Translacija | Traslación (Tatiana Kocmur & Francisco Tomsich)

Translacija | Traslación’s Rdeče niti [Red Threads] is a model of artistic research on performance art histories focused on how individuals and groups remember, articulate and tell stories about what happened at a particular performance art event from the past. The forthcoming presentation and exhibition will show the preliminary results of the study of TV Dražba [TV Auction] (2003), a performance artwork by Martina Bastarda.

Translacija | Traslación is a platform for production, exhibition and research on performance art created by artists Tatiana Kocmur and Francisco Tomsich.
