Red Discussion 2

Red Dicussion 2 is a part of the exhibition Subversion to Red which represents The Republic of North Macedonia at 58th La Biennale di Venezia

During the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, as one of the key elements of the exhibition within the Pavilion of the Republic of North MacedoniaRed Discussion 2 is organised to take place as a performative discussion including the following participants: Charles Esche, Maurizio Lazzarato, Vlad Morariu, Chantal Mouffe, Laura Raicovich and Artan Sadiku.

In general, Red Discussion is conceived as a discussion between relevant thinkers and theorists invited to analyse and critique various concepts of socialist / Marxist theory and Leftist thought. The aim is to analyse and deconstruct former societal models and ideologies (those no longer relevant to current social and political structures) and to identify and repropose aspects or specific ideas that may still be, or could become, applicable today.

The red painted pentagonal table, onto which the various ideas and key words from the discussion were written during the performative event, defines a set of key concepts and ideals that could be used as a guide for redefining contemporary society. It subsequently remained as an artwork within the exhibition space, exhibited alongside the video documenting Red Discussion 1 and other artworks of Subversion to Red.
