A site-specific installation that showcases the three films of Jasmina Cibic's Nada (Hope) trilogy. The artist has devised chambers where specific architectural components are reconfigured. These include design fragments drawn from Yugoslavia's unique synthesis of modernist architecture, art and design. Corridors, curtains and murals here become theatrical devices which guide the viewer through the exhibition. Bridging the installation are three films examining three architects and the role their work played in forming national representation in decisive moments of European history: Mies van der Rohe and his trade fair designs for Germany in the 1920s; Vjenceslav Richter’s Yugoslav Pavilion for the 1958 Brussels EXPO; and Arne Jacobsen’s Aarhus Town Hall finished during the Nazi occupation of Denmark.
