Fiskultura exercise plan

Fiskultura exercise plan is a performance video from 2007, based on illustrated fiskultura booklets dating from late 1940s/1950s Yugoslavia. These provided a corporeal text through which ways of ‘performing an archive’ (q. Rebecca Schneider) is being explored. The video echoes the didactic function of these booklets: to be concise explanations with no aesthetic pretensions of a spectacle. The movements are economical; the titles are utilitarian – words explaining the action that is about to happen. The performer is merely a sign - a body - as anonymous as the illustrations that this video is inspired by.
