Maja Bajevic: Power, Governance, Labor
This publication on the French-Bosnian artist Maja Bajevic (b. 1967, Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina) accompanies her comprehensive exhibition at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and focuses on her most recent bodies of works. Since the mid-1990s she has explored a wide variety of issues related to globalization and migration, inclusion and exclusion, exploitation, neoliberalism, and the interactions between these notions. Bajevic also consistently investigates her own identity, and the meaning of “home” and what this constitutes. Her oeuvre is part of a tradition in art that deals with social and educational issues, and that wants to shake up the prevailing social consciousness. By bringing together the core of Bajevic’s oeuvre with essays by art historians and curators, this publication reflects on her main artistic strategies and themes, standing as a reference monograph covering the last ten years of her work. The book is divided into three chapters: “Power,” “Governance,” and “Labor,” and includes essays by Barbara Biedermann, Manuel Borja-Villel, Boris Buden, Raphael Gygax, and Ana Janevski.
