CODES OF THE MIDDLE CLASS
ZVON: The 5th Biennial of Young Art Dům U Kamenného Zvonu, (House at the Stone Bell) , Prague 4. 14. – 6. 5. 2005 The Prague Biennial of Young Art at the House of the Stone Bell (Zvon) has its own unique place in the Czech Republic, an established niche with a specific radius of action. That means: it has taken place in the prestigious exhibition hall in the middle of the Czech capital five…

GO ONLY HALFWAY? AT LEAST THEN YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE.
To any passer-by one Friday morning last May, the smoke billowing over the roof of Prague’s House at the Stone Bell could have seemed rather frightening. But this gothic monument was not aflame; the smoke was an experiment by Jana Kalinová to create an artificial cloud there, while worried firemen stood by. White gas wafted through a transparent pipe upwards reaching a set of balloons,…

PAS TO THE CIVILIAN ZONE
Production of Contemporary Activities, (Produkce aktivit současnosti -- PAS) dates back to 2000. Its goal is to enter into the “civil/citizen zone.” In June, 2004, PAS invited six artists to prepare instructions to make art. Anatolij Osmolovskij (Russia), Liam Gillick (Great Britain), Monika Sosnowská (Poland), Oliver Musovik (Macedonia), Roman Ondák (Slovakia) and Swetlana Hegerová (Germany)…

RAFANI 2: THE FUTURE SHOULD BE PLANNED
It seemed for a moment that Rafani was losing its breath. This Czech art group — which investigates whether and how art can be linked to political ideologies and whether it is possible to carry on a deeper discussion outside of self-promotion — had became its own pastiche. Their tailored uniforms had frayed at the sleeves and their KSČM communist party membership cards were returned with humbug. …

MAREK POKORNÝ: WHO FROM WHERE TO WHERE AND WHO SWITCHES OFF WHOM
The curator and theoretician Marek Pokorný returned after a few years in Rome to the Czech Republic and became curator of the House of the Lords of Kunštát (dům pánů z Kunštátu) in Brno. A year later he left the position to become the director of the Moravian Gallery. Is this change a promise of new opportunities for contemporary art or the end of work well begun? You started profiling Dům…
Only Good Ideas Jiří Ptáček | info | 01.01.2004
ONLY GOOD IDEAS
NOD Praha, 15 January – 7 February 2004 Ivan Vosecký and Markéta Othová rolled themselves up into one creative ball for the sake of the exhibition Dobrý nápad (A Good Idea). This was the best idea they could have had. The doomed generation pictures we are used to from Vosecký and Othová’s voyeuristic melancholy were mixed into a precise formation of hybrid design, smoggy beauty and consumerist…
