Sanja Ivekovic (b1949, studied, still lives Zagreb, Croatia)
Quotes from the artist from an Interview from 2009 on youtube:
"One of the advantages of growing up in socialism is, from very early on, you learn that:
- Nothing is free from ideology
- Everything we do has a political charge
- How to not be a passive object, how to act meaningfully
- What is my relationship to power/ domination/ exploitation
- The distinction between the aesthetic and the political is completely erroneous"
