5 Questions with Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez

In this 5 Questions interview, curator and writer Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez wants us to look at art history from both sides—the canonical and the traditionally "uncanonical" or those areas and things outside the accepted parameters of a "Western" art history. She cites the Non-Alignment Movement and self-historicization as two topics in need of greater study within the context of Central and Eastern Europe, inclusive of the former Yugoslavia. Most of all, she stresses the importance of a foundation when approaching art of a specific region. Objects belong to specific contexts, and it is our responsibility to not only be aware of but engage with those contexts in meaningful ways.
