END OF THE FAIRY TALE (between the fairy tale and Václav Stratil) Jiří Ptáček | focus | 01.03.2003
END OF THE FAIRY TALE (BETWEEN THE FAIRY TALE AND VÁCLAV STRATIL)
" (between the fairy tale and Václav Stratil) A fairy tale resides within the slants of the consciousness. Comparing it to rational mind is denied, as the end result is always untenable, or at best is only considered an emergence of the structures of the collective consciousness. However, at the very moment the fairy tale transforms into the one and only order of the world, it is accepted, and…

IT’S BEST TO BE AWESOME, OR ON THE EDGE OF THE FAIRY TALE
“The capable man is an artist.” (Michal Nesázal) Michal Nesázal (1963) has been working since 1999 on an ever-expanding series of landscape paintings. The viewer is offered insight into diverse landscape frames, where action is allowed full play through the inherent elements: trees, bushes, rocks, lakes, hills and human dwellings (including their shadows). The outer formal diversity of the…

GOTT THE ARTIST
"A medley of hits plays in a swank Prague restaurant. It’s a recent all-covers affair, belted out by Tom Jones with the floor-stompers, “Theme to Evita,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” from the Wizard of Oz soundtrack, Rod Stewart’s “If You Think I’m Sexy,” etc. I’m sure the tourists love this stuff in Vegas; it could even be his actual playlist for casino tours, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s…

BEYOND THE NEW ART OF KOSOVO
"Experimentation and great about-faces in the international art scene are responsible for the spread of Kosovar fine arts. There is not a long tradition here in the fine arts — until recently there were only two pioneering generations of modern artists — and self-content, non-conflict academicism is dominant. The first generations of Kosovar artists (with the exception of Xhevdet Xhafa, who…

IS THERE ANY CONTEMPORARY CULTURE IN KOSOVO?
"Since 1999, the international force of NATO and UNMIK (United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo) has created partial freedom for people who live in Kosovo. For over ten years Yugoslavia had taken from Albanians all their basic rights to education, work, health and culture. So the 1999 “Turning Point” was considered a wave of freedom among the international public. Albanians…

RECYCLING OF NATIONAL MYTHS IN SERBIAN ART OF THE NINETIES
"Production of social space in FRY It could be argued that the specific socio-political framework and context in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was in many ways unique in Europe. The way social space was produced, starting from the end of the 1980s in the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and later in the new Republics that were formed after its disintegration, was extremely…

POWER TO THE ARTIST (INTERVIEW WITH SISLEJ XHAFA)
"Sislej Xhafa, an Albanian from Kosovo, travels widely, experiencing various world cultures firsthand, and from this basis he makes his work, touching on illegality, immigration, and authority. He first became known at the 1997 Venice Biennale for his performance Unofficial Albanian Pavilion in which he strolled through the various national pavilions bouncing a soccer ball and blaring a recording…

KOSOVO GYPSY ART: A MEDIUM FOR SURVIVAL
"Paul Polansky is the author of 14 books, of which eight are about the Roma. Since 1991 he has lived with the Roma in the Czech Republic and Kosovo. He is co-founder of the Kosovo Roma Refugee Foundation and he is currently living in Pristina, Kosovo. His last book about the Kosovo Gypsies, TO UNHCR, WITH LOVE, was published by Divus and Jejune Ultima in September 2003. For 12 weeks this past…

QUESTIONS FOR ARTIST SOKOL BEQIRI
"Mr. Beqiri, could you briefly explain the current political situation in Kosovo, its future and role of UNMIK? The shortest way to describe the current political situation is unclear. Unclear, because of the undefined status of Kosovo. I feel that the UNMIK is a part of the former Yugoslav system, a bureaucratic, autocratic, ineffective and expensive administration. I see the future of Kosovo as…

THE SHOSHONE AND THE UNICORN
Artist Jan Hísek is not typically described as being unambiguous. The truth is, this is no surprise: there is nothing unambiguous about him. He sails through the Czech art scene as mysteriously as the Flying Dutchman. He represents a special, timeless and possibly outdated phenomenon, which, however, still subconsciously attracts attention. “He’s a Shoshone [ed.— i.e. from another planet],” said…
