FEEL LIKE SOME ART? CALL 1-900-1LENKA
"Immediately after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Czech society was hit by an unprecedented deluge of goods. Shopping fever has relieved the unquenchable desire for the free market and at this point nearly anything could become a commodity, including the human body.Immediately after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Czech society was hit by an unprecedented deluge of goods.

THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF VICE
"Sitting inside Bethlehem Chapel, on Bethlehem Square in Prague’s Old Town a few weeks ago, listening to the church organ, it was impossible not to think of prostitutes. Just before visiting the church, I had read that in the mid–1400s, a Czech reformer named Jan Milíč had converted prostitutes who were working in that area, and with the reformed local prostitutes, Milíč started a religious…

THE BALLOON FETISH: A POP KINK
"When I first discovered the balloon fetish on the Internet I felt like a virtual Indiana Jones hacking through the website jungle seeking information-age buried treasure on a mission to unearth new niche kinks from the sexual underground. When I followed a link to “Balloon Buddies, Ltd. Bringing Balloon Lovers Together Since 1976,” I knew I had stumbled upon the mythic “lost tribe” of…

GRANT ME A WISH, TOM OF FINLAND
Everybody knows what a man looks like. But to see a real man, all you have to do is take a look at several pictures by the king of gay esthetics. A biker stands at a bar, leather cap, mustache, and under that a roguish smirk. His clothes are a little ragged, and his chest muscles rival a woman’s unwieldy breasts. In the leg-squeezing trousers we see all too clearly the anatomy of a giant penis.…

MAPS OF THETIS
"Two, no, in fact three maps of Thetis remain well preserved to this day. One of the three, however, has only archeological significance, the still featured continent of Nukereria having sunk beneath the ocean during a major geological catastrophe suffered by the planet Thetis long ago. And the two political maps of the little planet now have only historical value as Thetis was utterly…

MESMERIZED UNIVERSAL HARMONY IN THE INDIVIDUAL WORLD
"Case StudyHe has been hailed as the great-grandfather of parapsychology, the discoverer of hypnosis, the progenitor of clairvoyance, telepathy and communication with the beyond. And he has also been denounced as a rogue, a charlatan, and as selling his soul to the devil. Anyway you view him, Franz Anton Mesmer is remembered as being more than just a cultish magician. Born in 1734, he first…

SKINS AND BONES
"An interview with Andrew Trabbold, texture artist for Raven Software (Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Elite Force) based in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. Jeff Bartel spent an afternoon with Mr. Trabbold examining the emerging role of artwork in contemporary video games, the limitations of technology, and the nature of freedom and violence within games that come ever closer to simulating visual…

SPINNING BLADES
I’m standing at a bar, glass of Miller Lite in hand, with a group of people from work. As with any gathering of people from a workplace, the bitching is fast and furious. In the background, a couple karaokes “Summer Dreams.”“So I’m going to write an article about video games,” I say. “For Umělec, an art magazine out of Prague.” After the cheers and backslapping subside, I continue: “So what’s…

HEAVY METAL
"Skulls, tons of skulls. Black, night and horror. A grave. Satan and death, terrifying noise, an end to all hope, demons and madness. All standard fare in heavy metal music, along with skeletons, blood, doomed civilizations, vomit, black magic, war, blasphemy, booze, freakish animals, pierced eyes, cemeteries, fetuses, Armageddon, violence, underground crypts stacked with corpses, the nation,…

AT THE EDGE OF IMPERMANENCE
“Borderhack! does not pretend to destroy the border, but, in a worst case scenario, only to make us conscious of it. In the world of computers, hacking is understood as the penetration, exploration or investigation of a system with the goal of understanding it, not of destroying it, and that is exactly what we are trying to do: to understand the border, to know what it represents and to become…
