Hana Miletić Materials
In one of his courses at the Collège de France in the 1970s Roland Barthes introduced the metaphor of unthreading for the act of describing. His aim was to consider the nature of translation from material into language. – Joke Robaard
Beursschouwburg and Bâtard Festival join forces for an exhibition by Hana Miletić. She is an artist who charts the traces of political changes at both the individual and the collective levels. She calls herself a street photographer, employing photography as a medium with which to orient herself in a continuous investigation into social realities. Her works include of performances, installations, workshops, printed matter and more.
This exhibition is centred around her weaving practice. It is a practice that once again allows her to connect with a craft that the women in her family have been engaging in for many decades. With weaving, Hana takes time to engage with the social interweavings all around us.
Hana Miletić reveals these social interweavings in two ways: by exhibiting her new, woven textile works, and by putting together a programme with workshops, lectures, performances and screenings. For this programme, she has invited artists and collectives that work cooperatively within a feminist tradition, including a DJ workshop for women and a Wikipedia edit-a-thon.
Opening Friday september 16th at 7pm
