Yana Milev’s “A. O. B. B. M.E.” system represents a radical attempt to pre-characterize the production relations and modes of production of her own work. The artist, who by definition defines herself as a product critical of knowledge, sees her production resulting in consequent self-similarity as temporally bound up with abstract rules. With product stamp imprint and date provided, visitors to their installation in the cold room of consumption become the merchandise of the artist who, applying autopoietic methods consistently, has her own logo branded on her back: even ideas are goods, hence they need an aesthetic.
