An Interview With Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša By Alessandro Ludovico
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Artist and media critic Alessandro Ludovico interviews the three artists named Janez Janša. It’s no coincidence that they have the same name and not by chance that they share it with the... More > former Slovenian Prime minister: they deliberately and officially changed the names they’d had from birth to Janez Janša. They also joined the right-wing SDS party led by their homonymous counterpart. After that they experienced a “visible disappearance” from having canceled their previous names but simultaneously having gained huge visibility thanks to their radical gesture. Changing your name is similar to dying: it affects more people other than just you. But name-changing also raises ontological questions about identity, referentiality and, finally, about the status of a work of art. With their bureaucratic performance, the three Janez Janšas have invented two new types of readymade: the personal name, and personal identification documents. Neither of them can be sold or reproduced.< Less

Umetnik in medijski kritik Alessandro Ludovico intervjuva tri umetnike, ki se imenujejo Janez Janša. Da imajo enako ime in da je to tudi ime nekdanjega slovenskega premierja, ni... More > nikakršno naključje: imena, ki so jih dobili ob rojstvu, so namenoma in uradno zamenjali za ime Janez Janša. Včlanili so se tudi v desničarsko stranko SDS, ki jo vodi njihov soimenjak. Po tem, kot je omenjeno v intervjuju, so doživeli »vidno izginotje«, kajti hkrati s preklicem prejšnjih imen so s to radikalno gesto pritegnili tudi ogromno pozornosti. Preimenovanje je podobno smrti: bolj vpliva na druge ljudi kot nate. Toda preimenovanje odpira tudi ontološka vprašanja o identiteti, referencialnosti (povezavi med označevalcem in pomenom oziroma objektom) in končno tudi o statusu umetniškega dela. S svojim birokratskim performansom so Janezi Janše izumili dva nova tipa readymadea: osebno ime in osebni dokument. Ne enega ne drugega ni mogoče ne prodati ne reproducirati.< Less
