David Maljkovic

In his installations, videos, and collages, David Maljković (born in 1973) is concerned with aspects of the eventful history of his country. The far-reaching consequences of the transformation from a communist to a capitalist social form and the linked economic and cultural impacts form the subtext of his artistic production. His works often show abandoned buildings and monuments of the 1960s and 1970s, which impressively reflect the promise of a better future, while at the same time evoke failure due to their currently ruinous state, adding a melancholy touch. In taking this step, the artist consciously uses examples where the ideas of a universal, modernistic progress are linked to a specific understanding of socialism as a potentially radical, experimentally modernistic concept. The combination makes clear the exemplary outlines of his approach, which equally counts the inclusion of research, as well as the interweaving of past, future, and present.

David Maljković has participated in numerous international exhibitions. He participated at Venice Biennial 2015. Solo exhibitions include, for example at Palais de Tokyo (2014), Lokremise Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2014), BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead (2013), GAMeC, Bergamo (2013), CAC Vilnius (2013), Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven (2012), Secession Vienna (2011), Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb (2011), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2010), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2009), Istanbul Biennal (2009), Berlin Biennale (2008), London’s Whitechapel Art Gallery (2007),  Kunstverein Hamburg (2007) Artists Space New York (2007).

His work is represented in the collections of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein; mumok, Vienna; Tate Collection, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
