About

Doplgenger is an artist duo Isidora Ilić and Boško Prostran from Belgrade (ex-Yugoslavia). Doplgenger engages as a film/video artist, researcher, writer and curator. 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 expanded cinema forms. Although their main media is moving image, their 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 shown internationally at institutions such are the Museum Wiesbaden, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Osage Gallery in Hong Kong, Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. Films of Doplgenger have been screened and selected for the film festivals like International Film Festival Rotterdam, Seattle International Film Festival, Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival, Cairo Video Festival, Festival des cinémas différents et expérimentaux de Paris, VIDEOEX in Zurich, VIDEFORMES in Clermont-Ferrand, Festival Images Contre Nature in Marseill, among others.

Doplgenger is the recipient of prestigious Serbian Politika Award for the best exhibition in 2015.
