Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic belongs to a young generation of artists who are engaging critically with the legacy of the former Yugoslavia. Set against this background, her exhibition Most Favored Nation questions the validity of the concept of international relationships that extends the same privileges of bilateral treaties to multilateral relationships. Cibic critically examines the mechanisms of nation-building and soft power as an indirect form of exercising power through cultural dominance. Decoding the complex entanglement of political concerns and cultural production, the London-based artist translates the political mechanisms influencing artists into room-filling installations, performances, and intricate films. This catalogue traces the immersive spatial architecture in the tradition of the debating salon.

JASMINA CIBIC (*1979, Ljubljana) is an internationally renowned artist, working with film, sculpture, performance and installation. In 2013 she represented Slovenia at the 55th Biennale di Venezia. Most recently her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Musée d’art contemporain – MAC Lyon, Museum Sztuki Łódź, Museum of Contemporary Art Ljubljana and CCA Glasgow.
