The Bring In Take Out – Living Archive (LA)
Interactive Contemporary Art Exhibition
27. – 30. September 2012, Sarajevo
Sarajevo University Campus

The Bring In Take Out Living Archive (LA) creates an interactive public space consisting of a contemporary art exhibition, laboratory and archive. It is a space of a loud feminist articulation out of which it is possible to reflect, rework and emancipate one’s and our own position. The Living Archive “as an open space, means and creates both dislocation and new location, visibility and presence of the invisible, possibility and freedom of experimentation, enabling thereby politicization of space and time” (Biljana Kašić: Thinking Living Archive; “Archiving” the Thoughts or Feminism or? Bring In Take Out Ljubljana Edition, 2012).

Starting from the 1st edition in Zagreb – which focused on relational politics between feminism, contemporary art and the (post)Yugoslav space – through the 2nd edition in Ljubljana – motivated by the feminist strategies of creating and processing an archive as the living knowledge of everyday life – the 3rd edition in Sarajevo continues to move towards feminist articulation of public space within the common field of art, theory and practice.

With the Sarajevo LA edition, Red Min(e)d wants to challenge the meaning of commons through the process of reflecting, exploring and building such a space by architectural, artistic and curatorial means. Grounded in Silvia Federici’s* feminist statement on the politics of the commons, where she concludes that “this time, however, it is women who must build the new commons so that they do not remain transient spaces, temporary autonomous zones, but become the foundation of new forms of social reproduction,” LA opens up a counter-power space (forum) for thinking and discussing common strategies for an emancipatory process of social re/production by means of experimental and collaborative work. Focusing on emerging feminist questions through an interactive contemporary art exhibition, the LA continues to problematize and process a socially transformative archive as a discursive crossroad of art, theory and practice. In Sarajevo, through a collaborative work of LA initiators – Red Min(e)d, architects and artists, students, volunteers, supporters and friends – we will produce a new urban space – an architectural structure and a park/playground that recycles/reuses already existing and abandoned object(s) and space. (a park, former military base, now a university campus).
