Casual Passerby I Met at 1.15 pm, 4.23 pm, 6.11 pm, Zagreb by Braco Dimitrijević
by sabine7 / April 27, 2011


During the 1970s, Braco Dimitrijevic created his Casual Passerby Series by displaying huge photographs of anonymous people in prominent positions throughout urban centres around the world. He also used such images to picket, along with creating monuments and mounting plaques in honour of more such nameless citizens. This instigator of artistic interventions was behind the term Transemorials, "used to describe the practice of shifting the meaning of monuments, large public portraitures and memorial plaques." A comprehensive survey of Dimitrijevic's work runs through April at White Box in New York.
