Two artistic oeuvres, the one of Ilija Bašičević Bosilj and Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos’s oeuvre are at the first glance two completely different ouvres connected only by the fact that their authors are father and son. But, many theorists sense the basis for discussing those oeuvres as the one, for art history important phenomenon, Ilija-Mangelos Phenomenon (or in some sources: “The Phenomenon of Bašičević family“).
In this exhibition we will try to approach this phenomenon in a new way, exactly at the time when both artists are receiving international acclamation.
Works presented on the exhibition will be Ilija’s works done as oil on canvas as opposition to Mangelos’s manifestos done as print on wooden boards, by which the impression of complete visual opposition of those oeuvres is caused, and at the same time, their deep similarity in the terms of content.
