Zdenka Badovinac: My Post-Catastrophic Glossary

 

An experimental essay and collaboration with the artist Nika von Ham, published as the last chapter of Zdenka Badovinac’s Comradeship: Curating, Art, and Politics in Post-Socialist Europe, “My Post-Catastrophic Glossary” is written as a semi-fictional glossary.

Watch Zdenka Badovinac revisit this essay in conversation with writers and art historians Carlos Kong and Yin Ho, who were core participants of the Comradeship Reading Group, a year-long program to discuss and looking closely at Badovinac’s publication, Comradeship. The three talk about the genesis and format of the glossary, how the concepts of catastrophe influenced Badovinac’s work as a museum director, the future of museums, and importantly, how to become true comrades. Originally screened on Monday, June 29, 2020.
