Incidental Evil. Art and the Undoing of Hate in Zagreb’s Urban Space.

For a discussion on effects of the growing right-wing populism in Europe with a focus on the country where I live, I chose to appropriate a title of one art project. Incidental Evil is a title of recent research project of artist Tanja Dabo who documented, analyzed and contextualized hundreds of graffiti written or drawn on building walls in Croatian capital Zagreb. It is a matter of graffiti that contain explicit Ustashi or cryptographed Nazi symbols, as well as different expressions of hate speech. The issue of my presentation is structural patriarchal violence inseparable from nationalism, that in Croatia has been normalized since 1990, from the moment when the first free elections took place. I will talk on the examples of misogynist, racist and homophobic discourse that culminated in so called “conservative revolution” that overtly happened immediately after Croatia became a member of EU in 2013. Accordingly, most of cases of hate crimes remain legally not sanctioned. I will contextualize art projects of Tanja Dabo titled Corrected Constitution of Republic of Croatia, Collection for Remembrance and Incidental Evil with such state of affairs.

Leonida Kovač is an art historian and theorist, curator and professor at the University of Zagreb, Academy of Fine Arts. Her work focuses on contemporary art, feminist and critical theories.

Moderation: Susanne Lettow, Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin am Margherita-von-Brentano-Zentrum für Geschlechterforschung und Privatdozentin am Institut für Philosophie der Freien Universität Berlin.
