On the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Museum of Contemporary Art
Tadej Pogačar has examined indeterminacy and transformation within social systems since 1993 when he established the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Museum of Contemporary Art. In his art practice, he engages in interventionist logic, institutional critique and critical research on social and political issues as well as participatory and collaborative projects.
The “parasitism” of his work is a subtle deconstruction of the horizon of everyday and ruthless challenges to the systems that are used to establish the center, domination and power.
Pogačar recently edited a book, "CODE:RED," on self-organization of urban minorities, informal economies and global sex work. He is the founding and managing director of the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute (established in 1998), a non-profit cultural institution that operates the P74 Centre and Gallery and the KAPSULA bookshop/project space in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Tadej Pogačar is the György Kepes research fellow at ACT for fall 2012.
