Krádež ukradeného není zločinem Ivan Mečl | 17.04.2013 05:42
KRÁDEŽ UKRADENÉHO NENÍ ZLOČINEM
Patro s kancelářemi bude plné kurátorů, kterých se všechny instituce za které se dnes stydíme zbavily, a galerie bude plná uměleckého života a výstav, o jejichž uspořádání už nikdo nechce žebrat v institucích, které dávno ztratily prestiž. Kdyby měl někdo dodávku na odpis tak nejlepší je projet s ni tou velkou výlohou z nábřeží.
Adult Killer Ivan Mečl | blasphemy | 30.10.2012 15:38
ADULT KILLER
Mike Diana‘s style is one of the most unforgettable in contemporary painting and drawing; the bright bold colours of western advertising are combined with rough black lines drawn with the audacity of a Japanese master to form the twisted characters that populate his world. Diana became known in the early nineties for his terrifying child-like drawings published in his Boiled Angel papers.
Operation Žofín, or: A Czech Voina Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.02.2011
OPERATION ŽOFÍN, OR: A CZECH VOINA
“The state will not help slackers and delinquents who abuse government handouts,” said the Prime Minister. If his position was not filled by an idiot without talent or feeling, he might have said: “We will help those who have been pushed to the margins of society by twelve years of irresponsible politics, who have been pushed to the self-destructive use of already low welfare payments, or who…
Mystical-imperial intrigue: Poor Germany Ivan Mečl | contemporartism | 01.02.2011
MYSTICAL-IMPERIAL INTRIGUE: POOR GERMANY
Why do the Czechs exhibit German artists in such a historicist, mystic manner? It is an unconscious submissive aberration, a repeated yearning for the tyranny of cultural and transcendental values. The most recent victim of this aesthetic of the dark sweetshop unconscious of six-story cakes and visions of achieving commercial success by mixing all possible styles into a greasy artistic Eintopf is…
Le Dernier Cri and the black penis of Marseille Ivan Mečl | comics | 01.02.2011
LE DERNIER CRI AND THE BLACK PENIS OF MARSEILLE
We’re constantly hearing that someone would like to do some joint project, organize something together, some event, but… damn, how to put it... we really like what you’re doing but it might piss someone off back home. Sure, it’s true that every now and then someone gets kicked out of this institution or that institute for organizing something with Divus, but weren’t they actually terribly self…
Deja flap vu flap Ivan Mečl | poetry | 01.01.2011
DEJA FLAP VU FLAP
I can still play like this. When translating I come across words like flip flap. A Flip flap is an artificial flower that moves, as I found out when looking for the word’s meaning. In the same way, I came across this poem in some abandoned corner of the internet. I reckon it was written by some young girl in love. It has no title, and I find it pleasant and at times a bit awkward. This is because…
Playing at economics. Let’s Burn the King of Carnival! Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.01.2011
PLAYING AT ECONOMICS. LET’S BURN THE KING OF CARNIVAL!
God died years ago. The Germans spent a long time working on that. Today, human rule is biting the dust as well – through international cooperation and exchange. It’s no longer safe in the distant headquarters of the leaders of the world economy, nor in the hideaways of the smallest fish in the pond. Everybody is weighed down with a sense of ruin. The filth is piled up against the gates of the…
God from Nelson’s Head Ivan Mečl | The End of the Western Concept | 01.02.2010
GOD FROM NELSON’S HEAD
There is a hidden miracle in London. I’ve gone to sit under it and stare up at it for three years now. Must I tell you? In the Nelson’s Head pub at the end of Horatio Street there hangs a picture of the head of God. It cannot be said to be a portrait. It is a real planet of a head. A demiurge with a wisp of infinity in place of a mustache. Eyes like clefts in the mountain of Tora Bora. Only…
Yunsheng’s Language of Love Ivan Mečl | grayscale | 01.01.2010
YUNSHENG’S LANGUAGE OF LOVE
Zhao Yunsheng is the exact opposite of the typical image of the contemporary Chinese artist. He is hardly a scrawny figure with a ponytail, glasses and a goatee, an ironic look, and a casual blazer. Yunsheng has the figure of a bull, the disposition of a panda, and a round head with a buzz-cut. He is constantly drawing and painting in his apartment in a prefab housing estate on the outskirts of…
On 1989 and the systems under wich I have lived Ivan Mečl | 01.01.2010
ON 1989 AND THE SYSTEMS UNDER WICH I HAVE LIVED
Everything that we use and devalue beyond our basic needs becomes a victim of consumption. The process of consumption is the devaluation of material resources and non-material meanings. I was surprised to learn that this counts for thoughts as well. May this text be consumed too! In response to the celebrations of the 1989 revolution, I have combined passages from the latest book by Czech…
