A short section from editor’s preface:
“Golf MK2 changed the way on how we understand the concept of mobility and space. For this and many other factors we wanted to explore how the younger generation of artists understands the role of a single consumer good becoming a monument for itself. Golf today is a part of a stereotypical image of rural areas in Slovenia and places where suburbanized areas meet countryside. The places where we grew up.
Everytime I see Golf MK2 on the road I think of a home, Dolenjska region, the place where golfs are so popular. I cannot identify all the reasons why is Golf MK2 still popular. Namely it’s known for the quality and usability. Since there are so many reasons for Golf’s success, we have been mainly focusing on the way how the car changed our way of understanding the relation between space and time.
We are discovering the visuality of a single consumer type, that changed the attitude towards consumerism and other consumer goods. The visual exploration is dealing with our own regional identification and our position in diversified post-modern society. How did the Golf MK2 become Das Auto? “

Value of money/value of art
I claimed once that the biggest problem of monetary economy is money itself. It’s simple. Money has a value that is abstract and unimaginable. To emphasize this I will porously use an over exaggerated cases in the great art world!
If we take a look on the list of the most expensive photographs ever sold, the amounts are still next to nothing, compared with the most expensive Paul Cézanne’s The card players, which was sold for 250 + billion dollars.

Golf II: another teaser!
My friend sent me a funny Serbian rap song about legendary car Golf Mk II! After some “scientific” research on the internet I couldn’t decided what to post. So many funny, great material.
The car is obviously a legend. In Slovenia I think golf in more like a metaphor for a car. If you think of a car in Slovenia, it must be a golf!

Ena rola filma - no. 1 Golf II (call for entries)
Wikipedia: “The Volkswagen Golf Mk2 succeeded the Mk1 as Volkswagen’s volume seller from 1983 and remained in (German) production until late 1992. In comparison to its predecessor, its wheelbase grew slightly (+ 75 mm (3.0 in)), as did exterior dimensions (length + 180 mm (7.1 in), width + 55 mm (2.2 in), height + 5 mm (0.2 in)). Weight was up accordingly by about 120 kg (264.6 lb). Exterior design, developed in-house by VW design director Schäfer, kept the general lines of its Giugiaro-designed predecessor, but was slightly more rounded. All told, about 6.3 million second-generation Golfs were built.”
