press release

'What, How & for Whom' (WHW) is a non-profit organization for visual culture and curator's collective based in Zagreb, Croatia.

Looking Awry deals with aspects of repetition, re-actualization, re-staging and re-enactments (as a form of change and a source of knowledge), in relation to both history and contemporary political investments of everyday life and popular culture. The accent is on repetitive and performative elements and re-enactments are not based on sheer automatism of repetition and appropriation, but on the potential of re-actualizing certain actions, performed with minimal and inevitable shifts. The exhibition deals with broad range of personal topics and private perspectives revealing a field of suppressed and invisible identities, indirectly touching upon problems of sex and gender, authenticity and fiction, center and margin and issues of cultural translations.
