I don’t know what to do

I want to revolt. My dear mom passed an apartment to me that I share with my beautiful girlfriend. She’s got big tits and studies art. I also go to a prestigious school. I got in right after high school, and all my friends are jealous. When I was 19 I made more money than my aunt with her three university degrees, but I wasn’t working a whole lot. I work for a webzine that’s doing pretty well. I cover New Media, sort of.
I fulfilled my dream and bought myself a VW camper. Sometimes when I get bored, I get myself weird haircuts and buy some tasteless clothing second hand. I wear huge sunglasses and feel real cool. I’m off to Norway this summer, and I’ll take on a residency somewhere far away in the future. I got some gaps in my schooling, but I cover that up pretty good. I don’t do hard drugs, cause I don’t want to screw myself up, and I caress girls at dance-parties. I can’t stand the Czech attitude to many things, but I can’t seem get away from it either. I got nothing against politics—as long as I have food and freedom to be free. Starving children are elsewhere and I don’t keep a diary. I can speak with all sorts of people and despise them at the same time. I have high speed internet so I’m never bored. I am a chauvinist, but I can be sensitive and nice if I want to. I do colored pictures, but not so trendy to seem like I’m above it all, and I shop in Ikea. Now I’m lying “sick” in my bed (from Ikea), because I overdid yesterday’s party. I’m writing this peace of crap, which should be my school presentation, for a “conceptual video,” and I know that I can defend it even though it was due months ago. It’s Saturday, somewhere in the middle of March, lunchtime. I’m listening to electronic music, I’m going to eat something and fall asleep again. It’s time to revolt. Ha ha ha.

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.…

There’s 130 kilos of fat, muscles, brain & raw power on the Serbian contemporary art scene, all molded together into a 175-cm tall, 44-year-old body.

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…
