Signs of a time

       |  detail

I'll start with the dilemma about the terminology: is it artist statement about his own work or workers statement about his work or cultural workers statement about his own work? Choosing one of these options is a matter of identification or positioning. Considering my own activities so far, I have a tendency to be identified with the last one. "Cultural worker" because to be an artist, in precarious modes of cultural production, seems as almost impossible goal to reach, or at least, as imprecise description of my activities. "Work" as a moment of disciplinary hybridisation in my case hybridisation of cultural anthropology and new media art practices through different projects and collaborations within the frame of so-called independent cultural scene. Positions are changing from project to project and almost from month to month: artist, ethnographer, theoretician, TV journalist. Works that I present here are selected as examples of projects in which I tried to combine these different approaches in different types of media and formats under the paradigm of citizen-artist and/ or citizen-scientist.
