Metelkova revived!

Have you ever attended an auction of artworks? Serious faces, tightly-tied ties, bourgeois interiors, predictable scenario of the event. Metelkova has created its own version of painting and sculpture marketing, besides the traditional function, also including the added Metelkova value. Just imagine people from all walks of life (serious collectors, Metalkova goers, journalists, rubberneckers, winners of the system’s transformation, with fat wallets etc.) inside a damaged building and a hyperactive auctioneer, whose appearance is actually a noisy performance: long before stand-up comedy was given its name, the Auction of Artistic Artefacts had had its loyal fans.

The main actor – Goran Medjugorac – Gogi – became a cult personality for his improvised inserts, witty comments, and unique characteristics of Metelkova artists. At the 20th Anniversary we will hear once more his legendary for a farthing you can get… And the bizarre meeting of underground art and serious business will continue.You are cordially invited to the opening of the documentary exhibition: Metelkova revived! part of the 20th Anniversary of ACC Metelkova and other events in the exhibit – research project The End Stop (run by Alkatraz Gallery and SCCA – Ljubljana) and other events of the 20th Anniversary of ACC Metelkova. Sebastian Krawczyk, Simona Žvanut
