SYNOPSIS
Hodošček made the video in collaboration with six members of school debate club. In the school year 2013/2014 the members participated in a sort of parallel curricula initiated by the artist. The departure point of the debate was the legacy and potentiality of the Non-Aligned Movement (First NAM conference in Belgrade, 1961). Pupils engaged themselves into a thought process where they reflected upon the idea of the third politics today, new forms of communism and their own role within family, institutional and social structure. The artist, however, was interested in the transitional moment from the act of speaking to a moment of collective being and working together. The pupils, very well drifted in their role as debaters, in this work transform into poets. The video documents a process of writing a collective poem that expresses their mutual concerns. However, the moment of being and doing things together is a complicated process, since individual voices have to be in sync with the overall interest of the group. The video exposes moments of the mutual effort of creation, disagreement or points of negotiation. (Source: Maja Hodošček)

NOTE: On the artist's request, the full video is not published on-line; it is kept and on view only in the DIVA Station Mediatheque at Metelkova 6, Ljubljana.
