Autopsia is depersonalized art project that deals with music and artistic production, and in the realization of a multimedia project brings together artists of different professions. Autopsia emerged within context of London’s 1970s, and through 1980s continued with its extraordinary practice in Novi Sad and the cultural centers of Yugoslavia. Since 1990 Autopsia relocated to Prague from where it works successfully worldwide in the field of sound, music publishing, concerts and monumental installations.
Was heisst Autopsia? Art? Theoria? Framing? Projection? Gaze?
Autopsia is language is image is sound.
Autopsia is a tombstone on the grave of time.
Autopsia is archeology. The discourse of the beginning and about the beginning.
At the beginning is Death.
The building materials of Autopsia are reproductions of representations. Therefore, the production which is performed by Autopsia is the production of reproductions, or, on the level of producing, Autopsia reproduces the production. In fact, Autopsia does not produce anything, in a usual sense of the word;
it does not produce something out of nothing, it does not produce the original, it repeats the production.
But here things are getting even more complicated. It is because the production of Autopsia in fact consists of the repetitions. The method of Autopsia´s production is repetition. First, the repetition of the production; second, the repetition of what is already produced; third, the repetition of the repetition as the production.
The reproduction of the production and the production of the reproduction which is repetition of the repetition might be named only with one word - disproduction. The disproduction means de-structuring of the production in the way of infinite repetition (of the Same).
