Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions is a platform of words where new texts are created around chosen topic and presented on and off the page
Frequently Asked Questions – the platform of words that involves all kinds of text-related formats – was conceived with one sole purpose – to create a space for analysis, thoughts and reflections and to unite people from various walks of life to prompt fresh discussions about frozen topics that need to be readdressed and reexamined; to stimulate understanding of half-way abandoned questions that have great importance for further growth and development; to search for new ideas and to raise new kinds of questions about certain themes.
2019: frequently asked questions: time

1989 1990 1991 1992
The residency will be held in Art Villa Garikula in July. Writers, journalists, artists and people with other professions will work on the selected topics individually.
In the black paper binder, there are years of 1989-2019 reduced to one sentence or, sometimes, one word.
Words collected here are our collective biography. Words found in press or television, spoken or written in different times, by different people, became years’ titles.
It was quite difficult to tell the history in one word or sentence. Difficult and even impossible.
So what are those words printed on papers?
Subjective history? Biography? Lost diary or dated calendar? Encyclopaedia with lost meanings?
This is what remains. This is what is left.
While pushing those word buttons we recall well remembered or forgotten stories.
These words are puzzles. Answers for the puzzle is history that has yet to be written.
Words and sentences describing each year are written on the floor – off the page.
