As Soon as I Open My Eyes I See a Film
Dusan Makavejev, Misterija organizma, 1971
Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw cordially invites you to the promotional meeting of our latest book “As Soon as I Open My Eyes I See a Film. Experiment in the Art of Yugoslavia in the 1960s and 1970s”, inspired by the first exhibition organized by the MoMA Warsaw. It’s a journey to a country which has ceased to exist, but which gave rise to the most important art myth in our part of Europe—the myth of radical art.
The exhibition “As Soon as I Open My Eyes I See a Film” was the first event curated in MoMA Warsaw by Ana Janevski three years ago, the book crowns this period and gives the opportunity to meet Ana, who is editor of the book, before she leaves Warsaw for New York in July 2011.
The presentation of the book is accompanied by the screening of short amateur films from Yugoslav cine-clubs and the examples of Yugoslav “Black Wave Cinema”. The program entitled “We cannot promise to do more than experiment” includes films by Dušan Makavejev, Karpo Godina, Želimir Žilnik, Sanja Iveković.
