique of those who would concrete over such memories with commodified falsehoods. In a cold, bare, abandoned side room, its windows with a claustrophobic view of a tight courtyard, this is an incredibly powerful work.

Louise O’Hare – Manifesta 8 and the Problems of Sincerity

Synced footage of Jusic, projected against opposing walls, showed her reading instructions on how to write a convincing artist’s statement: her imperious, Eastern European-inflected voice firm and persistent, each iteration of herself concurring with the other and adding to the demands of this apparently innocuous piece of career advice. This work – an aspect of an exhibition, a part of a biennial, a response by a collective to the aims of an umbrella organisation, which is itself within a network of supporting partners – is a good place to begin upon the questions raised by Manifesta 8, addressing as it does the authenticity or sincerity of the artistic persona and the limits of artistic freedom.

Women took a full part in the military battles of the “National Liberation War”, in the full belief that emancipation did not just consist of ending the Axis occupation of Yugoslavia, but also in the belief that, in a post-war utopia, opportunities for education, training, work and liberation from patriarchy and gendered domestic roles would also be forthcoming.  The reality- a re-enforcement of patriarchal values in peacetime- is made all the more bitter by these images.
