This web interactive from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) presents selections from the first U.S. retrospective of Sanja Ivekovi's work. As a feminist, activist, and video and performance artist, Ivekovi (born in 1949 in Zagreb, Croatia) engages with a range of subjects: the "sweet violence" of media seduction in the 1970s that gives the show its name; the transformation from communist to post-communist political systems in East Central Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989; the disregard for women's rights that continues today, "both in transitional societies and in democracies that pretend otherwise." The show at MoMA is huge - the illustrated exhibition checklist is 25 pages. Visitors to the website can click on individual works to open up a representation of each piece. For example, Sweet Violence is a six minute, black and white video, created in 1974 - there are two stills from it on the site. Paper Women is a series of twelve altered magazine advertisements - torn apart, cut into pieces, scratched, or perforated - of which four are available online.
