Title: “Subversion to Red”
Artist: Nada Prlja
Commissioner: Mira Gakina, the director of the Museum of
Contemporary Art Skopje
Curators: Jovanka Popova, in collaboration with Tevž Logar and Artan Sadiku.
Supported by: Ministry of Culture of the Republic of North Macedonia

Nada Prlja’s project “Subversion to Red! provocatively stimulates the
search for alternative forms of art and socio-political formations, by revisiting specific concepts and societal models from the past. The interdisciplinary exhibition, in which installation and performative practices co-exist, exemplifies the Macedonian artist’s highly particular theoretical and visual approach in the world of art today. Nada Prlja’s project encourages a return to the ‘forgotten’ notions of idealism and ideology, as a form of motivation in contemporary society. It proposes a re-reading and de/re-construction of the postulates of Marxist theory and Leftist thought, in order to seek their compatibility with today’s society, by introducing subversive qualities and the playfulness of the artist’s practice, as a way of indirectly influencing reality.
