Plan B: Arab nationalism is no good for Plan A, 2006
Nemanja Cvijanovic's work conceptually explores socialist histories and constantly reconsiders the relationship between economics and politics sometimes to the extent of being censored. Past works include 'Pago la luce (Satisfied Light)', 2005, a large marble tomb stone of Josip Broz Tito which also acts as a radiator and 'Here the future begins now', 2004 a series of aluminium trays with symbols of modern life such as a BMW car cut-out of them. Displayed at the Erste Bank in Rijeka, Croatia, 'Here the future begins now' raised questions about loans offered to Croatian residents to help them meet their expectations of capitalist lifestyles. The work was removed after two days by the bank because it was apparently contributing to loss of clients.
