Being a chronicler of the present, the painter Radenko Milak records the events of our time. In addition to making them tangible for posterity, in his visual worlds he also shines a light on social structures and their forms of coexistence. In various thematic series, he documents the many contradictions and global upheavals of our age such as the various mechanisms of social control and surveillance, the effects of climate change, and protest movements like Black Lives Matter in the USA and the demonstrators in Belarus. The images of social, ecological, political, and economic unrest and crises originate in the world of news, where they are produced in quick succession as means of communication. By transferring them to the medium of painting, Milak creates experimental access to our visual memory.
