The scenario of the map: Discovering documents and performance in East Art Map project by IRWIN
“History is not given. Please help to construct it.” Shortly after the turn of the millennium, this speech act performed the onset of the East Art Map project by the Slovenian artist collective IRWIN. Instead of just documenting the realities of (art) history, the project also set out to construct them anew by deconstructing binary configurations, such as West and East, being inside or outside the map(s), as well as by investigating the preconditions for producing art and (art) history. By offering a constellation of artistic documents – respectively, documentary artifacts – EAM explored a specific “scenario of discovery”, yet also aimed at subverting and reversing its hegemonic strategies.
