NEUROPA, INC. EUROPE’S ARTIFICIAL BODY
It has been almost two years since Jacques Derrida and Juergen Habermas published an appeal that the so-called “core Europe” be an “avant-garde locomotive” for a united European continent. In this appeal, published in the German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the French La Liberation, and entitled “After the War: The Rebirth of Europe,” the authors attempted to define a new European…

THE OLDEST FIRE IN POLAND
When I first noticed the plastic digital watch made by Janek Simon, a Polish artist, I assumed he had some particular reason for not simply buying one. But Simon, who was born in 1977, grew up in real socialism. Perhaps he couldn’t get over a childhood trauma. Digital watches used to be cult objects for Poles, Czechoslovaks and the Soviets.

Replacing those movements’ pale Abstract Expressionist…

KITSCH AND KEN’S AUNT A PORTRAIT OF POLISH CONTEMPORARY ART
Poland’s political breakthrough in 1989 brought no significant breakthrough in art. News was widespread in the nineties of a critical art directing its sharp point at Democles and deconstructing the reality of a country freshly freed from the Communist regime. Communism was replaced by consumer society and the worship of eternal youth. Artists called attention to the fact that in 1989 Poles did…
One Small Diversion Rafał Jakubowicz | poland | 01.03.2002
ONE SMALL DIVERSION
"In early September the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza published a text by Kuba Wandachowicz of the band Cool Kids of Death.1 In this manifesto, entitled “Generation Nothing,” he defines in specific terms the Polish situation in which he and his peers currently live. They are young “intellectuals,” representatives of the generation born in the mid-1970s, a generation that, as Wandachowicz puts…
