David Maljković (Croatian, b. 1973), working in mediums from film and video to drawing and installation, confronts audiences with forgotten or “invisible” heritages, which are not perceived as valuable in the present moment. His video trilogy Scenes from a new heritage—currently on view in the homonymous exhibition of contemporary art from MoMA’s collection—is set between 2045 and 2060, showing three different moments in time and envisioning three different relationships to an abandoned socialist monument. For this Modern Monday event, Maljković premieres a new film depicting the historical and artistic heritage that influenced his work.
