ABOUT BLACKNESSTHE DESTRUCTION OF THE GUELMAN GALLERY: THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
On October 21, 2006 a dozen thugs ransacked an exhibition of Alexander Jikia and the offices of the Guelman Gallery. Dressed in leather clothes and wearing no masks, they acted methodically and silently. They put the employees against the wall and took away their phones. The destruction took all of ten minutes. Gallery owner Marat Guelman called it a scare tactic. They did not steal anything, but…

PARADISE LOST AND FOUND
or For the Rights of Black-And-White Cows! When my colleagues at the editorial office learned where I was going they all laughed at the place‘s name, Shargorod. Nobody had ever heard of it and my own knowledge was merely from a press release and poor internet sources. I was speaking enthusiastically about a small remote Ukrainian town with a rich history not far from the famous city of…
Belarusian Flash Mob Alena Boika | action | 01.03.2006
BELARUSIAN FLASH MOB
A Flash mob is a mass art phenomenon, which in 2003 swept in a meaningless wave over the whole world. A small and “happy” country named Belarus – which has drawn international attention due to last March’s attempted revolution and “last dictator” Lukashenko – also took part in this phenomenon. Here, an entirely new kind of flash mob – a political one – has been born. In Place of a Preface ...…

CABARET VOLTAIRE
Interactive Recycling and Mark Divo Why Alternative Culture Is Being Eliminated in Zurich or Dear Swiss Artists, Welcome to Prague!!! While working on this issue I came across a glossy advertisement for Cabaret Voltaire Spiegelgasse 1, in Zurich and could not resist the temptation to write about it. Besides, I was going to do it anyway as I was impressed by the story told by Mark Divo, the…

This year, the number of participants considerably increased – there were over fifty of them; the exposition occupied four stories of the Central House of Artists on Krymski Val. For…
How Ukrainians Were Looking For Happiness Alena Boika | Ukraine | 01.03.2005
HOW UKRAINIANS WERE LOOKING FOR HAPPINESS
Not everybody loves revolutions. One person is afraid of them and hates them; someone else hides behind hypocritical clichés. I adore revolutions. It is the time when the overwhelming majority gets to forget any tendency to think about washing machines, albeit briefly. And all those joyful feelings burst forth “We will win” and “Everything is yet to come.” I was fortunate to be able to go to…
Hope-Stop! Alena Boika | Moscow Biennale | 01.02.2005
HOPE-STOP!
On January 26, when the press-conference of the First Moscow Biennale was at its height, an exhibition called Hope-Stop! opened at the Anatoly Zverev Center of Contemporary Art in Moscow. Its promoters called it an anti-Biennale. Moscow-based art critic Andrey Kovalev asked the exhibition’s participants a simple question: "It is rumored that Hope-Stop! is an anti-Biennale. Is it true or not?"…
