Barging into the Collective Body of Image - Radmila Iva Janković PDF Stampa E-mail

The wish to live, to live differently from the way we are forced to live in our everyday existence, to discover different kinds of wishes, is one of the more elegant definitions of art that exists on the margins of politics. The Italian artist, writer and videographer Agnese Trocchi in the MaMa net.culture club, Zagreb, presented one of such possible alternative worlds to us.
