There is something tenacious about the fragility with which Natalija Vujošević communicates her thoughts and emotions–insights and affects–in her referential installations. This determination is provoked by the hardly bearable mission she is conducting, and she conducts it on her own terms: the mission to contemplate banality. Instead of exposing, appropriating or laughing at banality she aims to actually and urgently contemplate it from a rather melancholic, yet critical, attitude. As Benjamin argued, it is in fact the state of ruin that materialistically exposes this remarkable conceptual combination of melancholia and critical vigour.

"I think that we are, that most Slovenians are very humble, um, that we're nice, that we know how to take care of the environment, most of us do." (Alina, 10 years old)Growing up is political; we are conditioned ideologically and affectively by the social communities that surround us. Referring to this, Dejan Kaludjerović’s art project Conversations: Hula-Hoops, Elastics, Marbles and Sand (2013–present) reminds us of the fact that childhood is not spared from political reality and political thought however much this period of life, often referred to as the age of innocence, may be devoid of social responsibility for the things that happen and will continue to happen in the future.

In his artistic practice, Dante Buu (Rožaje, Montenegro) combines photography, text, video, embroidery and performance. His works are underscored by an incessant inquiry into the increasingly blurred boundaries between the private and the public as well as between the voyeuristic and the participatory. In addition, they scrutinise traditional gender roles and associated stereotypes as well as ever more fluid identities in the digital era.
