"The art-historical significance of Braco Dimitrijevic's oeuvre--in the East as well as in the West--stems from this sensitization to the crisis affecting decision-making mechanisms. The latter challenge interpretations of historical processes as well as systems for assessing hierarchies in socio-cultural contexts. Therefore, his work can be seen from the vantage point of (post)conceptual and post-historical discourses. His empathic and romantic commitment to real human constellations determined by specific socio-cultural mechanisms and micro-political rituals places his attitude in a broader, more complex, and more diverse field of ethical participation. The situations presented in his installations and videos invariably convey dignified, critical, creative, anarchic, free, and independent notions. The oeuvre of Braco Dimitrijevic is sovereign and poetic, provocative and subversive, engaged and empathic because he unswervingly believes in the inseparability of life, art, and anthropological realities. His interest, to put it in a nutshell, centers on the human context."
Lorand Hegyi, excerpted from Empathic Conceptualism: The Human Context of Casuality in Braco Dimitrijevic's Work in Braco Dimitrijevic.

Braco Dimitrijevic gained international fame in the 1970s with his Casual Passersby series, in which gigantic photo-portraits of ordinary people were displayed on façades and billboards in European and American cities. In the early 1990s Dimitrijevic started a new cycle of portrait-installations, this time not using unknown people but artists, musicians and scientists better known for their achievements than for their names.

Essays by Dan Cameron, Achille Bonito Oliva, Jean Hubert Martin, Cornelia Lauf, Irina Karasik, Olesya Turkina and Nena Dimitrijevic.

The Sarajevo-born artist Braco Dimitrijev'c has forged a strongly personal and original artistic path through the great movements of the postwar period, from kinetic and op art to conceptual and performance art. Throughout his work, he has returned to questions of fame and fate: what is it that catapults certain people into the historical limelight, and what causes others to be mere "casual passersby"? Dimitrijevic gained international attention in the 1970s for his supersized portraits of unknown subjects hung in large public spaces, and ever since his work has been focused on questions of "post-history," a set of ideas he formulated in 1976. This monograph provides a comprehensive look at his arresting theory in action.
