Dragan Živadinov, one of the most important figures of the Slovenian art scene during the 80’s, has abruptly and unexpectedly interrupted his decades-long radical experiments with projects in zero-gravity state and "encapsulation" of the art opuses of his deceased actors into satellites to be launched into space, and has landed firmly onto the ground. What led him to that decision was a powerful and unmistakable realization that the world faces only one relevant topic today: the rise of Nazism (or whichever euphemistic term might be applied to the right-wing populism and extremism, xenophobia, non-liberal democracies and other phenomena evident nowadays). That is how the performance Odilo. Obscuration. Oratorio. was created, warning us about those very things by pointing at their forerunners (or analogies) from the past. Specifically, at Odilo Globočnik: a Slovenian who was one of Hitler’s closest confidants, a man completely forgotten in Slovenia today. Through a spectacular ritual, which is a plausible reconstruction of Nazi political rallies from the 30’s but which is also a stylized and ironical play with that iconography in the spirit of the Neue Slowenische Kunst movement from the 80’s, Živadinov is performing an ideologically unequivocal exorcism. He is thoroughly cleansing us of the Globočnik’s spirit to prevent it from rising back again. Since it refers to the past in two ways – to the times of Nazism and to the artistic movement NSK, which has its place in the history of Bitef – this project proves to be ideal for the Prologue Day.
