Naked in Post-soviet Armenia Eva Khachatrian | performance | 01.02.2003
NAKED IN POST-SOVIET ARMENIA
Performance art has generally played an interesting role in contemporary Armenian art. Nearly every artist here has explored this sphere for themselves. Nowadays Azat Sargsyan, also known for his frequent travel, is probably the most devoted representative of this live genre in contemporary Armenian art. In one performance made for the show After the Wall (1999), and repeated for Sao Paolo…
Stoker’s long finger shadows Jiří Ptáček | performance | 01.02.2003
STOKER’S LONG FINGER SHADOWS
These days people most often speak about artist Michal Pěchouček in the superlative. His talent is (suddenly or according to expectation — this is for each to decide) mature. Each step will therefore be observed with care. But let’s review what Michal Pěchouček has going for him: he has not gone the extra mile to curry public favor outside art territory; he is not the victim of quackish acts of…
Tehching Hsieh – One Life Performance Jan Suk | performance | 01.02.2003
TEHCHING HSIEH – ONE LIFE PERFORMANCE
Performing the Self When it come to challenging life values, a more compact, clear, genuine, and universal example in the field of performance art cannot be found. The work of Tehching Hsieh is a manifestation of ultimate human freedom, as solid as marble. His art deals with the most powerful elements at play in life, while at the same time touching on the most intimate subjects. Modern art has…
Performance of machines and people in the online environment  Denisa Kera | performance | 01.02.2003
PERFORMANCE OF MACHINES AND PEOPLE IN THE ONLINE ENVIRONMENT
“The internet is actually one big, permanent performance.”We usually associate performances and happenings with the “real” world, whether it is with the physical body in body-art, with landscape in land-art, or some other type of individual and collective action in public space. These interventions disrupt social practices, rituals or regimes at work, and they often take the form of protest or an…

Captive of the Concept of the Miraculous  (Between Art and Life) Miloš Vojtěchovský | performance | 01.03.2000
CAPTIVE OF THE CONCEPT OF THE MIRACULOUS (BETWEEN ART AND LIFE)
Jan Bas Ader entered art history in his final performance, which was exceptional and remarkable for two reasons. Firstly, there is no visual documentation of it (at least I have not found any). It was a peculiar and adventurous event, during the course of which Ader died at the age of 33 somewhere in the Atlantic between Europe and America. In July 1975, he set out on a small sailboat to cross…
Native Performer Still Lives Miloš Vojtěchovský | performance | 01.05.1999
NATIVE PERFORMER STILL LIVES

TURNSTILE
Since the beginning of the 1990‘s, art magazines have regularly featured reports on action art festivals in the country. Perhaps the first one of them was Malamut in 1997, followed by Permanent Performance in Cheb and the A.K.T. festival in Brno’s House of Arts. The most recent one, Action Prague, took place at the end of Summer 1998 at the Roxy Club. While Ostrava will host its sixth Malamut…
