NAME Readymade

Performative Presentation

Art Laboratory Berlin is glad to invite you to NAME Readymade, the 
performative presenta-tion of Janez Jansa. The event will present the 
act of "name changing" perpetrated by three Slovenian artists who in 
2007 officially, with all the required papers and stamps, changed 
their names to the then prime minister of Slovenia , Janez Jansa 
(2004-08). All Janez Jansas' works, their private and public affairs, 
in a word their whole life, has been conducted under this name ever 

Janez Jansa will take you through a series of artistic, political, 
administrative and mediatic actions performed by himself together 
with Janez Jansa and Janez Jansa, with a particular focus on their 
latest personal exhibition entitled /NAME Readymade/. Works exhibited 
in this show (valid ID cards, passports, credit and bank cards, 
driving licences, birth and marriage certificates, and so on) were 
generated by reality itself.

This event will take place in the context of the ongoing exhibtion
