About The Exhibition
Aleksandra Domanović (Serbian, born 1981) works across a range of media to investigate how existing images and information circulate, and rearranges them in various ways to produce new meaning and content. A recurring theme in her work is the disintegration of Yugoslavia, a chapter in history that is closely tied to her own biography; Domanović was born in Novi Sad, which belonged to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia before being transformed into the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2003. Two of her videos will be on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art: Turbo Sculpture (2010–13) and 19:30 (2010/11), both of which look at the role of popular culture as socialism gave way to capitalism in the former Yugoslavia.
