Chanel No. 5

In the evening, after an entire day spent scanning official documents and with his fingers trembling from all that dematerialization, a person might, as he his falling asleep, slap his forehead in the realization that he would feel better if, in the morning, he stopped doing his job and refused to wipe the dust of the scanner’s glass surface. Only the dusty bits of cellulose on his nasal membranes now remind him satisfactorily that, even though he is easily lost, he can just as easily still find himself.

The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from 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…

The vernissage—the art opening—is simply part and parcel of the art business. It’s where individuals meet, maintain contacts and where the actual reason for the event itself—the christening of a new exhibition and the display of new works of art—is more often than not pushed to the background. For most people, sometimes yawning disinterestedly or tensely, it is a routine, but the hope of…

Particularly populist and eternally partisan, this subject is intimately associated with contemporary Belarusian art. It cannot be disregarded that partisans always appear together with the enemy—the one against whom they can carry out their raids. German fascist invaders were the most recent visible and real enemy. Notwithstanding the seeming remoteness of events, new technologies, appearances…

If we ask ourselves what (if any) unique message has been bequeathed to us by postmodern theory, the hardest work would be agreeing on what that message is. Its usefulness cannot be reduced to words like diffusion, ambiguity, mystification or mere skepticism; in all likelihood we would look for a solution in vain.
