Taxi Art

An automobile is not an unusual space for confessions. A person usually feels good in it, as good as if he/she were at home. Yet a taxi is not any car. It is a carriage vehicle, creating ‘interspaces’ between personal and public, a space where different worlds encounter. Confession in the taxi, in a public mobile unit, is a metaphor for the art of Aprilija Lužar and activism in general. Personal stories are being publicly confessed here. If ‘conciliation’/ ‘reconciliation’, this specific state of the soul/mind during the confession, settled into society, every problem would be resolved. Yet the problems are still with us, and therefore Aprilija Lužar travels from place to place and with her art she sensitizes the public, women and men, to respond in such a way as to eliminate violence.
