With the spatial installation EU/OTHERS, Kamerić thematises one of the most momentous pairs of opposites in current sociopolitical geography with the means of conceptual art. The artist takes the signposts which divide people arriving at airports into two groups, and places them in a new environment. Her work leads far beyond the use of everyday symbols into political space.
