A group of performers attempts to reconstruct the Pavilion of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia built for the 1929 Barcelona EXPO. Piecing together fragments of its design based on disappeared and lacking archives, a voice-over describes the methodology of gap-filling from other architectural solutions of modernist political visions of desire, which shared the emblematic design of the Yugoslav Pavilion. By colliding them, The Pavilion points to the universal and timeless optics of authoritarian construction of soft power mechanisms.

Jasmina Cibic (b.1979 Ljubljana) represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennial with her project For Our Economy and Culture. Her recent exhibitions include solo shows at BALTIC Gateshead, Museum Haus Esters – Krefeld, Aarhus 2017, MSU Zagreb, MSU Belgrade, MGLC Ljubljana and Ludwig Museum Budapest and group presentations at Esker Foundation Calgary, Hessel Museum New York, La Panacee Montpellier, City Gallery Wellington, MSUM Ljubljana, MNHA Luxembourg, Joanneum Museum Graz and California College of the Arts. Cibic’s films have recently been screened at Pula Film Festival, HKW Berlin, CCA Laznia, Les Rencontres Internationales Paris; Dokfest Kassel and Copenhagen International Documentary Festival.
