Description Janez Janša is the name of Slovenia’s economic-liberal, conservative prime minister – and has also been the name of three well-known Slovenian artists since the summer of 2007; officially and with all the papers and stamps required for an official name change. All of their works, their private affairs, in a word their whole life has been conducted under this name ever since. One year later, they are now analysing the effects of this gesture in an exhibition for the first time. All of the exhibits are immediate products of reality: Janša, Janša and Janša turn the relationship of art and life on its head by means of transformation, translation, representation and mimesis. While above all art was redefined in the past century by a reality, Janša, Janša and Janša want to achieve the exact opposite by penetrating deep into their own real lives and into the life of their immediate environment.
