Janez Janša®

ByDomenico Quaranta

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
COLOR VERSION // In 2007, three Slovenian artists joined the conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and officially changed their names to Janez Janša. While they renamed themselves for personal reasons, the boundaries between their lives and their art began to blur in numerous and unforeseen ways. The catalogue of Janez Janša® – the anthological exhibition curated by Domenico Quaranta and presented in 2017 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (+MSUM) in Ljubljana – presents a comprehensive selection of works and projects produced by Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša over the last ten years – most of them arising as collateral effects of the name change or other life events related to it. The publication raises some universal questions about identity in the age of biopolitics and about art in the age of information, and it casts the Janšas’ story into the future by announcing the registration of the Janez Janša name as a trademark for the next ten years.
