(Un)Finished House: The Monument

On 6th of July at 15h, at Bau­haus Eins, the pro­ject by Saša Tatić, (Un)Finished House: The Monu­ment, will be pre­sen­ted and dis­cus­sed as a part of Mas­ter The­sis Defense from the MFA Pro­gram Public Art and New Artis­tic Stra­te­gies, Bau­haus Uni­ver­sity Weimar.

The artis­tic rese­arch is based on the phe­no­me­non of unfi­nis­hed hou­ses from the ter­ri­tory of for­mer Yugo­sla­via. The self-built hou­ses in which peo­ple live despite lea­ving them in an unfi­nis­hed con­di­tion for deca­des reflect life con­di­ti­ons from this area but as well an unbeata­ble desire for pro­gress and hope for bet­ter future.

The con­cept of pro­clai­ming family house, a repre­sen­ta­tive object of locally uni­fied appearance for a state monu­ment, makes the phe­no­me­non offi­ci­ally reco­gni­zed as an adopted con­s­truc­tional man­ner unin­ten­tio­nally con­sti­tu­ted by adap­ting to given conditions.

On 16th of June, an appli­ca­tion has been sent to the Com­mis­sion to Pre­serve Natio­nal Monu­ments with a sug­ges­tion to pro­claim my family house as a monument.
