Inventory number: 7386

Title: Star in the Palm on My Hand

Date: 1980

Medium: Vintage silver prints

Image size: 10½ in (26.7 cm) high by 19¾ in (50.2 cm) wide

Description: Composite of six vintage silver prints. Signed and titled in pencil on the mount.

Illustrated: Marijan Molnar: Akcije i ambijenti, 2002, p. 34 (variant).

Notes: In his art, including installation, video, photography, and public actions, Marijan Molnar has probed personal identity and the relationship between art and politics. Between 1979 and 1983, when Croatia was still part of communist Yugoslavia, Molnar carried out one of his best known projects which he called For the Democratization of Art. Star in the Palm of My Hand confronts the same theme of artistic freedom. The hand painted with the red star, a potent symbol of communist ideology, rests on a book dryly entitled Yugoslavia: Geographic Overview, as well as on a woman’s abdomen and other backdrops.
