BURN BY STAYING COOL is the title of a solo exhibition by the internationally acclaimed Bosnian artist Šejla Kamerić. The show brings together for the first time a number of recent large-format artistic installations as well as works and interventions developed on-site in the rooms of the former robotron-canteen. An artistic dialogue has been developed with the building and the layers of past, present and future embedded here.
Šejla Kamerić’s artworks address burning issues about human existence, consumer culture, mass migration, war and the preservation of vital resources. Touching on a variety of contexts, including the fashion industry, the artist makes visible the sharp contours of a present characterised by disproportionate rises in consumption and waste caused by a privileged fraction of our global citizenship, starkly contrasted with existential threats to our planetary survival and the many facing resource scarcity.
We are looking forward to your visit and the encounter with you!
