Zoran Poposki, Portrait of the artist as

Zoran Poposki, Portrait of the Artist as a Cultural Worker, 2010, single channel video, stereo, documentation of performance art, DVD, 24:00 minutes.

Straight from artist Zoran Poposki's living room, and co-produced by curator Goranco Gjorgievski, comes the performance in urban public space in Skopje entitled Portrait of the Artist as a Cultural Worker. In this performative tryptich (composed of the performances "Thesis", "Sweet Movie", and "Working Class Hero"), Poposki reflects on his artistic practice, thus far focused almost exclusively on public space as a place for representation and discursive action.
