WORKS AND PROJECTS

Kapital

1991

Kapital was an exhibition on which Irwin started to work in the time of the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia and which was completed after the global political changes in Yugoslavia and Eastern Europe. In five round paintings the real plaques of ex-political organisations were incorporated. An integral part of the project was the catalogue/book Kapital, published by Collaborator/Edinburgh, which initiated an international debate on East-West theme, with special emphasis on question of identity of East European art. Among the contributors were Georg Bussmann, Boris Groys and Juergen Harten.
