Four in one / video / mini dv / color / 8:30min / 2010 The work entitled 4 in 1 is a self-reflection of and upon the impact of my art as  observed in a broader social, cultural and political context. The multiplication of Igor  Bošnjak as an artist, critic, theoretician and curator tells the story of personal  ‘schizophrenia’ and a split identity, striving to be in the current, alert, attentive and  sensible, dynamic and successful in his community.  N. M.: Deleuze and Guattari introduced the term schizoanalysis to make up for the  failure of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis channels desire by means of censure and  auto-censure. In that way, the subconscious and unconscious serve the preservation and reproduction of the system, instead of liberating man, in accordance with their  unlimited creative potential. According to their theory, those are the ultimate limits of  capitalism. Schizophrenia thus becomes the essential determinant of postmodern  culture, a sort of media ecstasy, i.e. media-generated collective fanaticism. In the work  4 in 1 you multiply (clone) yourself into four Igor Bosnjaks. You act simultaneously as  an artist, theoretician, critic and curator, creating a multiple schizotypal personality.  Does the splitting of the contemporary artist's personality relate only to your  experience of creating up-to-the-minute art forms, or may this work be interpreted as  common for the practice of art nowadays? Is this construct applicable to the broader  social environment you work in?  I. B.: Anti-Edipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia opens up new possibilities for  reading and understanding the role of the subject in today's global society. The video  work 4 in 1 is perhaps the most explicit expression of this, of this very desire, i.e. of  the relations between subjects and desiring-machines. Decoding fluxes and  deterritorialising the Socius thus represent the strongest tendencies of capitalism. It is  constantly coming closer to its limits. It strives with all its might to produce a  schizophrenic as a subject of decoded fluxes on a body without organs. When it is said  that schizophrenia is our illness, the illness of our time, this does not only mean that  modern living makes people crazy. In fact, we wish to say that capitalism, in its  process of production, creates a powerful schizophrenic charge, which it suppresses  with all its repression tools, but which does not stop from being reproduced as the  limits of the process. It is exactly through the agency of this imposed framework that  capitalism restores all kinds of artificial, imaginary or symbolic territorialities, within  which it tries to re-code those individuals who have broken free from abstract  quantities. In a way, 4 in 1 attempts to dymistify the generally acceptable stances and  norms in the system of art. The splitting of my personality as seen in this work comes  from my practice of contemporary art, my theoretical writing and thinking, work as a  critic, as well as some curating projects I have been involved in. The linear narrative  reading and exposition of me as multiplied, i.e. of me as an artist, then as a  theoretician, as a critic and finally as a curator (who is lighting a cigarette in a  theatrical manner, while the artist, theoretician and critic are looking on silently), really  speaks about the currently dominant position of the curator. Because in my opinion,  today, the whole system of art, the global art market, the great biennial exhibitions are  mere playgrounds used by curators to make decisions and select. What the artist,  theoretician or critic do is not too important. In fact, everything is sublimated through  the curator's selection, who decides on who is an artist and what is art today. For, the  schizophrenic is positioned at the very limits of capitalism: he is its strong tendencies,  its hyperproduct, proletarian and angel of death…
