Autopsia is a depersonalised artistic project dealing with music, film/video and art production. It gathers authors of various professions in the realisation of multimedia projects. Its art practise began in London in the late 1970s, and continued in the 1980s in art centres of former Yugoslavia. Since 1990, Autopsia has operated from Prague.
Autopsia sends for the project a message: "It is for freedom that Coronavirus has set us free. Stand firm, then, and not let yourselves be burdened again by a joke of slavery."
Artists Respond project was started by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection. Addressing the current global pandemic, the project aims to virtually present the thoughts and attitudes of neo-avant-garde artists, their energy and the message they have for the present moment. This is the moment in which the world as we know it is on hold and the moment in which we need optimism and solidarity more than ever. We wish for the public to welcome the creative energy of these artists - artists who are ready to point out the state of things, to respond with art and creativity, as they have done in all difficult times in the past.
The most recent project of the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection with Autopsia was their solo exhibition Autopsia Archive 1979-1989, part of the Other Aspects project organised in collaboration with the City Gallery Striegl.
