The exhibition provides an insight into the “Janša case”, from 2007 until the present day, through several intertwined segments: personal documents, collaborative works and media responses. The “case” acquires the characteristics of skilfully planned smuggling, with life at stake and the aim of challenging the boundaries of politics, art and everyday life. The activities of “neo-Janšas” become a means to examine the symbolic power of name in the art system, as well as in broader social and political fields. They point to the factors that participate in creating identities of artists, i.e. work of art, while redefining the notion of authorship and property enters the zone of repression between the individual and the collective, citizen and state, art gesture and national symbol.
