Maja Bajevic
Power, Governance, Labor

20.05. to 13.08. 2017

In a large overview exhibition, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst presents the oeuvre of French-Bosnian artist Maja Bajevic (b. 1967 in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina). This exhibition concentrates on her works from the last ten years, supplemented by new pieces, which were produced for this exhibition. Since the mid-1990s, the artist has worked on a very wide range of different issues, encompassing globalisation, inclusion/exclusion, exploitation, neo-liberalism and their reciprocal effects. At the same time, Bajevic also repeatedly raises the issue of personal identity and homeland, and how these are constituted or “made impossible”. The presentation at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst demonstrates Bajevic’s ongoing work on themes like the abuse of power and religion, migration and marginalisation of the foreign, and the tension between local and global, while also positioning her oeuvre within the tradition of art that performs a social, informative function and focuses on changing prevalent convictions.
