Can you imagine few years ago 3 established American artists joining the Republican Party and then legally changing their names into George W. Bush? And since than bringing the name of the USA President at museums, exhibiting next to Robert Gober or Barbara Kruger, festivals, showing work next to Meg Stuart and Nature Theater of Oklahoma, galleries, presenting video along Bruce Nauman?
NAME Readymade is the lecture/presentation of the “Name changing” gesture perpetrated by three Slovenian artists who in 2007 officially, and with all the papers and stamps required, changed their names to the Slovenia’s economic-liberal, conservative prime minister at the time, Janez Jansa.
