Open Space through differing Eyes: Video statements by Marina Gržinic

Marina Gržinič is active in video, theoretician and a philosopher from Ljubljana, Slovenia

She has been Professor and Head of the Conceptual Art study programme at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna since 2003, and in order to propose a new possible constellation for art and theory in their relations to social and political questions, she conceptually renamed the Studio as “Post-Conceptual Art Practices”, popularly known today by its acronym “PCAP.” Gržinič proposed to engage in a process of education and artistic research through questioning the parameters of fine arts inside a wider context of art that could become a powerful social practice.

She collaborates with Aina Šmid, they made more than 40 video art projects, a short feature 16 mm film and numerous video and media installations; independently they directed several video documentaries and television productions. Gržinič and Šmid in their decades-long collaborative engagement presented and exhibited their video works and video installations in more than 100 video festivals in the World and have received several major awards for their video productions.
