Ivan Posavec (Dužica near Sisak, Croatia, 1951)

Untitled (Flag) 1983

b/w photograph

49.5 cm x 59.5 cm

Photographer Ivan Posavec, while shooting a photo-reportage from one of the always recurring political rallies decides that the head of the speaker is unnecessary.. Only a flag is sufficient. In 1983 this was a tricoloured flag with a star, in front of which was a microphone that would or already had conveyed great words. The visible frame of the negative guarantees authenticity.
