DENIS HARAČIĆ

MON *BERLIN EDITION 2019

The focus of the work of Denis Haracic (born,1991, Travnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is the mankind itself. Man as the creative origin of art and Man as object of art.

Denis Haracic creates intaglio printmaking works by combining both: the aquatint technique and handmade drawings resulting in archaic works of art that appear like from another, ancient time. Haracic reflects the feeling of being part of a society that is unable to be empathetic, emotionally dulled by the suffering it faces on a daily basis. 

SOLDIERS AND WITNESSES

The series of twelve works "The Soldiers" and the supplementing series of nine "The Witnesses" were both displayed at the 2019 edition of Museum of Now in Berlin. 

Both The Witnesses and The Soldiers focus on the loss of humanity. Both are at once perpetrators and victims of their environment. While The Soldiers actively cause harm through acts of destruction the Witnesses are the observing passivity that supports the status quo. In the end, however, both suffer. The Soldiers by the memory of the caused horrors and The Witnesses caused by the recognition of helplessness.
