Michael Najjar on display at the Belgrade museum

tmpimageup_fNl5el

The Museum Of Contemporary Art Belgrade (MOCAB) presents the exhibition OVERVIEW EFFECT. The term overview effect was coined by Frank White in the book with the same title in 1987 to describe the cognitive shift reported by a number of astronauts having looked back from space to their home planet. Do we need such a distant point of view on our “Spaceship Earth” – to use Buckminster Fuller’s metaphor – to realize that this “spaceship” is slowly running out of “fuel” and that the crew is in need for “oxygen”? Michael Najjar participates at the exhibition with 3 large scale artworks from the “outer space” series.
The exhibition seeks to explore the complexity of the ecological problematics and the inseparable links between them. The concept focuses on topics such as corporate imperialism, indigenous sovereignty, gender, different kinds of extractivisms and the importance of decolonising not just history but also our concept of nature in order to create a new mindset facing the challenges of  a post anthropocentric world.
