Mak Hubjer is a Bosnian-Herzegovinian visual artist and artist of social practice. While diverse in its form, his visual and performative practice explores the relationships between public space, memory, and monuments, prone to questioning the phenomenology of socio-political relations. Encouraged by the urban setting, he creates or intervene in public spaces, searching for ways in which the relationships between monuments, public spaces, and (collective) memory can be(come) deconstructed, revealed, or even revived. Although pursuing notions that are generally and widely familiar and recognizable, his practice is often inspired by and rooted in my most immediate surroundings. During the most recent years, drawing inspiration from the current community, Mak Hubjer has sought to put forth claims of competing memories that exist on the territories of other societies. While remaining conscious that the links between identity and monuments are by definition borders – not only socio-political but also cultural and semiotic – and that these links refer to imaginary spaces that vary between each community with a claim to them, he decided to propose alternative artistic approaches to reveal the tensions that are the basis, not only of certain historical narratives disseminated by way of art throughout the urban fabric, but also of its multiple and unpredictable processes of distortion, reinterpretation, and erasure.
