Newsreel Tribute – Prime Time in Camps and Slon Tango
The invitation to participate in the 9th Triennial U3 exhibition at the Moderna galerija, curated by Vit Havránek, which was also a 25th anniversary of the first Triennial, prompted a reflection on the politics of exhibiting and the possibility of intervening in the museum’s existing national collection.
A Newsreel Tribute – consists of the purchase of Chris Marker’s Prime Time in Camps (1993) and Slon Tango (1993) and their donation to the existing public collection. A fragile and tiny fragment that tries to (re)write, supplements, tries to show and decisively demonstrates the possibility, potential and promise of the future and a commitment to tomorrow.
The intervention again provided context with texts published in Newsreel Shreds, contributed for this exhibition by Andrej Šprah, Nace Zavrl, Andreja Hribernik, and Nika Autor.
