Petra Herotová Jiří Ptáček | reviews | 01.03.2006
PETRA HEROTOVÁ
Petra Herotová was born in 1980 and since 2004 has been studying in the intermedia and conceptual studio of Jiří David at Prague’s VŠUP. Trying to define the key subejcts of Petra’s work, we can use words like “communication,” “family,” “identity.” But that is so general that we should add at least three more concrete indications: “screwdriver,” “smilies” and “daddy.” What comes out of this? …
Periferic Biennial. Commonopoly in the artscene TELL_1_VISION (Viviana Druga & Tiberiu Bleoanca) | reviews | 01.03.2006
PERIFERIC BIENNIAL. COMMONOPOLY IN THE ARTSCENE
The business. The pleasure. From outside the Romanian art scene, one could observe that the country benefits from a developed art infrastructure similar to that of any Western country. There are specialized galleries, a Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), some festivals, 3 important art magazines (Idea, arts + society, Cluj-Napoca; Pavilion magazine, Bucharest and Vector magazine, Iasi) and no…

BEAUTY ON THE BOTTOM, IN BYTOM - EXGIRLS’ BAD NEWS
Curators Magdalena Ujma and Joanna Zielińska have picked up Helen of Troy’s tale where she left it. Carefully crafted for Bytom—an industrial town in Polish Silesia surrounded by the steep slag-hills of discontinued coal-mines—this exhibition seeks to reveal a sublime nuance that lurks within contemporary ideas of beauty, and is visible in news-media imagery. Last year, the two curators—who…

The festival of contemporary art Tina B. was supposed to be the most prestigious action of this summer. Visiting it I recalled my old wish to award anti-prizes in visual art just like in any other field. Tina B. would be in the running for the Fiasco of the Year. Odd and even years Tina B. is a fictitious artist and an acronym at the same time: This Is Not Another Biennale. In the Czech…
The Ideal City is a Dead City Anna Mituś | reviews | 01.03.2006
THE IDEAL CITY IS A DEAD CITY
There has been a lot of talk about plentiful new international events of the biennial type. One can hardly imagine the global art scene without them, not to mention any self-respecting cultural center. The great curator and promoter of contemporary art, Anda Rottenberg, chose none of them for the location for such an event in Poland. The proving ground to establish it has instead become the…
The secret of the flower pot (Markéta Othová, Dům umění, Brno) Jiří Ptáček | reviews | 01.04.2002
THE SECRET OF THE FLOWER POT (MARKÉTA OTHOVÁ, DŮM UMĚNÍ, BRNO)
The Secret of the FlowerpotMarkéta Othová, Other Voices, Dům umění, České Budějovice, October 17 – November 30, 2002Markéta Othová is a unique discovery in her generation. She thoroughly enchases her photographic concept of eternity, and because she stresses the inner ties of her program, she is unusually transparent with her work. Points of reality, about which it is possible to state that they…
