The internationally active artist group Škart aims to provoke, asking us to take responsibility for ourselves and for others. At the invitation of PLATFORM, Škart are coming to Munich and will create an expansive environment that takes over the exhibition space at PLATFORM. The ‘walk-a-plants’, poetic slogans, banners and wheelbarrow armchairs that they combine in their installation will provide the spatial and thematic framework for the PLATFORM program until the end of June 2016. The installation revolves around the question of what impulse design can bring to the process of societal change.
Škart made its name on the international stage through the design of the Serbian pavilion at the 2010 Architecture Biennale in Venice. Since 1990 Dragan Protić and Djordje Balmazović have worked as Škart (English. ‘scrap’, ‘rejects’; German: ‘Ausschuss’, ‘Rest’) in several collectives and projects at the interface of design, journalism, poetry, music and social engagement. Their complex/multilayered artistic practice engages with the political and social dimensions of society.
Škart’s work has been presented worldwide in both group and solo-exhibitions, including at the OFF Biennale Venice; Manifesta Ljubljana; the NGBK – Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst, Berlin; Flipside, New York and the Kunsthalle Fridericianum. The collective has also been the recipient of a number of international prizes and awards.
