VCS is post-curatorial formation consisting of Senka Latinović and Vladimir Bjeličić. Based on active criticism strategy, VCS aims to rethink curatorial practice in the sense of class, gender, ethical and aesthetical guidelines within the local context, as well as global. The phenomenon of professional (un) sustainability or the inability to establish a symbolic and real capital in the art system of a transitional society is the starting premise of VCS’s work. Using performative methods of appropriation, manipulation, and humour, the duo is realized as a virtual entity, and through different models of social behaviour, it reflects the schizophrenics of the moment in which we live.
