Zdenka Badovinac: Avtentični interes

Book presentation
The book Avtentični interes (Authentic interest) addresses the issue of curatorship and instigates contemporary (visual) art debates. The author, Zdenka Badovinac, director of the Modern gallery, establishes the idea of ‘authentic interest’ as a way of engagement of the contemporary art institution, which, in reference to reminiscences in the context of a post-fordean, globalized world, retains a certain loyalty to the difference it makes locally, and tries, with the disapproval of the mechanisms of economic or political power, to enable its equal dialogue with the world.
