Adina Bar-On | war | en cs de es

Letter: January 6, 2009

To my friends,
I can hear you.
I have been laying beside Daniel, hour after hour and day after day, watching the sights and listening closely to the endless horror of war.
I am devastated.
I seem to think, ironically, that if I watch constantly than we, Danny and I, shall hold the war back (even if only slightly).
I want to do more.
You know my work, somehow always reflects the gain of ideology beside the loss of lives and - I have imagined performing “About Love” in front of Parliament, on the main shopping area, inside a shelter, at the Art gallery, facing the sea.
I am futile.
Sincerely,
Adina


Letter: February 1, 2009

My Dear Alena,
I think I know how you feel when trying to have an influence during a state of War.
Art seems futile in the face of War; How can the Muses sing while the Bombs are falling!?
[There is such a saying in Hebrew ... have you a saying that has a similar meaning?]
I wanted to perform during the war, as a form of a protest, I suppose, but it felt ridiculous; I mean - Art can not scare War!
HA!

I will perform, though, in a fundraising event; a fundraising event for the Palestinians ...

All my work deals with Loss in the face of Ideologies and consequently Wars.

Magda Tóthová Magda Tóthová
Borrowing heavily from fairy tales, fables and science fiction, the art of Magda Tóthová revolves around modern utopias and social models and their failures. Her works address personal and social issues, both the private and the political. The stylistic device of personification is central to the social criticism emblematic of her work and to the negotiation of concepts used to construct norms.…
An unsuccessful co-production An unsuccessful co-production
If you know your way around, you might discover that every month and maybe even every week you stand the chance to receive money for your cultural project. Successful applicants have enough money, average applicants have enough to keep their mouths shut, and the unsuccessful ones are kept in check by the chance that they might get lucky in the future. One natural result has been the emergence of…
The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

S.d.Ch, Solitaires and Periphery Culture (a generation born around 1970)
Josef Jindrák
Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

We are the fifth global party! Pítr Dragota and Viki Shock, Fragmenty geniality / Fragments of Charisma, May and June 1997. When Viki came to visit, it was only to show me some drawings and collages. It was only as an afterthought that he showed me the Czech samizdat publication from the late 1990s, THC Review. When he saw how it fascinated me, he panicked and insisted that THAT creation is…
