The Work of Slobodan Manojlovic, strongly warns us about spiritual desert that extends and grow around us… The new reality is a set of pictures, which are an exponent of the power of capital, and occupying spaces of the media and the whole of our environment creates an impression which is more real than reality itself … Such a reality that determines our behavior, dreams, aspirations, expectations, is the reality of the spectacle.
This is precisely one central paradigm of Manojlovic work … He percieves that the symbols, images, and other forms of modern communication, mainly oriented towards promoting that Debor (Deborg) called the The Society of the Spectacle, and that dilemma like and / or serving only to present a world ruled by bizarre rules …
He thus set his work in the only place of free expression of society, and the free expression of society today, it is not possible either through the state or through any institution but only through art … Slobodan Manojlovic sets himself as one of the authors, that resist the wave of lobotomy and spectacular meaninglessness and through tactics “propaganda against propaganda”, therefore, tools and language of the spectacle precisely exposes the false dilemmas and points to the basic principle of global society, which is still in the last century openly promoted by the nephew of Sigmund Freud (Freud), Edward Bernays (Bernays) and that is the manipulation.
It was translated from Serbian, so it’s even more awful due to translation errors. But it’s garbage no matter what. I don’t mean Solobdan Manojlovic. I’m referring to whoever tried to write some artsy description of this exhibition. Sadly, there’s nothing shown that actually lets us know what Slobodan actually created. From google, we can learn that he works in graphic arts and photography. I think his exhibit was photography that shows examples of people being manipulated. This is the only example I could find.
