As a feminist artist, Sania Iveković (b. 1949) explores the place and image of women in communist societies such as the former Yugoslavia. Trokut (Triangle) reports of a performance staged by Iveković in 1979 during a parade by former President Josip Broz Tito in the streets of Zagreb. Out on her balcony with a book in her hand, the artist pretended to masturbate, fully aware that she was being observed. This provocative act was played out on the border of the public and the private sphere, and juxtaposes these dimensions from both historical and social perspectives.
