The subject will wake up from the sleep. The discovery of the horrible delusion, the collapse of the dreamful truth, shall appear in the figure of the death. “Only death puts our representation to an end; only then the real life begins, only then shall we see the reality as it really is”. Only death shall disenchant the bedazzled and, for the moment, make him see clearly his blindedness, make him discern the truth as an illusion, comprehend the methodic acquiring of knowledge as a baroque play, irregular and disordered, perceive the world as a multitude of unexplainable images, hieroglyphs, incoherent fragments which suddenly, in the moment of death, for the moment, but perfectly clear, “show that the logic of the body, of the feelings, of the life and the death, does not coincide with the logic of the power, nor with the logic of the notion”. In the moment of death, when one, nevertheless, reaches the final point of the baroque labyrinth, the mad monster shall wake from the sleep only to discover the illusion, to discover that he objectified his own imaginary into exteriority and as exteriority, to see that he lived his entire life detached from the life, that he spent his entire life in death, blinded by himself. “And so the man, wretched, hungry, dies while living and lives while dead”. Paradoxically, the life will be revealed only if viewed from the perspective of the death, the truth will show itself only from the delusion. Res cogitans shall then, while dying, while living only in the moment of dying, discover the truth of the blind not as vision but as deception, not as the truth but as an delusion, it will see itself as deluded blind, as the blind who is blinded by the lust for himself and his own power.

Magda Tóthová Magda Tóthová
Borrowing heavily from fairy tales, fables and science fiction, the art of Magda Tóthová revolves around modern utopias and social models and their failures. Her works address personal and social issues, both the private and the political. The stylistic device of personification is central to the social criticism emblematic of her work and to the negotiation of concepts used to construct norms.…
My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.
Terminator vs. Avatar: Notes on Accelerationism Terminator vs. Avatar: Notes on Accelerationism
Why political intellectuals, do you incline towards the proletariat? In commiseration for what? I realize that a proletarian would hate you, you have no hatred because you are bourgeois, privileged, smooth-skinned types, but also because you dare not say that the only important thing there is to say, that one can enjoy swallowing the shit of capital, its materials, its metal bars, its polystyrene…
The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

IIn the vestibule of a large hotel in Tirana where, in the end, we did not stay, I noticed a poster on a tourist board with the attractive slogan “Albania: The Last Secret.” It accosted us because we had no desire to see the sights of a country that had weathered the ravages of Enver Hoxha. We were here to find out what was happening at Tirana’s second biennale. The patron of the first biennale…

“Instead of interpreting art, we must love art.” Susan SontagTwo years ago I saw a work by a Balkan artist, whose name I eventually forgot, a recording of his performance in a gallery where he lifted and pulled weights as a professional for a body-building session. The confrontation of him toning up his overly developed muscles in the space of the intellectually charged gallery made me think…
