Gathering with Adrijana Gvozdenović:
Arbeitsraum/Ausstellung: Who is Adrian Lister?

Adrian Lister appeared as a (mis)translation of Adrijana Gvozdenović’s name in Google Translate in 2013. What started as a joke was taken as a serious life situation, a research tool, and an art project. Inhabiting this relation as an opportunity to complicate the existing notions of identity, Who is Adrian Lister? has been developing an artistic endeavor to note, unveil, analyze, and share the different conditions for artistic activity.

The project has had several iterations over the years, always context-specific. Part of the title for this iteration is Arbeitsraum/Ausstellung (workroom/exhibition), which refers to a room at nGbK, marked as such on the floor plan and whose specificity further influenced the formation of the setting. What is this space that is both (or neither) a workroom and an exhibition space and what kind of sociality does it imply?

With this in mind, visitors are invited to join events in the Arbeitsraum /Ausstellung on two occasionsThis is a hangout invitation, a possible work session, or a study situation about living in/through translations and how this movement can create different forms of being and doing.

The gathering will start with a short guidance through the installation, after which we continue thinking as a group. Adrijana will share references, tools, and practices that were generated throughout the years she kept asking Who is Adrian Lister?,  hoping to instigate a collective exchange.

If you are interested, please come on time and be ready to devote part of your afternoon to this gathering.
