Danilo Milovanović: Razsrediščenje (Defocalization) – Case No. 5

Art Critics' Choice – Series of Displays
In cooperation with the Slovenian Association of Art Critics
Critic: Dušan Dovč

Danilo Milovanović's artistic practice takes shape in public space, a space approached with engagement and methodologically streamlined working process. The artist has introduced an interest in urban and social issues to visual art. His Razsrediščenje (Defocalization, 2021–2022) series examines fragments of street furniture first in a city centre, and next in residential areas. The exhibition includes two works from the series that establish a visual and reflexive dialogue between historic buildings in an urban centre and modernist residential areas in the suburbs. Through public action and documentary installation, Danilo Milovanović highlights new relationships between signage in a city centre and the suburbs. With a critical and humorous gesture, Milovanović also depicts the many initiatives to preserve the city as a socio-morphological locality for an engaged community. 

Danilo Milovanović (1992) completed his postgraduate studies in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana. In 2020 he received the Student Prešeren Award for his master's thesis. He pursued further studies at the UMPRUM Academy in Prague. His creative practice is devoted to reflecting on the public space and the relationships among its users. He uses a variety of creative approaches and media in his conceptual and street projects, from public action and intervention to photography, video, graphic art and collage. As an artist, he has always been part of a community, assuming various roles, from creator, activist and performer to curator and exhibition and festival director. Today he is based at the Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone in Ljubljana. 


Dušan Dovč (1973) is a curator and programme coordinator at the MGLC Švicarija, an international residency centre for production and creativity, which operates as part of the International Centre of Graphic Arts. He teaches at the School of Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing, Svet umetnosti, run by SCCA-Ljubljana. In the field of visual art, he is interested in projects that establish links between images and words.

The artworks of Danilo Milovanović, which are currently on view at Cankarjev dom, formed part of the Razsrediščenje (Defocalization) exhibition held at the Tobačna 001 Cultural Centre in 2021.
