Largely under recognized in the West, Sanja Ivelovic was one of the first self described feminist artists to emerge form the former Yugoslavia’s overlooked experimental art scene of the 1970s. Following in the autobiographical vein of her artist’s book “Double Life”, in Tragedy of a Venus Ivekovic presents a selection of photos of Marilyn Monroe coupled with similarly composed snapshots and posed photos of the artist from throughout her life. The book provides a pointed reflection on the prescribed ideals of femininity by pop culture and the mainstream media, presaging the work of the women artists of the Pictures Generation.

This artists’ book was published on the occasion of Sanja Ivekovic’s solo show at the Gallery of Contemporary Art in Zagreb in December 1976. The material reprinted here was selected from the magazine Duga in November 1975 under the title “Tragedy of Venus”.
