Welcoming of the new Umelec. Exhibition will show artworks and artifacts related to the recently published issue. Ryuta Amae / Martin Dušek / Mark Ferelli / Beth Fox / Annabel Frearson / Ivars Gravlejs / Nicolas Moulin / Bewegung NURR / S.d.Ch / Pavla Sceranková

Just like the last year Divus gallery and publishing house presents a show grouping the ungroupable. A selection of artists and their artworks relating to the newest issue of Umelec magazine will open on August 30 and continue for the whole of September. Among the things you will look at and listen to is an animation of certain cup motif by Slovak artist Pavla Sceranková; London-based Mark Ferelli will bring his nunchaku soaked with dreams of Bruce Lee and blood of the Clumsy, let alone a series of VHS reeking of asian legend; collages of Czech national silly dreamscapes by playwright and puppeteer S.d.Ch. will hang on walls; thanks do Czech Martin Dušek you'll find out what "kroj" means in fashion world and how it relates one's sovereign identity in clothing - watch out for figurines; there will be a photo by Bewegung NURR that will challenge your idea of intellectual bling, that is, if you had any in the first place; we will show you a monograph by Slovak artist, which we believe is the way these books should be done; some manipulated photography by Nicolas Moulin, our Berlin-based French connection, and Ryuta Amae, our Paris based Japanese connection will manipulate you to think of J. G. Ballard; Beth Fox, a witty Irish expat and demystifying art world commentator will suggest a few artworks that should be done, maybe; the frankensteinian lyrics of Annabel Frearson´s Bad Brain Call pop music will be available; there is going to be a loop of silly cartoons Pat and Mat hinting at Gordic knot of reknown self-deprecation of Czechs and blind pride in their skillful "golden hands"; and last but not least thanks to Latvian Ivars Gravlejs a lot of things in the space will be just SUPER.

Nick Land – An Experiment in Inhumanism Nick Land – An Experiment in Inhumanism
Nick Land was a British philosopher but is no longer, though he is not dead. The almost neurotic fervor with which he scratched at the scars of reality has seduced more than a few promising academics onto the path of art that offends in its originality. The texts that he has left behind are reliably revolting and boring, and impel us to castrate their categorization as “mere” literature.
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…

My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.

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…

THC Review and the Condemned Past

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…

Who’s Afraid of Motherhood?
Zuzana Štefková
Expanding the definition of “mother” is also a space for reducing pressure and for potential liberation.1 Carol Stabile The year was 2003, and in the deep forests of Lapák in the Kladno area, a woman in the later phase of pregnancy stopped along the path. As part of the “Artists in the Woods” exhibit, passers-by could catch a glimpse of her round belly, which she exposed especially for them in…
