    1970-1971

    CODE

    Slobodan Slavko Mirko Miroslav

    an arrow of art that through speed burst into flames in the cosmic night 

    everything I worked and experienced within that year belongs to the group Code

    everything that I later heard or read about the group Code does not correspond to what I feel

    I relinquished group Code to remain faithful to it

    for me it was a year of

    sensibility

    forcefulness

    directness

    ideas

    invisible

    tautologies

    wholeness

    non-annotation

    great art

    rebellion through art

    rebellion within art

    discovery of I

    I of art

    I within art

    nobody could follow me so I left the group Code in the spring of 1971

    the path of one’s own genius had to be taken

    1971

    MIROSLAV MANDIC FUCKS EVERYBODY’S MOTHER

    last masterpiece in the twentieth century

    towards the end of January I was going back home

    in the night. on my own. a young beast

    raging but innocent. hurt but repulsed by himself

    carried away and already blown away

    by creative and unrestrained force in my mind 

    I flew through the art of twentieth century

    and realised that the story is over

    and that the only masterpiece left in it was

    Miroslav Mandic Fucks Everybody’s Mother

    a thunder-piece that killed and saved me

    on 30th September 2009 I wrote this:

    to get going

    to lead myself towards myself

    by the genius of the path – by the genius of the rose

    the child of the twentieth century art has died for the art of all centuries

    a thunder of creating

    Miroslav Mandic Fucks Everybody’s Mother

    is the last masterpiece that swept away

    all human crimes and all crimes of art

    Miroslav Mandic Is Everybody’s Mother

    1971

    BREAKAWAY

    from

    art – studying – film

    when I realised that the aesthetic is best expressed

    through evil and that is how a lot of evil and a lot of aesthetic was created and

    that I could make it as an artist only if I overcome existing

    amount of aesthetic with even more evil

    I decided to break away from art

    I was yearning for unknown and wonderful paths of art

    I boded that art is God’s love. God’s breathe

    by breaking away from art I jumped into the abyss of unknown

     

    I broke away from studying literature because I had a hunch of what kind of danger

    for human spirit – literature – creativity is coming from the university which became

    contemporary inquisition. a place where mafia of the profane elite is created

    university enslaves gifted people and intoxicates them with vanity

    so that they can soullessly and without responsibility rule people and other beings

    by braking away from studies I freed myself from chains of banal scholarity

     

    I also broke away from film which was my biggest love up until then

    I thought I was going to watch films my whole life and find in them everything that is

    larger than life but film was cruelly and extortionately expensive and that is why I gave it

    up. through breaking away from film in pain of parting

    I anticipated the sweetness of divine loyalty 

    losing existing so as to receive everything

     

    &

     

    1971

    GREAT WORK OF ART MADE OUT OF NOTHING

    walking back home somewhere around the transformer

    JAIL

    9th November 1972 – 9th August 1973

    strict jail in Sremska Mitrovica – second nine months in my life

    there was no crime but there was punishment and therefore 

    Punishment and Freedom

    I never felt guilty for what I was sentenced for

    but in jail through the mercy of Ghandi Christ Mohammed Dostoyevsky

    Tolstoy Rolland Ramakrishna Nerval Kafka Poe Keller Maeterlinck Lao Tzu

    I discovered much bigger guilt

    the guilt of the first man

    the guilt of being born

    it was unbearable and that’s what saved me

    the crisis to death

    my strength was painfully suffering from love

    I was crucified

    on one side by existing society that I call the police

    on the other side by all the knowledge that I call secret societies

    I went straight and directly

    towards God

    DECISIONS

    with which I came out of prison

    vegetarianism – it helped me a lot. I was marked. it opened me up towards nonmaterial food

    nonviolence – a kind of tenderness. my friend

    not to get a job – not being in faulty necessity exposed to phraseology

    to shorten the step – taming my aggressiveness. soaring into the tranquillity

    to be quiet – oh! that was often so good but it was hard as well. it was like music

    not to talk in language of educated people – as far away as possible from corruptness and mediocrity

    not possessing anything – it was maturity of a young man. responsibility for existence

    to give books away – first thought of it was torturing me since books were everything

    to me and when I came to the decision to give them away I felt joy of non-possessing

    homelessness – responsibility through freedom

    poverty – using my strength on compassion

    modesty – calming down the strength and wildness of vanity in the silence of modesty

    not buying clothes – to be occupied less with myself as possible

    caring about others – enjoying others like back in the days in films

    giving blood – how I used to look forward to it

    to be patient – that dear soft strength

    not reading books – it was a rest in the head. on my own towards new levels of conscience

    not attending cultural manifestations – to be on the margin. to be everything within myself

    to be disobedient towards police and secret societies – building dignity on ideals and on my own path

    to be on the side of the rejected and to live being compassionate towards them – thank

    you my loved ones. you are gentility – the keepers of conscience and consciousness

    not watching myself in the mirror – it is such a good thing
