Portrait of the artist as a cultural worker (2010, 19’47″)

Straight from artist Zoran Poposki’s living room, and co-produced by curator Goran Gjorgievski, comes the latest performance in urban public space in Skopje, entitled “Portrait of the Artist as a Cultural Worker”.
In this performative triptych (composed of the performances “Thesis”, “Sweet Movie”, and “Working Class Hero”), Poposki reflects on his artistic practice focused on public space as a place for representation and discursive action.
