Abramović’s exhibition is called Entering the Other Side, and came to place when she visited The Kistefos Museum last year. Inspired by the hard lives of the workers at the mill, and relating it to her own childhood in former Yugoslavia, she created a sound installation specially for Kistefos with the themes life and death. It can be heard in every corner of the old, industrial mill, as if the walls were chanting.
In the absence of any other evidence, it is fairly safe to assume that Thelema was introduced to what was then Yugoslavia by one Robert Nemecek, who was then a musician in a well-known (in Yugoslavia) band called ‘Rock Machine’. Today Nemecek has a senior position at one of the largest Yugoslav television stations.
