Salto Mortale

Event on 17 June 2010, 6 pm
MuseumsQuartier, Vienna

In the frame of the Artist-in-Residence programme at Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, ERSTE Foundation’s project partner tranzit regularly sends artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to Vienna. Currently, Anabela Žigová from Slovakia lives and works at MuseumsQuartier. Her video documentary examines “the legacy of silence” and the dilemma of today’s young generation of Slovaks confronting the communist past and the files of the secret police which contain references to family members or close friends, still active in cultural and political life. On 17 June Anabela Žigová will present her work at the event Salto Mortale.

Video dailies, in dialogue with historian Jerguš Sivoš in Co-Production with Nation’s Memory Institute in Bratislava.
Duration: ca 90 mins.
