In the installation Black Communism, a line of industrial sewing machines stand frozen in action, seemingly abandoned by its workforce as a protest against the contemporary conditions of labour in our societies. The writings on the T-shirts refer to the Black Wave cinema movement in ex-Yugoslavia in the late 1960s – which was an expression of freedom under socialism, as well as a representation of ‘Communism with the possibility of self-criticism and freedom’. With this ‘Black Communism’ slogan, the artist is interested in searching for new political/social systems in relation to the afore-mentioned concept.
