Ivan Civic works with performances, video installations, photography and design. In his works he deals with social structures, especially with boundaries within conventional contexts like family, relationships, cultural and intellectual circles. He instinctively dissassociates symbols, signs and fetish from their familiar or domestic relation in order to underline the mechanism, dynamic, contradictions and conflicts of relationships.
Each week, the series “Hier und Jetzt” presents artists who live and work in Stuttgart. In talks, performances and discussions, the series aims to exhibit different approaches in various sections and disciplines to shape the scene of young artists in Stuttgart.
Parts of the event series are initiated in cooperation with Akademie Solitude. Curators: Michael Birchall, Axel. J. Wieder.
