By: Karsten LundIrena Haiduk has sharp teeth and a killer instinct. In Spells, the Balkan artist leads the way to the sunny spot where every soul suffers infinite injustice. Spells is the first collection of Haiduk s writing, gathering texts and limited-edition publications since 2007. Her multifaceted works reach far beyond Balkan history and mingle with other corrosive forces, fueling a deep questioning of well-fed bodies of power. Moving through a wide range of formats, the intentionally strident black-and-white graphics of the book echo the disturbing content of her manifestos, music scores, forecasts, conversations, translations, architectural programs and other difficult-to-categorize works. Haiduk has exhibited at The Insitute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the University of Chicago s Renais- sance Society, and the 14th Istanbul Biennial. Her provocative voice is captured in both design and concept of this compelling monograph.
