KONTEJNER | Curatorial Perspectives on the Body, Science and Technology

book

editors: Ivana Bago, Olga Majcen Linn, Sunčica Ostoić

On 240 pages, the book sums up the ten-year long activities of the curatorial collective KONTEJNER | bureau of contemporary art praxis, including a generously illustrated catalogue documenting the exhibitions, festivals and artists’ projects. The relations between art, design, body, science and technology in the context of KONTEJNER's work are discussed in texts by Lois Keidan, Kontejner, Jurij Krpan, Davor Mišković, Maroje Mrduljaš, Stahl Stenslie, Miško Šuvaković. The book closes with a glossary that reaches beyond the specificities of projects presented, but is rather aimed to be a reference point for all interested in the intersections of art, body, science and technologies.
