Profiles

Doplgenger is an artist duo Isidora Ilić and Boško Prostran, film/video artists from Belgrade (ex-Yugoslavia). The work of Doplgenger deals with relation between art and politics through exploring the regimes of moving images and modes of its reception. They deconstruct the film medium, language, structure and notions of text in order to discover the ways in which art/moving images participate in creating political reality. They rely on the tradition of experimental film and video and through some of the actions of these traditions intervene on the existing media products or produce in the form of essay film. Although their main media is moving image, Doplgenger’s work is realized through the text, installations, performances, lectures and discussions. All of these media are treated in their materiality and in relation to other media, and as the carriers of meaning structures through which the social and political reality is structured.
Their work has been presented in Serbia and internationally both in group or solo exhibitions and film/video festivals: Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (Netherlands, 2015), Osage gallery (Hong Kong, 2015), Cairo Video Festival (Cairo, 2014), Festival des cinémas différents et expérimentaux de Paris (2014), 55th October Salon (Belgrade, 2014), State Abed (Gallery of Fine Arts Split, 2014), Open Systems (GPL Contemporary, Vienna 2014), Salon Video (Romania, 2013), VIDEOEX – International Experimental Film & Video Festival Zurich (2013), VIDEFORMES – Art vidéo et cultures numériques (Clermont-Ferrand, 2013), Art Biennale Pančevo (2012), Gallery ArtPoint (Vienna, 2011), TINA B. – The Prague Contemporary Art Festival (2011), Belgrade Summer Festival (BELEF, 2010), This Is Not A Gateway (London, 2009), Video in progress (Photon gallery, Ljubljana 2009), performIC (Innsbruck, 2009), Remont Gallery (Beograd, 2009), O3one Gallery (Belgrade, 2008), Alternative Film-Video Festival (Belgrade, 2008), International Belgrade Documentary & Short Film Festival (2007), etc.
