The material printed in this catalogue was selected from a special number of the magazine "Duga" printed in November 1975 under the title "Tragendy of a Venus".

"When Ivekovic created Tragedy of a Venus in 1975, the twenty-six-year-old artist really was a long way from glory and popularity. Born in Croatia, which still belonged to the nonaligned Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia under the leadership of Josip Broz Tito, the artist had to wait many years to achieve recognition in the West. A first step came with Ivekovic's appearance, alongside Valie Export, Isa Genzken, and Cindy Sherman, in "Kunst mit Eigen-Sinn" (Art with Attitude) at the Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna in 1985. Greater renown followed with Ivekovic's participation in the second Manifesta in Luxembourg in 1998 and in Documenta 11 in Kassel in 2002 - where she showed, among other works, her powerful video Osobni rezovi (Personal Cuts), 1982. Since 2000, Ivekovic has been featured in solo museum shows in Cologne and Barcelona as well as in Innsbruck, Austria, and Göteborg, Sweden, and this summer bak and the Van Abbemuseum collaboratively took on the task of comprehensively presenting her work to counteract her relative obscurity in the Netherlands. In so doing, the two institutions underlined Ivekovic's importance to European art over the past forty years." (mutualart.com)

Sanja Ivekovic was born in 1949 in Zagreb, Croatia, where she studied from 1968 to 1971 at the Academy of Fine Arts. As one of the first explicitly feminist artists in Croatia she has also been the facilitator and founder of a large number of political initiatives including the Women Artists’ Center Elektra and the Center for Women’s Studies in Zagreb. Her works have repeatedly won prizes at film and video festivals, including those in Locarno and Montreal. Sanja Ivekovic lives in Zagreb.
