SPLAV MEDUZE seeks to understand the logic of the cannibalistic modes of survival under the laws of capitalism in the times of political disorientation, economic fundamentalism, financial despair, decrease of cultural values and ‘failure’ of historical promises.

It aims to construct a mythology and iconography of its own, based upon a long-term, inclusive and citizens-oriented “democratic” structure, where the art exhibition (September 2009) comprises only a segment of a broader attempt to create the potential for a radically different public opinion. In addition, the political endeavor of the project and its action-plan (among which a series of formal and informal discursive events preceding the exhibition /March–August 2009/, and a series of publishing and communication events following its end /October-December 2009/) revolve around the existence of insular experiences in the continuous global circuit of people, goods and signs. SPLAV MEDUZE looks for the possibility of individual freedom: of choosing one’s own perspective within a context of the conformist spectacle of institutionalized normativity and a consensus becoming progressively conservative. Escapism and resistance, non-conformism and movement, exile and engagement, sailing and longing for independence, detachment and (non-)belongingness, all contribute to the creation of a virtual and physical, digital and analogue, artistic and political experience of the SPLAV MEDUZE.
