The catalog was puplished on the occasion of the exhibition Darja Bajagić: Unlimited Hate (6.11.2016 – 9.8.2016) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.
Darja Bajagić explores laden questions of embodiment, viewership and visual power relationships – all the while interrogating our driving need to make images accountable. Heeding the lure of the fringes, the artist culls her imagery from fan-gore magazines, true crime TV shows, fetish websites, obscure online forums and hidden chatrooms tucked away in the darker reaches of the Web. She handles these disparate source materials with a dose of humor, working them into densely layered compositions that are at once confrontational and poetically fragile.
received her Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 2014. Among other things, she showed her work at Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2015), Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2014) and Museum of Applied Arts Vienna (2013).
