Janez Janša, Janez Janša und Janez Janša, ein Künstlerkollektiv aus Slovenien, die vor rund 10 Jahren in die konservative Partei Slovenian Democratic Party eintraten, deren Vorsitzenden Namen annahmen und seitdem mit Bürokratie-Ästhetik und Identität rumspielen, haben drei riesige Kreditkarten aus ganz vielen kleinen personalisierten Kreditkarten gebaut.

In February 2015, borrowing the title from the name of the UBA debit card, the three Slovenian artists Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša started All About You, a project that takes advantage of the personalized card service offered by their bank: Nova Ljubljanska Banka. Each of them magnified the image of his ID card tenfold, then partitioned it into a hundred equal parts, and finally started applying for a new personalized Visa®, Maestro® and MasterCard® every week.

Each request was subjected to the scrutiny of bank’s employees who could accept or deny the submitted image in accordance with what is stated in the bank’s image guidelines. This turned the production into a time-based relational performance where the relation between the artist and the producer coincided with the relation between the bank’s customer and his bank.

The triptych All About You is a specific kind of ready-made that brings up several social and subject/object relations, such as money circulation, artwork status, identification and citizenship. We could say it represents a “self-portrait as a citizen” with the Republic of Slovenia used as a mirror.

Regine von WMMNA hat ein Interview mit den Herren: Self portraits for bank cards investigate money circulation, art ownership and identity. (via Swen)

JJ: JJ: We had personal email exchange with several bank employees, especially when a submitted image was rejected. We always asked what the reason for their negative answer was. Most of the time they referred to the bank’s image guidelines published online saying that the submitted image didn’t comply with it.

JJ: We always asked them to point out exactly what article of that document our image didn’t comply with and most of the time we got a precise answer. In their image guidelines, it is stated that the design chosen to create a personalized card must not contain (or refer to):
• Insulting and provocative images, graphics and other materials with religious, racist, hateful, violent or political messages in all forms;
Here our name appearing on the ID card has been understood as a “political” content. We then asked them where they see the difference between the name of the account holder and the very same name printed on the card as personalized design. They never answered that question.
• Photos, images or graphics, state or national symbols;
Our ID cards obviously contain state and national symbols. The graphic in itself is the graphic of a state document.
• Texts in a foreign language or foreign characters;
A Slovenian ID card is bilingual therefore English words (including the word “SEX” used there instead of “gender”) appear on it.
